Handling criticism about breastfeeding

I've had a couple people question why I'm still nursing Ivy "even though she's 1" now.
My answer is "the World Health Organization recommends BFing until the baby is 2 and since they are the experts it's their advice I'm going to follow." That has ended the conversation every single time, including with my psychiatrist who wanted me to wean so I could be put back on my regular medications. When someone questions me, I answer in a way that doesn't leave any room for argument. My decision is made and they won't get anywhere trying to get me to change my mind.
