While some nosy Nellies may raise an eyebrow if they spy you nursing your toddler, there’s a lot of official support for extended breastfeeding — which means breastfeeding a toddler past age one.

And both the World Health Organization and UNICEF take it a step further by recommending that babies be breastfed for two years or more.
