Until when is it recommended to give my baby breast milk?
The international recommendation is that you give your baby exclusive breast milk (that is, without water, drinks or any other food) during the first 6 months of life, as this becomes a sufficient and complete food that meets all the nutritional requirements of your baby.
After this time, breastfeeding continues to be essential, however, it is necessary to introduce other adequate and sufficient foods to complement it.
The decision to continue breastfeeding until 2 years of life is yours and your baby's!
Remember that breast milk, even after your baby's first year, continues to retain its nutritional and immunological properties . From the first year, you can hear comments against breastfeeding such as "it is no longer useful" or "it is pure water", even so, it is still an important and beneficial food for your baby that will also allow you to continue strengthening the emotional bond .
