Re: Toddler Breastfeeding

I keep hearing people say that the baby "needs" the fat in cow's milk for healthy brain development. I can't help but think that the human race wouldn't have survived or advanced the way that it has if we needed cow's milk for healthy brain development. It isn't like people out there who have never had cow's milk have trouble learning. My DS is still nursing at almost 18 months, more frequently than I would like him to (to be honest). He drinks water, diluted juice, and sometimes has some cow's milk. I do my best to offer him variety of healthy options and then let him lead the way. If you DS is willing to take the supplement, I don't think that can hurt. I take a multi-vitamin and fish oil supplements myself for back-up.

But if she isn't having breastmilk, she'll drink soy milk or water.

Re: Toddler Breastfeeding

My son gets diluted juice, water and bm in a bottle, sippy cup or through nursing.

I don't think they need cows milk but for variety it could be nice and the vitamins are probably not necessary.

I would just do what feels right.
