If you're enjoying breastfeeding, you can continue for as long as you and your baby want to. That could mean until she's a year or two or beyond. There's no need to stop before you're both ready. Before having a baby, most women have an idea of how long they aim to breastfeed their baby for, but this can change as you go along.
There is no right or wrong way to stop breastfeeding. For lots of mothers and babies, stopping breastfeeding happens gradually as the child grows and eats more solid foods.

"I never imagined breastfeeding a toddler. Breastfeeding is not always easy but the support from my husband and my workplace, has made this is all possible."
