    Question I am looking for an Expression or an Idiom

    Hi,

    I would like to know what expression is used when we want to stop babies from suckling.

    Breast_feeding?

    Bottle_feeding?


    Thanks in advance.

    Note the correct usage of breastfeeding and bottle-feeding.


    The word you are looking for is wean.
