Re: Amount of milk/dairy with extended breastfeeding
We offered my son kefir and other cultured milk products, particularly strained yogurt, after he was a bit older--closer to 18+mo. Cheese was also offered. We offered these because they're part of *our* diets. I never introduced cups of milk as he breastfed 3-5x/day (generally quite a bit more than that) until nearly his fourth birthday (he slowed down that last month, but did nurse the week of his birthday). There was simply no need to give him milk.
He occasionally has cocoa as a treat these days.
DD is sensitive to cow's milk in my milk, so I'm off dairy and have no plans to introduce it to her for quite awhile yet.
