Sharon Spink works as a breastfeeding consultant, and one of her main recommendations to young mothers is to stop feeding only at the voluntary request of the child.

Sharon is sure that breast milk helps strengthen the immune system, and the feeding process itself strengthens the bond between mother and baby. Or not quite a baby, as happened in the case of Sharon herself.

The thing is that the woman breastfed her youngest daughter (and Sharon has four offspring in total) until she was 9 years old, and she herself did not refuse it.

Neither the mother nor the girl see anything shameful in this. According to Sharon herself, her daughter Charlotte is in good health, rarely suffers from colds, and also surpasses many children in mental abilities. In this, according to the woman, there is a merit of prolonged breastfeeding. As well as the fact that a special indissoluble bond was formed between her and her daughter.

Sharon also said that she never forced her daughter to eat breast milk and in the same way did not force her to give it up.

According to Sharon, after that their relationship with their daughter did not change in any way. They're still best friends.

The woman said that she had never been shy about feeding Charlotte in public places, including a church, a shop or a hairdresser. But in recent years, the girl drank milk only at home and did it, as a rule, no more than once a month.

Charlotte says that she fed her first two children for only a few weeks, and her third daughter Isabel for about six months.

Then the woman decided that the next child would be fed until he himself refused to breastfeed, as happened in the case of Charlotte. Sharon is sure that every mother and child should feel for themselves when it's time to stop breastfeeding, but at the same time it is necessary to "hold out" for at least six months.

The World Health Organization has established six months as the minimum recommended period for breastfeeding a child. In the future, it can be increased to two or more years, subject to the introduction of additional power. Sharon says that initially her plans were to feed the girl up to a maximum of 2 years, but then they decided to go further.
