In brief: A mother and her bab
Should breastfeed for as long as they wish to breastfeed.
The american academy of pediatrics currently (2005) recommends: "pediatricians and parents should be aware that exclusive breastfeeding is sufficient to support optimal growth and development for approximately the first 6 months of life and provides continuing protection against diarrhea and respiratory tract infection.At least one year.
