Re: Extended breastfeeding and the benefits
I was only able to bf my eldest son for 15 months, before he caught Hand Foot and Mouth from a friend who went to daycare. It was fine for me until the blisters covered my aeriolas (sp?) without my attention. He latched on, and tore the blisters open. It was over after that. He had nearly weaned himself before that, and he only asked twice after that, but I still had hoped it would be longer. I'm trying to convince some friends of mine to go past 6 weeks, but they seem so selfish about not wanting the baby to have their boobs. What is that about, and how can I encourage them?
