Changing from one SSRI to another

Dear CS

I will need to change from fluoxetine to sertraline in about a month or 2' s time for breastfeeding purposes. It will be with the help of my psych, but I just want to find out in meantime how one does that? will I simply be stopping the fluoxetine one day and continuing with the sertraline the next or is there a washout period?

Generally there should be no need for anything elaborate like washout periods, etc, when switching from one SSRI to another.
