Breast feeding beyond 12 months

This is my first child and I don't know any one who has breast fed before. So as we come close to a year, I'm trying to figure what happens next. I've heard of only breast feeding at night. Or reducing feedings. How do you do that and keep up supply or not get uncomfortable? I'd appreciate if people could share their experiences.

    My youngest is 17 months old and still breastfeeding whenever she wants. I see no reason to stop both her and I still get benefits from breastfeeding. It make her happy and we have a wonderful bond. There is no reason to stop at 12 months. The AAP recommends breastfeeding for two years. I suggest you do what feels right for you and your baby.

      There are many people who breastfeed beyond 12 months... it is beneficial for baby to BF as long as possible! And as Katie pointed out the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) recommends BF for two years. They have some great resources on their website ... here is the link:

      I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
