Number of days on breast milk: 21 months, 12 days;
Number of formula feeds: around 5, maybe;
Number of bottle feeds of breast milk: around 10, maybe;
Frequency of feeds: every 3 to 4 hours or any time Mother sat down anywhere;
Baby's state: content with the status quo;
Mother's state: exhausted;
Doctor's advice: "all it takes is one vote";
Mother's response: "yeah, sure";
Weaning methods considered: neem oil (rejected for possible side effects on digestive system) and discipline (neither Mother's nor Baby's heart in it);
Mother has a brainwave: asafetida;
Days it takes to wean: 1.
Not saying it'll work for everyone, but it was the quickest and least painful (although engorgement bothered Mother for a while) in terms of getting Baby to move on.
