The Weaning Begins

My baby is almost 11 months I have begun Weaning him from 2 things.

1. Strictly being breastfed
2. Mommy and Daddy’s bed

Normal nursing times:
1. Breakfast
2. Nap Time Feeding
3. Lunch
4. Nap Time Feeding
5. Dinner
6. The Dreaded Night Time Feeding

Dealing with morning:

At first it was a huge struggle and I ended up falling to his aid every time he would cry. But then my husband kept telling me that I can’t have alone time if I keep giving in. Soooo, as painful as it was i first started to feed him well in the morning. I gave him 4 ounces of cereal and enfamil milk . It took a minute for him to like the cereal so I made sure to get a flavored box that he liked, I then included a little bit of eggs, and his 2oz of juice. I did that for a few days and gave him a good play time after eating and all of a sudden it was time went by so fast! We finally had a morning schedule going and I had stopped him from nursing in the mornings!!
