No need: As long as you are supplementing your child's diet with solid food, there is no need to stop breastfeeding yet.

I've just stop breast feeding my son because he turn 1 two days ago how long does it take for the pain to go away? What can I use for the pain?
Weaning: Wean slowly. Cut one breastfeeding session every few days. Replace it by giving the baby a bottle or cup. I recommend cutting the first morning and bedtime feedings last.

If you remove less milk, the supply will go down. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Promotes connection: It takes a village to raise a baby. My suggestion is that all those who will be involved in caring for the baby be well informed about feeding, etc. I also recommend that an expectant couple start discussing early what classes on labor/ delivery he should attend in order to prepare for that big event. The more education a family has, the better they can detect or prevent problems when baby's home. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Weaning: The aap recommends that babies be breastfed exclusively for 6 months, and continue to receive breastmilk for up to one year or as long as both mother and baby desire. Deciding when to wean is a personal decision, but ask your pediatrician for advice if you are having trouble. If you feel like "giving up" because of problems with nursing, please ask for help from your doctor or lactation consultant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Prenatal vitamins: Prenatal vitamins are recommended during breast feeding. The breast milk will begin to strip some nutrients from your body (calcium from your bones, etc) & these vitamins assure you will have enough of these specific nutrients available so the baby can get them in adequate amounts & not deplete your body in the process. ...Read more
