    Good evening madam. weaning a child calls for a lot of caution. my advice for you is to gradually reduce the number of times he/she sucks while introducing solids and semisolids simultaneously. it also calls for a lot of patience. as you reduce the number of times your baby breastfeeds, your body automatically reduces milk secretion rate, so this should not be a problem. remember to introduce the child to a variety of solids and semisolids. their feeds should be thoroughly cooked and soft with little or no spicy or else it will scare him away. all the best
