How To Start Weaning
When is the right time to start weaning?
You are the best judge of when its time to begin weaning. Don’t set any other deadlines until your child and you are ready.
There is no right or wrong way to wean so ignore those friends, relatives and internet bloggers who tell you to do it a certain way. Do what feels right to you and let your child wean naturally.
