My daughter is 9 and a half mths old and breastfed - i enjoy breastfeeding, and see no reason to stop at this stage. she has 3 solid meals a day and a few snacks, she also consumes lots of water each day and is a vibrant, active and healthy little girl.
If i go out, or have to work she is feed previously expressed and frozen breast milk, so she happily takes a bottle.
I am a big beliver in "Breast is Best" however alot of people keep asking me when i'm going to stop breast feeding......
i've heard of people breastfeeding until their children are 3 or 4 yrs old (i don't think i will go that far though!) but also of others fulling weaning from breastmilk/formula at 1 yr!
Is there an specific age when they get enough nutrients from solids (and their body can fully process the solids which they consume)? or is it just a personal preference by mothers?
What are your thoughts? when did you wean completely?
