Breastfeeding is the normal, unequaled way to feed your child. Babies need just your milk for the first six months. Breastfeeding for up to two years or longer is healthy for children and is encouraged.
The longer you breastfeed, the greater the health benefits for you and your child. This is why breastfeeding for as long as possible is recommended. Regardless of the length of time you nurse your child, it is better to breastfeed for a short time than not at all.
