Weaning Baby

"Weaning" has a couple different meanings, depending upon your locale. In the UK, weaning means to begin offering foods other than breast milk or formula. In the U.S., weaning is synonymous with giving up breastfeeding.

So to my American friends, just because you begin to offer solid foods does not mean you have to end breastfeeding. It's simply a matter of semantics. A solid food regimen is a healthy complement to breastfeeding, which should be your baby's main source of nutrition for his first year.
