Stopping breastfeeding

When can I stop breastfeeding my baby? Is there a minimum time period to follow or baby will not get the benefits of breast milk?

If your body allows, Best to breastfeed exclusive until baby turns 6 months old. Then slowly wean off. It would be great if you continue breastfeed for more than 6 months. For me, breastfeeding timing is the best bonding time for both of us! The moment when the baby looks at you is sooo precious.

I think recommended is minimum 6months of breastfeeding, but I think no matter for how long, as long as got feed breast milk baby will definitely get the benefits. ☺️

Minimum exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months as per who standard and then extended breastfeeding for as long as you can (2-4 years)

Just give up when you think you cannot take it. There is no hard and fast rule
