The toddler years are not easy. They may not like to try new things and weaning from breast or bottle can be difficult. However, weaning a toddler can be made a little easier by following a few steps. First and foremost, parents may want to plan in advance. Toddlers may not react well to change, think about how potential situations will be handled before they occur. Another important tip that may assist during this time is to offer alternatives. If the toddler wants breast or bottle, offer them something else including food and/or comfort items. Sometimes the toddler may not be hungry, but seeking comfort. Be consistent is equally important. Feeling bad and giving the child the breast or bottle can be confusing to the young mind. Understand that it will not be easy and will take time but you can successfully wean your toddler.
