Blessed day all!
I am going to talk to you guys about a topic that is near and dear to me, many of may not know but I breastfed my son up until about two months before he turned two it was the hardest most rewarding thing Ive done for many reasons. We can start out with the fact that it is painful, very painful at first and then you get used to it but for me it was also very hard because I have never been a fan of my breasts or nipples being touched so before I had him I would have constant thoughts about the situation I decided to breastfeed because it is the best thing for them health wise it builds up a great immune system helps with their digestion and also for you as a woman can help lower your risks for ovarian cancer helps you lose the baby weight and I know that we can all get down with the fact that it is cost effective lol Now I received a lot of flack from strangers and family members for how long I breastfed I heard a lot of once they can ask for it you should stop or that’s a grown boy on your titties my response was always ” If I know it is the best thing for him why wouldn’t I do it up until that point?” They never really had much to say after that but at the end of the day it as really my discretion how I wanted to handle that with MY child. The bond that is built with breastfeeding is not something I can really put in to words but it is definitely the rewarding part, there is something about knowing that you are nourishing your child and genuinely providing the best for them that is so deep and sacred I get why a lot of mothers would want to continue well into toddler years. I am not sure how I feel about that I guess to each their own but what are your thoughts?
