    Smile Hiya!

    Hi there, I'm Chinese and my husband is English, we've met

    while I was working in London and we've been married for a

    year, have a 3-month-old girl. I'm a full time mom but wouldn't

    really mind if I go to work again when my baby is older. I'm in

    HK at the moment and my DH is in Surrey, I was trying to go

    back but postponed my plan since there was SARS and will go

    back in around August. I'd love to stay in HK but my husband

    just wouldn't. Anyway, it's really nice to find this site. I hope my

    little baby - her name is Liberty will speak Cantonese and

    English. I'm breastfeeding Liberty at the moment :breastfed and

    just wondering is there a lot of moms breastfeed out there?

    Hi Lavanda,

    Welcome to GeoBaby!

    D is a :breastfed baby. I tried weaning him at 7mths and wasn't successful. Tried again at 9 months and we made some progress and now at 12 months he's weaned!! YEAH!

    Thank you for the information. I'll try to come to the meeting in July. It's great to know that LLL is in HK too. If I have any questions, I'm sure I'll let you know. Thanks again.

    Dear rani,

    Thanks for replying, I'm just wondering what sort of method did you use to wean? Was D really clingy coz he was breastfed? Did he want formula while you were breastfeeding him?

    Thanks.

    Lavanda,

    D really didn't like the taste of formula initially. I think he ended up accepting it because he preferred the bottle to nursing.

    I started by replacing the last feed with formula. After a few weeks the lunch time feed. And a few weeks later the morning feed. I really didn't rush the weaning process as I was afraid of getting mastitis.

    He was very clingy at one point. But now he's happy to be with other family members too and doesn't look for me.

    Dear Rani,

    Why did you try weaning D? Was there any reason to make you think of weaning? Were your family supportive about breastfeeding?

    (sorry for asking so many questions..)

    Lavanda,

    D didn't care for juices and so I tried giving him some formula so that if I was ever out I didn't have to rush home to nurse him.

    I only started weaning him seriously when he got his upper teeth and it was just to painful to nurse.

    Oh yes, my family have been very supportive.
