Welcome to Child-Led Weaning.
From the book Natural Family Living by Peggy O'Mara
Child-led weaning means trusting your child and having confidence that your child knows what she needs. It means trusting yourself enough to ignore a society that claims to know your child better than you do. This weaning will be the first of many you will face with your child and the way you approach it can set the tone for later child rearing decisions.
We must trust our children to show us their needs, and trust our ability to recognize and meet those needs.
The purpose of this forum is for education, awareness and support for Child-led Weaning. Only specific Child-led Weaning threads will be hosted in this forum. General breastfeeding posts are better placed in the Breastfeeding forum.
Condemnation of extended breastfeeding is inappropriate and not hosted on Mothering.com.
It is our wish that the Child-led Weaning Forum be a supportive and welcoming atmosphere for everyone. Please help us achieve this by doing your part and adhering to our guidelines. And as always, please make sure your posting is in accordance with the MDC User Agreement.
