Unfortunately, this has become something that Western society thinks is abnormal.

But why? It really makes no sense why some people think that the same milk that at one point provided all of your baby’s needs, no longer has a value as a child grows into a toddler.

Whether they like it or not, breast milk contains valuable vitamins, calcium and antibodies for as long as it is produced and is actually more "normal" than you might think! In fact, in most of the world’s cultures, breast feeding continues for at least 2 years.

The World Health Organization (WHO)would also agree with a mother’s decision to continue to breastfeed a toddler. It recommends that new mothers breastfeed their children from birth until two years…and then as long as mutually desired by mommy and child.

Even though many moms don’t talk about it, breastfeeding toddlers is not a new idea at all. Mothers have continued to feed their babies this way for centuries and new scientific research shows it is an excellent choice for both mommies and their children.

While I will agree that it is not for every mom, there should also be no rush to wean based on someone else’s pre-determined schedule.

Do what feels right to you. Each mom is different and each child is different…and only the two of you really know when it is best to stop.
