betterhealth vic gov website extended feeding / tandem

The web site www.betterhealth.vic.gov has a section Breastfeeding - deciding when to stop I was quite pleased to see the vic government encourage women to breastfeed for as long as they wanted . Below is an extract from the section


Breastfeeding while pregnant
Producing milk places additional demands on the mother's body. If you are breastfeeding and become pregnant, you may choose to continue to feed or you may like to gradually wean your baby. This is an individual choice. If you choose to continue breastfeeding, it is important to maintain a healthy diet. Seek advice from the Australian Breastfeeding Association or your Maternal and Child Health nurse.

Extended breastfeeding
Some mothers and babies enjoy breastfeeding so much they are in no hurry to stop. Family members and friends may feel uncomfortable about it, but don't give in to pressure if you and your child are happy. It is not unusual for children up to four years to continue to be breastfed. .
