I wanted to touch on the subject of "extended breastfeeding", as it's often referred to when done past baby's 1st year. Too often I get dirty looks and snide comments, even from friends and family, regarding breastfeeding my 2 year old daughter. It's often, disturbingly, regarded as mother-obsessive, and bad for the independence of the child. That could not be further from the truth! Breastfeeding your child past 2 years is incredibly healthy, both physically and psychologically, for both the mother and the baby. Please don't take my word for it, just google it. Moreover, the World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for children to 2 years and beyond. It's been an incredibly bonding and beautiful experience, and it goes way beyond giving them milk. I will not be breastfeeding her forever, but for the short time that it's beneficial to her, and possible to me, we will continue. Stop judging, and educate yourselves. And love! #lactivist #motherofdragons #breastfeeding photo by @gulphoto #normalizebreastfeeding #mothersmilk #naturalmom
