Weaning help
Sue2238 posted:
Hi, I'm in the process of weaning my first child. Ive read lots of tips and spoke to friends and my daughters ped but I'm still pretty lost. Hopefully moms that have been through this can help me. First off I'm concerned that she won't get enough liquid. We've weaned from the mid morning feeding and not from the afternoon bc she's not so hot on the sippy cup yet. I'm down to pumping at 10 and 2 and still nurse morning, at 6pm and bed time. When do I start diluting the breastmilk to whole milk? Does she get as much cows milk as she did breastmilk? Thanks for your help. I'm tired of winging it and hoping that I'm doing the right things.

well, I haven't weaned yet since my daughter is only 5mos. But you didn't mention how old your LO is. Just a word of advice, if she is younger than 1 year, you do NOT want to give her whole (cow's) milk yet. If she's less than a year, you'll need to wean her to formula because she'll still need th nutrients. If she's over a year, then disregard
