Breastfeeding is great for the baby and the toddler. I should know. I have breastfed both my baby and toddler. What are the benefits for the older child? He still receives the antibodies to ward off infections. My husband got sick around Christmas, but no one else really got sick. Both nursing babies were well. I believe this is because of mama’s breastmilk…after all breast is best!
So, I really believe that breastmilk should be given as long as possible to a child. It helps them when they need it and sometimes it just helps them when they have a “boo-boo.” I want to hear about other moms who breastfeed. Let me know and I’ll post something about your experiences. Thank you.
