Little has been more than 2 years but there are no signs of stopping breastfeeding. Mother is increasingly restless, because some say the longer breastfeeding, then she will be more difficult to be weaned and spoiled. If Mother is currently confused how to wean the Little one who has been 2 years, Mother can calm down. Actually there are various benefits of giving ASI after more than this age.
In some other countries, breastfeeding for more than a year is considered as extended breastfeeding. In Indonesia, breastfeeding for more than 2 years is generally only included as extended breastfeeding. However, there are also some countries that have the habit of a new child stopping breastfeeding at the age of 3-4 years. Unlike people assume, forcing children to stop breastfeeding or weaning when they are not ready, does not mean it will make it a more independent and confident child, you know, Mother. In addition, extended breastfeeding also actually will not make children more difficult to wean.
The benefits of breastfeeding are not only for children, but also for breastfeeding benefits for mothers. Here are some benefits of breastfeeding for Mother and Child:
Breastfeeding provides nutrition to maintain and increase endurance, soothe children and mothers, reduce the risk of cancer in the mother, so it is not a problem for mothers to breastfeed their babies at this age but instead provides many benefits for mothers and children. There are some tips on breastfeeding comfortably: if the mother is again outside the mother can breastfeed a child in a breastfeeding facility in various public places, the mother can also get around this by breastfeeding it at home before traveling. If he still wants to suckle in public places, Mother can distract him with snacks or other objects that he likes.
So you don't need to be confused anymore or rush to wean your baby after 2 years old, Mother. Many benefits can be obtained from extended breastfeeding. If necessary, consult a pediatrician, or take advantage of lactation consultation services for appropriate advice according to your child's condition.
Thus the info I can give
Hope you can help, Mother
