Breastfeeding Resources, Extended Breastfeeding, and Lactivism

I have become a passionate breastfeeding advocate after my experience with breastfeeding has been so wonderful and educational.

I don’t regret one minute of breastfeeding him past the recommended 2 years — I was able to provide nourishment and comfort to my son, and we both benefited from the many health benefits kids and moms enjoy from extended breastfeeding.

Here are all my posts about breastfeeding, extended breastfeeding, and lactivism.
