During pregnancy, I planned to feed until the moment when
the son himself will give up his chest. Now I think differently: I will continue
up to two years, but we’ll see. I do not understand why many are against
of this: breastfeeding makes life easier!
I often sit on different sites, chatting with other girls.
I feel sorry for mummies who put their baby to bed for a long time. Thats

fairy tale, and then give the chest. After that, he is usually calm

breast milk, but strangers try not to talk about it.
Daughter did not wean off until the last: she was almost 2.5 years old,

It annoys me when others impose their views and

Polina, Nastya’s mother (1 year)
