Weaning is an inevitable component of breast/chestfeeding. Many families have expressed feeling unprepared for the experience and the challenges they face in that journey. This presentation will explore the current research and lived experiences of weaning among different families and cultures. We will discuss strategies that were both effective and ineffective in the weaning process, time period in which families began the weaning process as well as tips and tricks from the parent perspective that lead to successfully weaning their child. Weaning will be discussed in the context of the impact on both the parent and the child.
