When Do I Stop Breast Feeding My Baby?
- 8 Months ago
Breast feeding is one of the best foods for babies up to a year. Breast feeding has long lasting benefits like avoiding infections, asthma, chronic diseases such as diabetes and cholesterol and the list goes on.
The only reason for a mother to stop breast feeding her baby is to get the baby used to different types of food that adults eat. From the month of 6, one can start feeding juices of vegetables and fruit. Solid food can be double cooked and fed to the baby. Different types of formulas can also be given, but continue nursing. From the age of one, try and depend more on formulas and semi solid foods. For two years, one can hold back on cow's milk if any allergies arise, and depend on soy milk. Soy milk has to be tested on the baby before it is made a routine.
