Mom and baby factors
We recommend exclusive breastfeeding
the first 6 month, br feed + solids x 12 months.
Br feed may continue longer if desired by mom and baby. It's common to nurse parttime through the 2nd year. If baby loses interest, you're tired of it, it's ok to quit; but talk with your dr if you're having problems or if society is pressuring you to quit. It's a personal decision between you and baby.
