Almost all pediatricians and specialists of the field argue that breastfeeding should be at least up to a year.According to the WHO, it is desirable to extend the time to two years.But do not look at the calendar and focus on someone else's advice.Every kid is different, for some weaning from breastfeeding is easy, at the age of one and a half years, others will be able to safely move it only in 3-4 years.One of the main boards of advisers in the HS and child psychologists - not to hurry with this process.
