The child has already turned 1 year old, or even 2 or 3 years old, but he still hangs on his chest. Is this good or bad?
Myth 1. Milk after a year is useless for a baby
Indeed, it is no longer its main and main food, but this does not make it useless. Moreover, some substances that form immunity, on the contrary, are in greater concentration.
The World Health Organization believes that the longer breastfeeding continues, the better. Believe me, the child will not hang on the chest until school.
Myth 2. Long-term breastfeeding spoils a woman's health
If the mother is fully nourished, then breastfeeding specifically does not have a negative effect on her. She gets much more harm from stress and lack of sleep.
Myth 3. A child on GV does not become independent for a long time
Myth 4. Feeding as long as possible is advised only in poor countries
Breastfeeding helps build the baby's immunity. For poor countries, where there is no access to adequate food and clean water, this is especially important. But in other countries, too, because the child's immunity does not lose importance, wherever he lives.
