Comment on Let Your Body Be The Place of Comfort by Wendy Wisner.

Hi there! I was just thinking of writing about toddler breastmilk and nutrition! First, it is totally normal for toddler to be a little fussy about what they want to eat, and have days they eat a lot and days they eat less. As long as you are offering her healthy choices, let her pick and choose right now. If she is gaining and thriving, you are doing great! It is NOT TRUE that breastmilk has no nutritional value after 12 months. In fact, it has quite a bit, and does a good job filling in the gaps when a baby is fussy with solids. Here is a good fact sheet about that (scroll down to see a nutritional breakdown of breastmilk for 12-24 month olds): http://kellymom.com/ages/older-infant/ebf-benefits/. I hope that answers your question. Feel free to contact me off-line, if you wish (WendyWisner@aol.com).
