Failed breastfeeding wean

Aug 15, 2017 | PARENTING

Failed! Yes these things happen. A lot of reasons why a child may be ready one minute and then retract the next. I mean how many times as adults do we change out minds about things even the clothes we wear alone.


o while i thought she was ready, who knows she may have read on mama’s emotions as i was sort of struggling with the fact that, that was it. No more ‘kaka’, no more Nashe and me moments. So i took it as this happened for a reason. She still comes and says, “yucky kaka” then will get straight into it and say, ” no mama. YUMMY kaka” with emphasis.

I am sure if i did some research i would find that there are many women who have tried and failed. The other day i read somewhere where they mentioned failing can be due to the mother’s emotional state too. Depending on the method of weaning depression for the mother can be a result and that can affect them because their hormones are all over the place. It can also be due to the fact that the child was not yet ready.

So yes ladies and gentlemen. I tried to wean my almost 2 year old and failed. So once again I am enjoying my moments with her. I am one of those people who refuses to listen to people’s opinions on breastfeeding. If they have an issue with the age of my breastfed child they can either walk away or even better keep their opinions.

Till the next trial
