Whether you've been crying about the end of your breastfeeding journey, counting down the days till you can introduce solids, or fall somewhere in between, you'll never be truly prepared for that big transition. With all of the research on various weaning techniques (not to mention everything you read on the message boards) you may be tempted to jump in head first and "see how it goes." Winging it, however, doesn't take into consideration the things you should never do while weaning, that are almost guaranteed to make weaning more stressful than it should be.
AsI said, it's almost impossible to prepare. But by knowing the things to avoid while weaning, you can try to make a plan of attack that fits both you and your baby's needs. There are as many weaning methods as there are babies and, like most aspects of raising a baby, no two weaning experiences are exactly the same. With these expert-backed weaning don'ts up your sleeve, you'll be able to tailor a plan for transitioning your baby to solids that works for your baby's preferences, schedule, and, above all, temperament. Because changing your baby's way of life is hard enough without these extra obsticles.
