27 Jun How long do I have to breastfeed my baby?

If possible, try to give your baby nothing but breast milk until she is six months old. Exclusive breastfeeding will give her the best possible healthy start in life!

When your baby is ready to start solid food at six months, you can still carry on breastfeeding or switch to formula. Many mothers choose to continue breastfeeding until their babies are two years old.

How long you keep breastfeeding is a very personal decision. It will depend on how you feel emotionally and physically and how ready you and your baby are to continue. Do whatever makes you happy and comfortable!
