Here’s the American Academy of Family Physicians position on how long a child should be breast-fed. Seems perfectly logical to me.
“As recommended by the WHO, breastfeeding should ideally continue beyond infancy, but this is not the cultural norm in the United States and requires ongoing support and encouragement.69 It has been estimated that a natural weaning age for humans is between two and seven years.70 Family physicians should be knowledgeable regarding the ongoing benefits to the child of extended breastfeeding, including continued immune protection,71 better social adjustment,72 and having a sustainable food source in times of emergency. The longer women breastfeed, the greater the decrease in their risk of breast cancer.73”
That’s almost word for word what CD is going to get when he/she contacts the AAP. That’s provided that CD is honest enough to mea culpa and admit that he/she did indeed completely misrepresent the organization. I’m skeptical, but hopeful.
