How long should I breastfeed my baby?It is best to breastfeed for as long as possible, at least for one year. During the first 6 months, give your baby nothing but breast milk.
If a nursing mother becomes pregnant, she can continue to breastfeed. Since breastfeeding and pregnancy take a lot from her own body, she should eat plenty of good foods.
It is also safe to continue breastfeeding an older child when a woman has a new baby. The new baby should be fed before the older child.
