6 months: The american academy of pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life. You can continue to breast feed as long as you and your baby want to. If you do stop breast milk before one year, be sure to use an approved infant formula as replacement.

6 months: Ideally, a nursing infant should be exclusively breastfed for 6 months. However the aap guidelines call for introducing solids between 4-6 months, depending on the child's readiness for table foods.
