Sadly, in the US, nursing a baby for over a year is year and to reach the WHO recommendations of nursing for at least two years in very rare. Only 35.3% of babies in the US are still nursing at all at one year of age. The Healthy People 2030 goal is to reach 54.1%. This is a lofty goal! In order to help families reach these goals lactation professionals need to be able to help families overcome the challenges that are unique to older babies. This presentation will discuss perceptions of older babies who are nursing, the benefits of nursing an older baby, introducing solids, nursing while pregnant and tandem feeding, and options for weaning an older baby.
