Does breast-feeding song your mind for your toddler,
Weaning off morning and night feeds
Your child’s last remaining breastfeeds might be at bedtime and when she wakes in the morning.
To drop the morning feed, try to be up and dressed before your child wakes, then offer him a cup of milk and breakfast.
To drop the bedtime feed, a change of routine can help break the old routine. You could try a sleepover with grandparents, or your partner could read stories to your child instead of a breastfeed.
If your child is used to being fed to sleep, change the routine by offering a story after the feed, as an incentive to stay awake.
Feeding in another room, and not just before bed, can also help break the association between feeding and sleeping. Once you’ve broken the association, over time you can drop the feed.
When weaning your child off night feeds, make sure her bedtime still involves a relaxed, warm routine with lots of cuddles
