The World Health Organization recommends a minimum of six months of exclusive breastfeeding.
Ideally, they say, "Infants should receive nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond."

Did you nurse? And if so, how long did you last?
