Toddler Nursing

Update: 2021-02-151


Are you breastfeeding a toddler?

Are you breastfeeding a newborn wondering how you possibly breastfeed a toddler?

Has someone told you to “stop breastfeeding when they can ask for it”

Breastfeeding a toddler is very different from breastfeeding a newborn.  Listen up for more info on this.  And spoiler alert – babies ask to breastfeed the minute they come out of the womb so that’s not a valid argument.
