I was trying to find where the AAP says that babies should be exclusively breastfed until 6 months.

As far I know the 2005 policy is the most recent one to date though I believe I heard they are planing to release an updated policy soon but I'm not 100% sure of that.

I think that's the most recent release, but in case you're looking for something else, you may want to check some of these links.

Be cautious about that. The Committee on Nutrition is different than the Section on Breastfeeding, and their recommendations do not always agree. There's a current issue with some recommendations (may be the ones that your doc was talking about) that have caused a debate in the Section on Breastfeeding and some angst over why they were not shared and discussed with them before being finalized.
