I went to my local LLL meeting a while ago (can't go regularly as I work on the day it's on ) - the Leader mentioned the number of calories a 2 year old (I think) should ideally get from breastmilk. She then compared this to the number of mamas who still feed at that age.
I seem to recall it as 40% of calories from breastmilk, vs 0.?% of mamas who do - looking at it now I think I must have misheard
I really hope to feed my little one until he is 3, and know I will come up against questions from friends and family members. Arming myself with the facts now seems sensible. Plus, I seem to have become a little militant about breastfeeding and am eating up facts!
If anyone knows these stats I'd appreciate it!
