Wean Gently

Wean isn’t a dirty word! Wean simply means transition or change. Think of weaning as a way to reestablish balance in your breastfeeding relationship, get more sleep or end annoying behaviors on the breast.

1. Don’t offer, don’t refuse, don’t assume

2. Sleep for the baby 6 months or older 

3. You don’t need to wean at 1

4. Is your baby the boss of you?

5. Document this experience
