Answer: Hi dear the easiest way for both mother and baby, without the severe hormonal shifts, and pain is to do it gradually. For this, I stopped one feeding in a day for about three days. When it came to that time, I offered water, sippy cup of milk, or solid food. There was often tantrums that accompanied this at first, which gave me a chance to employ talking to my child. After about three days, I would cut another feeding and continue this on until I was done.
