Breastfeeding - for how long?
Hi Helen

I would like to know for how long I should continue to breastfeed my daughter soon to be 10 months old (was born 1 month premature).

She eats solids and drinks well during the day, and I hardly breastfeed her at night anymore - however, she needs a breast feed every once in a while :o)

Can I continue to breastfeed her as long as her daily food intake is mainly from solids?

Regards Heidi
