Health professionals recommend that you continue to breastfeed your baby for at least the first 12 months after birth.

There are benefits for you the mother as well, breastfeeding may help protect you from: high blood pressure, ovarian and breast cancer and type 2 diabetes.
Breast milk doesn't usually have an adequate supply of iron or vitamin D, so when breastfeeding your baby, he or she will need a supplement. Iron helps your baby's brain develop and vitamin D will encourage the growth of healthy bones. Your baby should be getting vitamin D supplements within the first few days of life and continuing, after 1 year of age, until he or she gets enough vitamin D-fortified formula or milk.
If you are not sure if your baby is getting enough milk, pay attention to how she or he seems satisfied, and also your baby should be producing about six to eight wet nappies a day. Also, your baby should be having regular bowel movements, is alert when awake, sleeps really well and is gaining weight. If your baby is crying, seems hungry, and does not appear content after breastfeeding, then your baby is not getting enough milk or food. If you have concerns, then always consult a qualified medical practitioner.
