Breastfeeding a child for three days is good. Breastfeeding a child through infancy is awesome. But breastfeeding into childhood and allowing your child to lead you to the stopping point is the greatest gesture you can make to provide health and well-being for your family. No weaning battles . . . no allergic reactions to cow’s milk . . . no feeling guilty for having stopped nursing too early . . . just a healthy, happy child, who has fond memories of nursing and a body packed full of immunities from it.
