Planning to wean my 10.5 months old baby
GAYATHRI, PARENT OF 2 YEAR OLD

Hi
My DD s 10.5 months old she wakes every night every hour. She takes some real feed and many pacifying feed...it's very difficult for me.. I tried skipping pacifying feed by rocking patting but nothing works...she s relaxed only on my breast... So I decide to wean her in order to reduce my dependency while sleeping...

Plz let me know how I can wean her... Is there any oil that ll make her loss interest in breastfeeding.

A lip or tongue tie can impact mom’s comfort latching (or nursing can be very painful) and/or can impact baby’s ability to nurse effectively (and therefore baby may not gain weight well or moms milk production may be low). If you suspect baby has a tongue or lip tie, i would recommend consulting with your baby’s doctor.
