Breastfeeding Questions - Stopping Breastfeeding - Tips
My baby is 19 months old and he still requires a breastfeed at sleeping times, which is usually once in the afternoon and at night, and sometimes even in the early mornings.
I need to know is it the right time to stop breastfeeding and if so, please suggest some tips .
Also, please suggest some excercises for my breasts which have sagged due to breastfeeding.

Speak to your doctor if you are really worried about it as s/he may be able to advise you about other possibilities.
