Just a question for the breastfeeding mums out there............
When is a fairly normal time to wean your baby off the breast?
I seem to get people asking me all the time now... "Are you STILL breastfeeding her?!". I just hold my head high and say "Yes isnt it wonderful!". I tend not to listen to them, but Im just curious as to know what is 'the norm' - if there is such a thing!
Brianna is 6 months now and still has 5 full breastfeeds a day. She also has some solids now too. (Farex and steamed pureed veges).
She seems to go really well with this at the moment.
Ive been blessed enough to be able to breastfeed with no major issues (thanks to some great advice!!). Im extreemly comfortable with it, and Bri is a very happy healthy bubba.
Im just curious to know when you all weaned your babies.
I have a wedding to go to in October and my hubby and I were just talking about it last night which made me think of this. (I know its a while away, but hey!).
She'll be 9 months by then. How many feeds a day is pretty normal at that age?
How much does substituting a bottle feed for a breastfeed affect your milk supply? (I cant seem to be able to express really well ).
To this point she hasnt had to take a bottle for a feed so Im unsure about the whole process. We try to get her to take a bit of water in a bottle sometimes - she seems to be getting better at it!
Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated!
