One of the issues that arise for moms: at what age to wean baby from the breast? The answer is ambiguous. There are many judgments on this topic. Anecdotal evidence suggests that prolonged breastfeeding is beneficial to the development and health of the baby. Also people think the younger the child, the easier the process of weaning.
A nursing mother needs to focus on your feeling, your emotional state and the willingness of the child to switch to another type of feeding after breast milk.
Psychologists recommend to carry out a smooth finish breastfeeding. That the child was not too hard, weaning should be done gradually, introducing solid foods and replacing each feeding. But often there are situations when the baby eats adult food, and in parallel asks for "a favorite treat". That's when moms take the decision sharply to engage with such snacks.
Options of how to do it better, there is quite a lot. Someone recommends to smear the breast with mustard or something tasteless for a child, someone is trying to explain to your child that no more milk.
Important to remember that children are unique and each will find its own solution to this issue.
