I need suggestions on how 2 wean my 3month old. Going back 2 wrk soon and need 2 wean him off. He always drank from bottle. it's just that he still wants the breast about a hour after the bottle. The breast is his comfort. He cries a lot for the breast. He doesn't take the pacifier he cries even more when u try 2 give it 2 him. Any suggestions?

I think the baby sees you as his comfort so you need to break this. The easiest way is to get a fleecy pram blanket and rub it around your chest so that it has your scent on it and then give him the dummy and blanket to snuggle. You need to use the blanket as a substute you and the dummy as a breast. It will take a week or so but every time you pick him up give him the blanket as well so he associates the blanket with comfort. My daughter has a fleecy blanket that she takes to bed with her every night. I did have the foresight to buy two identical ones so that there was always one in the car and one in her bed should we need it.
