I’m under pressure from my family to stop breastfeeding my two year old, how do I deal with that?
There is no age when toddlers should stop breastfeeding – it’s up to you and your child to decide. There are benefits to feeding older babies and toddlers, and it may help to talk to your family about these.
The World Health Organization recommends that infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life and after that, to meet their evolving nutritional requirements, infants should receive nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond.
