BREAST IS STILL BEST

Grazia (UK) - - Now Over To You... -

Thank you for your pos­i­tive ar­ti­cle ‘I never imag­ined I’d breast­feed for four years’ (27 Aug). Like Ta­mara, I didn’t in­tend to breast­feed for longer than a year, but I’m still feed­ing my al­most three-year-old! Sadly, the older my son has grown, the more neg­a­tiv­ity I’ve re­ceived. Women’s bod­ies are sex­u­alised so much in our so­ci­ety that many peo­ple can’t seem to un­der­stand breasts be­ing used as some­thing other than ob­jects of en­ter­tain­ment for men. It is nat­u­ral for some tod­dlers to want to carry on nurs­ing past in­fancy and, though it’s drain­ing at times, it has many ben­e­fits. Chloe
