|I had planned to wean my baby while I was on leave from work
so that I could be present to give her plenty of physical
reassurance in case she found the process tricky! Now she
has a bad cold and a cough and is not sleeping well at all.
Is it better to persevere with the weaning while it suits
me to do so, or do I have to replan this whole situation?
Unfortunately your baby is unlikely to be amenable to a
change as profound as weaning while she is sick. In fact
any type of upheaval in baby’s life makes weaning
a bad idea. You will have to rethink your excellent plan
of weaning while the two of you were relaxed and could spend
plenty of time together.
