Weaning is the process of switching a baby from breastfeeding to
bottle-feeding, from breast- or bottle-feeding to a cup, or breast- or
bottle-feeding to solid foods.
Weaning may take a few months or more than a year. It begins when a
baby starts eating solid foods, at about 6 months of age. It ends when the
child no longer breastfeeds or takes a bottle.
