I have a 9 year old that was weaned at 3 months old, i was weaned at 3 months old and so were my friends babies. So when a 3-4 month old baby is not gaining weight, not sleeping and generally hungry all the time, should you listen to midwives who say NO don't do it before 6 months?? My daughter is 5 months old and i weaned her at 3 months old (against the advice of the widwifes) and now she has 3 meals a day, gains loads of weight, sleeps great and is very happy but i have 3 friends - yes 3 - who are all having problems before 6 months old, it's all their 1st babies, their all breast feeding and they have been scared by the midwife not to wean their babies. What do people think please? Thanks.
