Experts agree that motherhood is even more difficult now than it was for past generations of Mums, with nearly one in three Mums consciously make parenting decisions to avoid criticism from others — Doctor Michele Borba
Two weeks ago marked a milestone in my relationship with my toddler Son. After 26 months since Miles Storm was born, back in September of 2010, WE have finally stopped breastfeeding!
I was beginning to wonder if this day would ever come, and surely my husband made a ton of jokes, that I would be one of those Mums who would be breastfeeding until he was at least 6 years old. Ha Ha – really funny Babes!
I never thought that I would still be breastfeeding my 22 month old Son, but I am. Years ago, I actually thought that I would never breastfeed at all as I worried about what it would do to my body, selfish yes I know. It was easy to say then as I really had no idea of the differences in cow milk formula and breast milk. I am not a big fan of cow’s milk, and my Son actually cannot drink or eat cow products as he breaks out in the skin condition eczema.
