Jennifer Kolari Discusses Weaning Your Child

kolari thumbnailThis week at Kolari’s Corner on InfoMommy, Jennifer Kolari answers a question from a reader who is having trouble weaning her 17-month-old son from breastfeeding.

Jennifer advises gradually cutting back on daytime feedings and leaving the nighttime feeding for last. She emphasizes that it’s important to give extra snuggles and comfort but not to give in no matter how much he cries. Giving in rewards the crying and will only make your child unhappier because he will cry more to get what he wants.
