There’s no need to stop breastfeeding before you’re both ready.
Breastfeeding beyond the first year of a child’s life is sometimes called ‘extended or long-term nursing’. Many women continue to feed their baby beyond a year.
Breastfeeding still has lots of benefits for you and your baby after six months. The World Health Organisation recommends that all babies are breastfed for up to two years or longer.
Your breastmilk will still be the main source of between six months and a year while introducing solids.
