A study on one : large dose of 1.5 mg. says to resume nursing after 8 hours. It sounds like the party line in Australia is not to interrupt breastfeeding at all. I couldn't find studies on 2 dose of .75 mg. each, but one of our OB-GYN's probably knows.

No: If you want to breastfeed, don't stop breastfeeding. It is the best nourishment for a baby and also the cheapest! pick an age when you would like to stop and then make a plan.

Up to you.: There is no medical reason to stop breastfeeding at any age; i've been asked if there is a reason to wean a school age child, and the only one i could think of was that other children would laugh at him. Your own considerations -- job, lifestyle, other children -- usually dictate this decision. Having said that, benefits of nursing become rather small after the age of 12 months.

I feel that if you become pregnant again, you should stop.

The most common norm is - exclusive breast feeding until 6 month of age. The breast milk with other weaning food too. You can start potentially weaning him off breast milk by about 1 year of age as his caloric intake will be met by regular food then.

Six to twelve months: The major benefits of breast feeding occur in the first six months of live and relate to the baby's developing immune system and the potential for food allergy. The closeness of nursing can be beneficial up to the age of one at which time to babies start to separate.

They can be: It is common for it to take several months for periods to normalize during or after breastfeeding. Note that this does not mean that you are not ovulating and that it is still possible to get pregnant while your periods are irregular.
