Book Description: 

If you are a breastfeeding mother, then you probably have the same questions that most new mothers have: when is the right time to wean, and what is the best way to go about it? The new, revised and updated edition of The Nursing Mother's Guide to Weaning has the answers. Experts say that breastfeeding success depends on getting off to a good start, and much of this book is devoted to advice for resolving breastfeeding difficulties that often lead to early weaning. This book also explores the hygienic, nutritional, and emotional concerns that make weaning from the breast such an important and often difficult transition. Best-selling author and lactation expert Kathleen Huggins and co-author Linda Ziedrich make it easier than ever for you to bottle-feed safely, introduce solids gradually, and find new ways to keep a growing child secure and happy during and after weaning.
