It’s perfect for nursing moms of toddlers who are considering weaning (and may need help deciding if they are ready to stop breastfeeding), or are ready to wean, but need help planning how to wean.

The book offers a discussion of how to decide to wean (including why you may not want to wean), why weaning can be difficult, the case for weaning gradually, and offers a path to making it happen over the course of a few months, starting with night weaning, and finishing in fully weaning.
