Breast Release in Babies
Breast milk provides the greatest contribution to the development of babies. From the moment your baby is born, all kinds of useful substances are consumed by the mother herself. The foods consumed by the mother pass to the baby with the help of milk when she breastfeeds her baby. Breast milk is very important for the first six months. Even the formation of metabolism provides your baby with breast milk. However, as time passes and your baby starts to grow, he starts to switch to complementary foods. The process of transitioning to supplementary food is more dependent on the condition of your baby's teeth eruption, as it is related to the growth of the baby. With your baby's teeth erupting, your baby starts to eat all kinds of food. Thus, he gets his own food directly and no longer needs an intermediary. In this case, your baby should stop breast milk from now on. This is a very difficult process and requires a lot of patience. Because breastfeeding your baby is the biggest and strongest bond between you and your baby. For this reason, your baby cannot easily let go of the urge to suck.
How should we behave when weaning the baby away from the breast?
It is a very difficult and challenging process for your baby to accept this situation. Therefore, you must be extremely sure of your decision. You are the person who will know best when is the right time for your baby, so don't listen to what other people say. Every child is different and special. And you are the person who knows your own child best. When you decide to stop breastfeeding, you should be in constant dialogue with your baby according to his age. Before you go straight to weaning, you should create opportunities for your baby and tell him how much he has grown. At family dinners, you should definitely put a plate for him and let him know the message you want to give.
Ways to Wean Your Baby
- It would be wrong to cut your baby off the breast all of a sudden. For this reason, you should cut your baby gradually in order to get used to your own body. You can stop breastfeeding slowly in the morning, then reduce sucking meals whenever your baby is sucking according to his sucking habit. One of the biggest things we need to pay attention to during this period is not to get away from your baby under the thought that if he does not see me, he does not want to breastfeed. While this is already a difficult situation for the baby, if you push him away from you, your baby will become restless and react to this event. He is quite right in this reaction. Remember that your baby needs you in every situation and no one can replace you. For this reason, you should spend more time with your baby while this important change in your baby's life is happening. This will allow your baby to adapt to this process more easily.
Another method of weaning is abrupt weaning. In this option, the mother aims to make the baby disgusted by the breast by applying different things to the nipple by changing the color, taste or smell of the nipple. For this reason, tomato paste, ketchup, mustard, cocoa and hot pepper are applied to the nipple. Even a substance called breast stone is sold for the purpose of this method, and it is known to give a bad smell to your breast flour when applied. This method may seem easier to you, but this substance is a very dangerous method for your baby's psychology. Baby psychology experts believe that this method is a trauma that remains in the subconscious in later life.
Another feature is that the mother and child do not meet for a while, but this is a very troublesome method as we explained in the above article. It is not something that your baby can accept right away if he moves away from both the breast and you at once. For this reason, if you have chosen this method, leaving your baby to a person who loves him and your baby is the most plausible result. If he feels loved, it may make your baby feel at peace, though not as much as with you. This person may be his father, grandmother or grandmother, a caregiver.
