I have a four month old and BF is going very well. She's 24 inches and 18.5 pounds (my not-so-little bundle of joy!)
I am aware of the benefits of BF and am wondering if there is any benefit to EBF beyond the 6 months. How long is ideal? Are there studies looking at the optimum EBF period? Would my baby be happy/healthy to EBF for, say, 24 months? Or is it wrong to deny her solids when she starts to develop an interest?
