You might agree that child-led weaning is ideal for many families. But for whatever good reason, you’ve decided against it. It’s time to move on, get your body back, and wean your baby, toddler, or preschooler. Yet, you might be wondering: Is mother-led weaning a bad thing? Will your child resent you if you wean him now? Is there a right way or a wrong way to do it? Is mother-led weaning different from cold turkey?
Join Marie and her guest, psychologist and author Ariadne Brill, as they discuss the facts and myths of mother-led weaning for today’s busy families. They’ll help you to discover many options for how to make mother-led weaning work, how to use age-appropriate weaning options or techniques, and how to recognize and deal with resistance behaviors if your baby or child isn’t thrilled with this approach. Although mother-led weaning isn’t for everyone, this episode will help you to try it in a way that is most likely to become a positive process, rather than a negative event.
