Right time to wean your baby!

Right time to wean your baby!

The choice to breastfeeding is a personal one. If you believe the time is right to wean your baby, then it is. Only a mother can and should make this decision.

Usually doctors and pediatricians recommend breastfeeding exclusively for the first six months, then slowly starting with semi solid foods along with breastfeed for at least to age of one and after that continue breastfeed for as long as Mom and baby both wish for. Some studies suggest that within 6 months a baby’s digestive system gets enough time to mature. The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for at least two years.

Don’t rush into weaning your baby.

First you should keep an eye on your baby that if your baby is showing some signs to move from breastfeeding to wean. If your baby stays in a sitting position and are able to hold their head stable. And if your baby could make a proper co-ordination between the eyes, hands and mouth, can look at food, grab it, and put it in the mouth.

You should be particular and careful about starting weaning only after completion of your baby’s fourth month. Also never put solids in your baby’s bottle.

Happy Motherhood!
