Hi, in currently bf my 19 month DS and 8 week DD. They’ve always been ebf on demand. They are both strapping, thriving children. Neither my siblings nor I were bf (im 39 and the youngest in my family). I’m very pro-bf and support/promote it where I can, especially as we have such poor rates of bf in the uk. I want my children to continue their bf journey as long as they want to, I think it’s important that they make the decision to wean. I will be sad when they do as I love nurturing them in this way, but bf side, I will nurture them forever.
