Re: Getting ready to cross the one-year mark; need support!
From what I've seen (from non-breast feeding sources) it makes a lot of sense to me why recommendations should be 2 years as a minimum for breastfeeding. Cow's milk really isn't all that good an alternative before two years and can cause some pretty disturbing intestinal irritation.
Regardless of any of that, however, no one gets to tell you how to parent your child. If you and your daughter want to continue your nursing relationship, then continuing is the healthiest thing that you can do! My son is now 18 months and nursing has been an amazing mothering tool for me. I love it, and so does my son.
