While weaning is a very valid and very distinct part of the breastfeeding journey, it’s a phase that is often not talked about. In this episode, Maris shares her personal experience of bringing her breastfeeding journey to an end after over 2 years of nursing her son, and she covers her reasons for wanting to make this transition. She details exactly how she communicated the the process with her son, and reflects on how she decided when was the right time to stop breastfeeding. She offers practical tips for how to ease into the transition for both mother and child while touching on how to alleviate engorgement and manage mental/emotional symptoms that may arise. P.S. click here for my favorite body lotion that I mix with peppermint to alleviate engorgement. It’s a must for weaning mothers!
