Re: Extended breastfeeding and the benefits
All 3 of my extended-breastfed babies would just drink sippy cups of water and nurse. Sometimes I will put almond milk in oatmeal or something like that, but that's about it. We don't drink much juice (besides homemade smoothies) but they drink it once in awhile. I haven't seen a need for any other milk than mine, even when they are down to only nursing a few times a day. However, human milk is really important for toddlers' brain growth especially through the 2nd year, so I try to nurse my toddlers to 2 years old or longer. Hope that helps!
