Night Weaning, Gently With Love

with Pinky McKay

Episode 18: Night Weaning, Gently With Love


Thinking about how to approach weaning your little one off night feeds? Well, Pinky’s main message is ‘Gradually and with love’ :>)

In this episode, Pinky reminds us to be empathic and look at it from baby’s side – how do we feel as adults if we wake up distressed, uncomfortable, thirsty, hungry or just really wired from the day’s activities.

Teething, indigestion, toileting, dreams… there are so many reasons for waking at night. A flexible, progressive approach to change – what a great bit of modelling for our bubs ;>)
