EXTENDED BREASTFEEDING

Both my children, who were exclusively breastfed, weaned at around the age of 2. They both weaned for completely different reasons and the transition for them was smooth and easy.

This was NOT how I thought things were going to go with my 2nd child. I felt that we were going to be nursing until she was much older and I would have been testing my boundaries and comfort levels with extended breastfeeding.

This mom is absolutely beautiful and her facebook page is alive with discussion about extended breastfeeding. I did not see many negative comments so forgive me if you come across any. She is open to questions and discussion and seems to be able to diffuse any tension!

I’d also like to note that the average of of weaning worldwide is 4.2 years of age and that the WHO states that babes should be breastfed for at least two years.
