Is Long-term breastfeeding still a taboo for mother’s?:

July 10, 2018 1 min read

Every mother knows the struggle of listening to friends or family members throwing their statements of “you should really stop breastfeeding now” or “Isn’t this bad for your child at this point?”.We’ve heard it all.If a mother and child are both comfortable with breastfeeding and seem to have no problems,then why should she stop?

Many studies recommend to breastfeeding for up to 2 years if possible.Yet some mothers choose not to stop breastfeeding early and average stop around 6-7 months.How long a mother wants to breastfeed her child is completely up to her,but to be safe you should breastfeed for at least 5-6 months.From there you can always decide whether you want to continue or stop.

The real question is,does long-term breastfeeding benefit my child more than children that are breastfeed for only 6 months?Well,this all depends on the child itself as well as the mother.It depends on how healthy the mother’s diet was during pregnancy and how a mother’s diet is when she breastfeeds for longer time.It is not very easy to have a clean diet filled with vitamins and minerals for a very long time such as 2 years,This is why many mothers decide to do the minimum and eat slightly healthy which benefits the child a lot as well.

Breast Milk is the most natural way of feeding your child.How long you decide on breastfeeding your child and being able to maintain a healthy lifestyle as well as a healthy diet is completely up to you.

Love it!!

I really like loulouka stage 1 formula!I supplement it along with breastfeeding and I can feel good about what I'm feeding my baby

Holle Goats milk formula is top notch!

My 2 month old has really loved this formula. She is my 5th baby and I’ve never needed to supplement before! Her belly seemed sensitive so some friends recommended the goats milk version and she’s done awesome with it so far. The delivery was quick and the product has been great! Thank you!

Still Love This Formula

We’ve been using this fore about three months now, no issues. My daughter seems to love the formula.

Delicious and Healthy

I bought this formula because it's the only one on the market that's whole milk and gets nutrients for baby from the cream of the milk instead of through processed oils like those found in skimmed milk formulas.

Better ingredients and no smell.

I feed my daughter mostly breastmilk, but supplement with formula. I was so unhappy with the ingredients in what was offered at our local grocery store, not to mention the way the formula smells. Our whole family has a milk allergy, so it was no surprise that our Gabi does too. She just started her second box and I've also noticed her gas has decreased significantly.
