If you have found that your nursling has abruptly stopped. That is a strike.
Weaning takes time.
Strikes can happen for numerous reasons.....so look for these on top of the onset of a strike:
new growth (milestones etc)
changes in environment
injury to baby (recent fall or accident)
Weaning is not a bad thing.
I think we put so much emphasis on child-led weaning that we tend to negate mother-led weaning.
Tips on how to mother-led wean:
Take out the mid-day feeds.
Go slow.....if baby is resisting. (Some may not resist at all!)
Lastly take away the most important feed to your baby.
(Some may be the 1st in the morning and some may be the night-time session.)
If you have the time, go slow and at your baby's speed.
For me....it took 3 days!
It can be done mamas!
Congrats to how far you've come!
