Our complete resource on weaning from the breast or bottle (when you're ready), extended breastfeeding, choosing a milk (or not!), selecting cow's milk vs. a non-dairy milk, etc. is HERE! This eBook is a complete resource that covers milk, extended breastfeeding, weaning from the breast or bottle, cup drinking, encouraging water drinking when appropriate, and troubleshooting common issues with these processes.
This eBook is from a developmentally- and nutritionally-appropriate perspective that honors the family dynamic, mother's (and baby's) wishes, and goals and philosophies of each individual scenario. It does not emphasize that only one approach is appropriate for all families. It is inclusive and non-judgmental.
