The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding until AT LEAST 1 year. The World Health Organization recommends AT LEAST 2 years.

Breastfeeding is NOT sexual abuse. It is feeding a child.

Breast milk is a healthy food. Our society often frowns on women breastfeeding past 6 months or a year. This is wrong. The natural age for a child to stop breastfeeding of their own accord is around 2 to 7 years old, without being forced to wean prematurely.
