Breastfeeding doesn’t have to be all or nothing. While pediatricians recommend exclusive breastfeeding (no formula or other supplemental nutrition) for your baby’s first six months of life, partial breastfeeding—also called partial weaning or combination feeding—may be the right choice for you. How often and how long you breastfeed your baby is up to you and depends on your circumstances. Even if you plan to use formula, the partial weaning process still relies on direct breastfeeding in conjunction with bottle feeds. The implementation of a partial weaning process is a great way to help facilitate the development of a child’s feeding practices as well as give new moms a much needed break from the constant call of a baby’s hunger cries.

kellymom.com:: Partial Weaning & Combination Feeding www.kellymom.com Breastfeeding is not an all-or-nothing process. You can always keep one or more feedings per day and eliminate the rest. Many moms will continue to nurse only at night and/or first thing in the morning for many months after baby has weaned from all other nursings. How breastfeeding worked out with partial weaning: Both boys nursed round the clock until a year, even while starting on foods. At one year, both were pretty much breastfeeding upon waking/breakfast, lunch, nap, dinner, bedtime.

My oldest was not sleeping through the night yet at a year so he also was nursing one time in the night. Simply stated; partial weaning is when you don’t wean your baby from breastfeeding completely. I decided to do partial breastfeeding so I could still have my freedom and be able to provide the nutrition of breast milk to my baby. It has it’s perks and I still get to breastfeed my baby in the morning and before bed. For help with the weaning process contact a La Leche League Leader.

WEANING AN OLDER CHILD. To quote Dr. William Sears, “There is no set number of years you should nurse your baby.” If you and your child enjoy breastfeeding, there is no reason you need to stop. Both of you will continue to benefit from breastfeeding as long as you like. Partial Weaning/ Combination Feeding S I posted this first on the breastfeeding board, but thought this group might be able to help more since our babies are so close in age.

Partial weaning Partial weaning may be an option if you are feeling overwhelmed by your child’s need to breastfeed round the clock. Shortening the length of feeds or reducing their frequency may be enough to make you feel less overwhelmed. They requested information about partial breastfeeding which might encourage them not to give up breastfeeding. The results reveal that obese women’s experiences of breastfeeding in many ways are similar to those of normal-weight women, for example as regards breastfeeding as a natural part of motherhood, the challenges of breastfeeding and. I think I might be interested in partial weaning my son.

I’ll be returning to work in a couple of weeks and I absolutely detest pumping. I think for the sake of my mental health I would prefer to have my son formula fed during the day.

To do a partial weaning, follow the step-by-step instructions in “The practical details of weaning,” above, to decrease your number of breastfeedings until your milk production adjusts gradually downward.

However, direct suckling at the breast during the first 24 hours postpartum interacts with maternal obesity status to determine milk transfer at 60 hours postpartum.

Although postpartum levels fall throughout the next 4 weeks, substantial levels are maintained throughout the first year, during gradual weaning between 6 and 9 months, and even during partial breastfeeding (when the infant receives solid foods) in the second year of life (Figure 5-4 and Table 5-2).

The advantages of pumping the breast at least every 4 hours are to ensure that the baby will receive breast milk when the mother is at work and to promote the continued supply of breast milk even though the baby is not feeding during the day.

  • I loved how you said it makes you feel more like yourself again!! I’ll look forward to that, I’ve been nursing 5 years 2 months straight, no breaks, between my two daughters. Back to back! My younger one is 3 and I feel partially ready but also know it’ll be a struggle… can’t believe I don’t feel totally ready at this point! My first weaned easily after age two when she saw that she had a newborn baby sister who needed it more. Thanks for sharing your experiences!

  • I feel the same way about vlogs, it’s awesome to look back at! They don’t do the best in views but I’m always like who cares it’s mainly for me! I see greys in the back!! Lol yasss.

  • I have two little boys, age difference 1y11m. Now they are 4y and 6y and I`m loving it how they play together �� I have a huge age gap with my brother (8 years) so I always thought I want my kids with little age cap. First year is not easy, but then it`s easier ��
    If you wanna have like 12 kids, then go for it girl ❤️

  • I used to think I wanted a small age gap of 2 years but then I had my second baby right before my first child’s 6th birthday and it’s really the best (for me at least lol). He’s so helpful and so independent, I don’t feel like my second baby is suffering from lack of undivided attention. If my first had been smaller I’m not sure I could have handled it. I think it might have felt similar after he was about 4 so that would have been a little closer together with the same situation. And I also work full time so that changes a lot in terms of how I divide the short time I do get with them. I think it varies for each family! Whatever feels right to you! If you can handle it then go for it!

  • Very nice video. I don’t really know what a good age gap would be. Maybe two years apart for me. I was blessed with twins lol and when I married my husband 14 years ago, I gained a wonderful son and daughter. So now I have a 21, 19 and the twins are 13. It’s a pretty nice gap for me! But good luck in whatever you do ❤️
