How, when and why to introduce foods other than breastmilk

Im naughty I gave in

Postby wilfred » Wed Apr 08, 2015 12:53 pm

So I have weaning DD2 from her afternoon feed, and all has been going well. Except for yesterday. She climbed aboard my lap, put her hand on my breasts and said "Boobie!". I told her that there was no more boobies in the day anymore. Well the tantrum that followed wasn't pleasant, the only way to calm her down was to give in... :oops:

Fingers crossed it was a minor setback. Any advice on how I can distract her from the lovely boobies?

Hugs. Ummmm....never sit down ever, ever again? Find something else much more entertaining to do/eat/play/sing??

Tricky, isn't it?

That was my EXACT thought before I read your response LOL!

distraction distraction distraction. If she really gets upset, compromise on the feed being 2 minutes (or whatever time frame you prefer)
