Breastfeeding Story: Not Luck, but Hard Work
My name is Matluba. I am the mother of three children, and I have experience of continuous breastfeeding from 2010 to 2016. I breastfed my eldest son 3.5 years and stopped only on the 8th month of pregnancy, having learned that I was pregnant with twins. It is not that I was eager to breastfeed my son after 3.5 years, I just wanted to breastfeed him until he weans himself.01 August 2017
