Re: Extended breastfeeding and the benefits
I am glad to have read this. I didnt know about the benefits of breastfeeding past a year with my fist daughter. I thought you were supposed to try to go for a year and then you were supposed to stop. I never realized there were continued benefits and thought it was weird to do it longer so I stopped at 15 months to the dislike of my daughter. My second is 16 months now and i thought about trying to wean and looked into it and have found all this new info and am definitely now going to try for at least two years or just wait until she wants to stop. Anyhoo, keep up the good work getting the word out!
