59: How to Wean your Child from Breastfeeding
Show Notes

A person's breastfeeding journey can be filled with so many emotions.

Choosing to wean your baby from breastfeeding can be filled with excitement, sadness, nerves, and/or guilt. 

Every woman is different in how she feels when this time of her and her child's life transitions and it's important to recognize these spectrum of feelings as normal and valid.

On this episode, I welcome back IBCLC Melissa Mancini (@more_than_milk on Instagram).  

We discuss how mothers decide the time is best for them to wean, some tips on how to wean, and we discuss the emotional aspects of weaning that are not always talked about.
