I know how extremely difficult pumping and ED can be!!!

I watched a video on You Tube today about a mama (somewhere in the UK I think) who was still breastfeeding her 8 year old and 5 year old. It was from some sort of documentary titled "Extraordinary Breastfeeding".. It was really interesting to listen to her views on extended BF.
Yeah, I saw that You Tube video - I thought it was very interesting to see what the girls thought of bf as they were much older and so articulate! I think to me anyways that 8 is too old, but who knows, I might be there one day!
Happy New Year!
