  Title The optimal duration for exclusive breastfeeding for physical growth [review]
Journal Nutr Perspect. 2015 Oct;38(4):21-22, 24-30, 32-33
Peer Review No
Publication Type Review

Breastfeeding an infant is commonplace in many parts of the world, and is widely acknowledged as being the best form of nutrition for babies. However, the optimal duration of exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) serves as a topic of controversy. This debate has stemmed from what was has been previously described as the "weanings dilemma" by Rowland et. al. The "weanings dilemma" is thought to be the result of breast milk by itself being inadequate nutritionally for an infant beyond the age of 3 or 4 months. The other factor considered into the "weanings dilemma" is that the foods typically given to weanlings in a lot of [underdeveloped] countries are not sufficient nutritionally, and are contaminated.
