The child and mother have these feelings

The World Health Organization recommends that infants should be exclusively breastfed for at least 6 months, and then continue breastfeeding until they are 2 years of age or older. The American Pediatric Association recommends that mothers breastfeed at least one year old. The Chinese Nutrition Society recommends: exclusive breastfeeding within 6 months, continued breastfeeding from 7 to 24 months, and a gradual transition to cereal staple food. In other words, as long as the first 6 months are guaranteed to be exclusively breastfeeding, try to feed until 1 year old, and when to break afterwards, it depends on the wishes of the mother and the baby. Therefore, mothers must know that weaning is not the responsibility of others. It is the private affair of you and your child. When you want to wean, you and your child's feelings decide. The child and mother have these feelings, reminding the weaning time is up, and then dragging on, being involved and suffering.

Mother's feelings

Most mothers enjoy the sweet and warm breastfeeding time of holding their children to breastfeed and occasionally smiling at each other. But if the mother is busy with work, stressed, lacks strength, and has less and less milk, the child with long teeth bites the nipple many times, and there is more irritability, restlessness, and pain in the heart, then there is no need to force herself to continue breastfeeding. Fed. And the mother is still barely breastfeeding, which only makes herself more painful.

Children's feelings

The child has a natural attachment and closeness to his mother's breasts and an instinctive response to sucking. Therefore, if the child no longer depends on the mother's breasts from emotion to behavior, he will not find the mother's nipples when he wakes up, and will cry when he can't eat breast milk. Instead, the dependence on the mother’s breasts is transferred to complementary foods and formula milk, which is very interesting for adults to eat. At this time, if you want to wean, you can also consider weaning your child.

After the child grows up to 6 months, pure breastfeeding has been unable to meet the child's growth and development needs, waiting for the child to grow up to about 2 years old needs more nutrition. If a child's milk love is serious, which affects her interest in other foods and rejects other foods, it will hinder the intake and absorption of other nutrients and delay the child's growth and development. So if the child has serious problems with milk lovers, parents should also consider the problem of weaning.

Weaning must depend on the wishes of the mother and the child, choose a good time, and proceed step by step, which is more conducive to the physical and mental health of the child.
