Can you squeeze your breastfeeding story in a mere 100 words? That's the challenge Amber McCan from Nourish poses. So here goes
I never considered breastfeeding a toddler before having my daughter, let alone tandem nursing. At the time, nursing for 6 months even seemed quite a stretch. When my daughter was born ,I got the advice to breastfeed for a year. Yet after that year, I had learned more and decided to go at least to two. Then I read some more and I knew that - for us - there was no other way but child led weaning. So now I am still happily nursing a three year old, and excited that in a few months she might be sharing mommy’s milk.
