studies show that kids who are breastfed for longer than 9 months, have higher IQ's than baby's who were not breastfed at all, or only breastfed for a lil while. Now, I'm not translating this into bottle fed babies are not smart.....i know some mom's might misinterpret that. There are MANY benefits ti breastfeeding for over 9 months, including a better immune system. I breastfed for 2 years. Loved every minute of it.

The WHO recommends breastfeeding for at least 2yrs. so I do think that is ideal. As for bottles and pacis past 18mos. it is no big deal to me for the most part. If it is interfering w/ their appetite for other foods, causing problems with their speech and/or teeth then I do think they should be limited or eliminated. If parents are putting soda, kool aid, etc. in the bottle then obviously that is not going to be good for the child either. Otherwise, I don't care it is up to the parent and child to decide when to give them up.
