Welcome to MDC.  Congratulations on 14 months of nursing your baby.  That is a wonderful gift you have given your baby.

 

You should continue to nurse your little one as long as it is mutually desired by both of you.  There is no arbitrary age cut off for the benefits of breastfeeding.

Welcome to MDC and congratulations for nursing you little one!!  As Flower of Bliss says as long as you both want to.

 

Just in case, let us know if you need any concrete information or you could look up the WHO recommendations  or LLL website for toddler nursing.

 

Congratulations again!!
