Now I am not trying to be controversial or anything like that so please dont flame me! I am asking a genuine question that is now more relevant to me as I am BFing my daughter.
So I understand from all the posts on here that WHO recommends BFing until 2 years of age. What I would like to understand is is it relevant for countries where children have access to good food, clean water, etc and get all their nutrition from food to continue to BF until 2?
What extra stuff do they get from BF that they wouldnt already be getting from their daily food intake?
I can understand where food isnt plentiful and water isnt clean in countries that BFing for as long as possible would be a necessity but why for us?
Can someone please clarify for me?
(again not being silly or mean or controversial....I just want to understand!)
