    only you can, don't your breast belong to you.  How does he breast feed, if you're not giving it to him.

    Six weeks is the minimum recommended time - you've past that and given him a good start. A year is better than six months but if you're ready to stop, then YES. He'll be perfectly fine. There are lots of ways to go about it, you have to find out what works best for the two of you. Be prepared for him not to be too excited though :-)

    experts say that babies are advised to be fed with breastmilk until 2 yrs. it's up to you though, as you can now mix-feed him with commercially prepared milk too.
