so angry at WHO

They have changed their breastfeeding recommendation! When my twins were around 1 I researched extended breastfeeding and they recommended AT LEAST 2 years, that was 2 years ago. Now they recommend UP TO 2 years and beyond. Anyone else see the difference?!?!? Now extended breastfeeders in the US are going to get even more pressure. My twins will be 3 in October and my husband has wanted me to wean. If he found this out he would really start pressuring me. Stupid American doctors; you know that has to be who pressured them to change their recommendation. It's not like anything has changed in the last 2 years! ARGHHHH!
