8-15 months: Breast feeding is nutrition +nurturing & while baby needs the nutrition they may not want the cuddle time after they begin to explore their world. If baby cuts feeds short& wants to get down & explore, they are starting a natural weaning process. If able to handle a hard nose sippy cup, try to move to the cup rather than a bottle. Either way, baby may want to carry their feed while exploring.
