Extended Breastfeeding – Is It Beneficial?

Committing to breastfeeding is a crucial job in a mother’s life. While there are many advantages of breastfeeding, providing vital nutrients required to protect a child from illness is one of them. The act of breastfeeding your baby beyond a year is considered extended breastfeeding. This includes breastfeeding a toddler in the age of 2-4 years. If a woman can produce the milk required for their baby, they can always opt for extended breastfeeding. Watch this video to understand the benefits of extended breastfeeding.

Apart from preventing illnesses, prolonged breastfeeding has been proven to increase the IQ and EQ levels of a toddler, thereby stimulating mental growth and development. Studies have shown that mothers feel more content by breastfeeding without worry and help feel a strong connection to their baby. In the end, it is your prerogative if you want to extend breastfeeding, and it should be done based on what you feel is right.
