I just wanted to share this lovely and intelligent response from Chaley Scott regarding the article in the Daily Mail today ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2146870/Breastfeed-year-old-Thats-just-selfish-wrong.html) written by a medical doctor (can you believe it?) on extended breastfeeding. 

I have a lot more to say about breastfeeding, but that is for another time!  Personally, I fed my first sweet babe until 20 months and then gave in to the pressure to stop.  At present I am still breastfeeding my second lovely babe and she will be three in September! 

Chaley Scott notes that she finds it “scary that our medical profession are so ill-informed” (specifically regarding breastfeeding). I happen to agree, and on far more than just breastfeeding issues! (don’t even get me started on nutrition!)

Have a read and let me know what you think.
