We know that breastfeeding your baby has an abundance of benefits including increasing your baby’s immunity, reduced ear infections, lower risk for asthma, lower chance of developing type 1 and type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol later in life and much more. Bottom line – it’s good for your baby.


However, there has long been a debate about how long an infant should be breastfed for. While many experts agree that the ideal time-frame is around six to eight months, a new study has found that babies who are breastfed for at least twelve months tend to have a higher IQ.

Thanks for this, has just encouraged me to stick to it for the last 3 months. I originally planned on bf for 12 months, but lately have been wondering why and was considering giving it up, after 9 months. Not now!!
