Pressure to breast-feed your baby - all hype?

Is breast feeding best for babies? Perhaps. But for how long should you do it? Opinions vary. I've met some women who did so for extended periods (up to and more than 12 months). According to them they felt pressured to continue doing so long past the point they felt it was really necessary.

Have breast feeding "activists" gone too far? Something to think about during "International Breast Feeding Week".
