Sore nipples and engorgement can make breastfeeding tough. But oftentimes, saying goodbye to breastfeeding when it's time to wean can be even harder. If you are trying to get your baby off the boob, you might want to look out for some of these weaning milestones that will let you know you're on the right track.
Weaning is not an easy process. It can be difficult for mom and baby to give up this special bonding time. But with a little patience and the help of friends and family, you can get through the process. If your baby typically wants to nurse when you are at home, it can help to spend more time outside of the house as you're trying to wean, according to Kelly Mom. As you are trying to cut out nighttime feedings, allow your partner to help out with the bedtime routine, and give yourself a little time to relax and recharge, as Babble suggested. And if you're worried you and your baby will never be this close again, you can set aside a little time each day for extra cuddles.
