Weaning corresponds with the moment that baby stops breastfeeding to start feeding from a bottle or onto a range of foods if they are 6 months or more. It is an obligatory step that can take place very calmly if the transition is made in a gentle way by following our advice.
Golden rules for weaning baby
From birth to the age of 3, your baby’s sleep rhythm will vary a lot. At the beginning they will sleep up to 16 hours a day, and then their rests slowly become further apart until they have adapted to a day/night rhythm. Each baby is unique and will reveal themselves to be someone who needs a lot of sleep or otherwise! Table lists average values: let baby find their own rhythm.
