– So in terms of how long
you should breastfeed your child for, the recommendation is to provide breast milk for a year. For the first six months,
you’re just providing exclusive breast milk, ideally, and then after that
you start adding solids and then after a year, if you
choose to start introducing things like cow’s milk, that’s okay. But the recommendation is up to a year. However, it is a personal choice, so as long as you can
provide breast milk for or even partially providing breast milk is a wonderful thing for your child.
