How do I wean off amytryptiline?

How do I wean off amytryptiline?

Amitriptyline: The proper way of weaning off depends upon the dose. If you are taking a full anti-depressant dose of Amitriptyline (200-300 mg), then reduce by 50 mg every week. If you are just using it either to sleep or for relief of nerve pain, cut down by 10 mg a week. You will not get a specific withdrawal syndrome when you stop; you are more likely just to experience a possible recurrence of prior symptoms. ...Read more

Joint decision: The nutrition & nurturing benefits of breast feeding are well accepted, with some drop off in the nutrition aspect after kids are well into solids @ 8m.The nurturing aspect varies with the kid. If baby makes short work of the feed, 10min/side & wiggles to get down they are showing they don't value the nurturing as much as others. These kids can be weaned as you desire. Those that linger need longer. ...Read more

How do I wean my baby off of the pacifier?

How do I wean my baby off of the pacifier?

Get ready, get set: In seven days, no more pacifier; in six days; in five days; etc. Then, when they wake up on the day it is to be gone, make sure it is absolutely gone. Nowhere in the house. Even if in the trash, they'll find it. It'll only take a day or two and it'll be a non-issue. Honest. (yes, your child may not count or know what days are, but they'll get the countdown concept.). ...Read more

How can I wean my baby off of the pacifier?

How can I wean my baby off of the pacifier?

Work with baby: A pacifier can be a babies best buddy or of no consequence at all. If it is closely held, adult thinkers need to be creative helping baby give it up. Take it away or cut it up and the kid may cry & hate you for months+.I encourage a ribbon clip as they begin to walk, so they don't use the mouth as a pocket.A ziplock bag allows possession with a barrier for use. A clear case preserves the prize. ...Read more
