… but not for three or more years.
I breastfed all four of my children and agree that is a wonderful thing. Newborns receive great nutritional value, antibodies, and more from breast feeding.
not only do we begin the mirroring of neurotransmitters and create vital brain connections, but we also form the bond between mother and child hormonally. We engage our babies in the senses of touch and love, while proving them with a nutritional meal.
Everything about breastfeeding was wonderful for me. I felt empowered, the idea that I, alone, could provide for my child was a tremendous feeling!
Not only does the baby benefit, but the new mom benefits as well. The uterus contracts back down to its pre-pregnancy size more quickly, postpartum bleeding diminishes more quickly, and…. many moms loose the ‘baby fat’ more quickly.
….but, there comes a time when every ‘animal’ has to wean their young, imagine if a child was walking around with a bottle at 6, that would be asinine or silly, so why would it not be silly to see one at the age of 3 or 6 breastfeeding?
Some things in this world are just asinine…..
