From breastfeeding: Try to breastfeed for at least a year. There are benefits to breastfeeding longer, for up to 2 years or more. When you wean your baby, go slowly. First, drop midday feedings. Then drop morning feedings. Last, drop evening feedings.
From the bottle: Start weaning at 12 to 18 months. To help her be ready, start to give her formula, water or juice from a sippy cup at 6 to 9 months.
