Last week, we were asked to contribute to a piece Us Weekly was putting together about celebrities and breastfeeding, inspired by Gwen Stefani telling Elle that she is continuing to nurse Kingston, almost 8 months.
There is a small correction to be made – Jada Pinkett Smith actually nursed Jaden for 18 months, not 24, but the issue had gone to press before the article could be edited. Also, the AAP recommends breastfeeding exclusively for 6 months (that is, no formula or solids) and at least until 1 year. You can click this scan to make it larger and more readable.
How long did you breastfeed your children?
