Q.

How do I wean from breast to bottle?

How do I go about weaning my daughter (7 weeks) from breast to bottle? Or can I just stop giving her my breast and put her on the bottle?

Hi,

Why would you want to take her off the breast? is there a problem with breastfeeding?

Breastmilk is so much better for baby, and you should try and do it for as long as you can.

It contains everything she needs and more. I could only breastfeed until 4 months coz i had to go back to work, and i miss it so much.

Please reconsider
