Breastfeeding is a wonderful experience, creating a special bond shared by both mother and baby. But there comes a time when both parties realize that this unique connection must eventually end as the baby grows up to be a child.
Weaning is both a happy and sad experience. We know that in choosing to breastfeed, you are expressing your dedication to provide the best for your baby. Likewise, choosing the best way to wean yourself and your baby is but another sign of your dedication.
Being breastfeeding moms ourselves, we understand that choosing to wean and how to do it isn't always easy. Information on safe weaning practices aren't always easily available. Moms who ask in forums risk receiving hostile reactions from people who do not undersatnd their reasons for weaning. And yet, weaning from breastfeeding is an inevitable part of the breastfeeding relationship.
Our varied experiences to weaning is one of the reasons why we decided to put up WeaningBreastfeeding.com. There is no single correct way to wean from breastfeeding. We'd like to share what worked for us and learn even more about what worked for moms everywhere. We want to offer support to you - veteran and new moms alike - as you and your baby journey into a new way of relating to each other, an amazing experience that only those who breastfeed share.
