do you have to feed other types of milk if I am going to continue to breastfeed until he weans himself? My son will be 1 april 21st, I don't want people to tell me I have to feed my baby other milk like cows milk or something. I want to continue to breastfeed as long as possible.

Then breastfeed only. You dont ever have to give your kid anything you dont want to. Breastmilk is just fine.

I gave my son almond milk, small amounts of cows milk, and mostly breastfed.

I have given my daughter whole milk, muscle milk, and silk. But I always breast feed as well. She loves water and v8 juice too. I expose her to different flavors ect so when she is weaned I won't have a picky little tot. Lol. (ei. She's 15months )

No. Breastmilk is great. Cow's milk causes problems for lots of kids and is completely unnecessary if you're still breastfeeding.
