    You do get bone loss during lactation. About 5% of your lumbar spine, for women feeding for more than 6 months as opposed to none for women who don't breastfeed. But after weaning there is an over compensation and all the bone loss is recovered and then some. So a breastfeeding woman ends up have about 5 % more bone than a non breastfeeding one.

    It is pretty dumb - I didn't know dummies & EBM counted too? Wow.

    Then I'm surprised the stats are as high as they are really.

    I don't think thats the definition

    To enable mothers to establish and sustain exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, WHO and UNICEF recommend:


    WHO/NHD
    Initiation of breastfeeding within the first hour of life
    Exclusive breastfeeding – that is the infant only receives breast milk without any additional food or drink, not even water
    Breastfeeding on demand – that is as often as the child wants, day and night
    No use of bottles, teats or pacifiers

    Sorry for the jumbled post but I think it just means infant only receives breast milk without any additional food or drink, not even water (as above) from here http://www.who.int/nutrition/topics/...astfeeding/en/


    Took the red pill.

    No dummies, expressed milk etc is what is called "ecological breastfeeding"

    Thanks PPs for all the info. I am just wondering if anybody has any info on how it affects the mother to feed to 2yo? Is there any negative affects?
    I am curious as I am almost 1year BF and I am really tired, I feel like feeding really takes it out of me sometimes. I am going to be weaning soon to ttc but maybe I would have continued otherwise.
    Thanks...

    Soccermum I was breastfeeding all 3 of my children until 6 months ago, I now only feed my youngest (3 yrs) and as long as my diet is good, and I make sure I get enough sleep, I am fine.

    Our bodies do adjust very well to lactation, and 2 years is by no means 'stretching it' I've been breastfeeding continuously for 8 years now.

    I think perhaps the only downside I can see is a psychological one really, getting 'over' it at times. I find it a fleeting feeling though.

    soccer mum I have felt the same at times (exclusive b/f for 10/11 months now) but I do find if I manage to rest more during the day (sleep when babe does) and make sure my diet is really clean, I feel great! Yes, we're designed to breastfeed, but I don't think we're designed to have the hectic lives we do now - to enjoy b/f, we need good support. We need to take care of ourselves just as well as we do when we're preggo, I reckon.

    Who's definition is this? It's certainly not my definition of ebf. I consider my 17mo son to be ebf. By that I mean he never had formula or cows milk or any other milk. He only drank breast milk, although sometimes he drank it out of a bottle when I was at work or somewhere else. He never had a dummy but he sucked his thumb occasionally (which I thought was sooo cute!) but even if he had a dummy I wouldn't consider that to mean he wasn't exclusively breast fed. He ate food from 6 months and drinks water but I still think he's my ebf baby!
