I had my son at home in the bath tub with a midwife. he was breastfeed exclusively for 5 month while he began to eat fruit. at 2 years old now he still nurses 2 times a day and i will continue to nurse as long as we both are willing and able to.i had my baby girl June 2011. i had her at home as well but on dry land. she is also exclusively breastfeeding. they have never had a bottle or pacifier. we share a family bed .
