Q&A: How Do I Wean Baby?

My baby is almost two weeks old, and breastfeeding hurts. How do I go about stopping?

It makes sense to want to stop breastfeeding when it hurts. After all, avoiding pain is only human. But an alternative to quitting is to get breastfeeding help. Breastfeeding is not supposed to hurt and you may be able to relieve your pain by making small adjustments to how your baby latches on.
