Children 1 Year And 4 Months Wean Themselves?
Assalamualaikum I am with 1 child, I want to ask how to handle children weaning themselves at an age that is still in need of nutritional intake …? Please answer Thank you
The best food for babies 0-6 months is breast milk. Then it is recommended to continue breastfeeding until the age of 2 years. But after the child is 1 year old, the source of the child's nutrition is not only from ASI but also from ASI / MP ASI complementary food.
If your child does not want to breastfeed immediately, you can try to give milk that is milked through other media, for example with a glass. If the child still does not want to, you do not need to worry first, the most important thing is that the child gets enough nutrition from daily food while still trying to give milk again.
Therefore, make sure you provide healthy, nutritionally balanced MP ASI to meet your child's daily nutritional needs. You can also consult with a lactation counselor so you can be helped in the breastfeeding process.
Hope it helps you,
