  • Formula for a year; breast milk not really sure. I think as long as you want, but at least first year.

  • The US recommends one year, but internationally 2 years is recommended. We are just odd about breastfeeding! Lol!

  • Minimum one year. You can go off formula at one year. You can continue breastfeeding as long as you and baby want.

  • The minimum for formula is one year, for breast milk the opinions vary but the minimum should be a year but ideal is two years.
