REVIEWS FROM COVER:

An exciting, highly original and carefully researched study of prolonged breastfeeding, discussed in an international context.’ SHEILA KITZINGER

‘At last, a writer who taps into the authentic voice of women who must fight to do what most mothers, since the dawn of time, took for granted.  Ann Sinnott addresses the fact that children as well as babies need to breastfeed.  She challenges the discrimination and even abuse that their mothers often endure.  A stimulating, fact-filled book which will intrigue, enthrall and appall the reader’. GABRIELLE PALMER, author of The Politics of Breastfeeding, When Breasts Are Bad For Business’.

‘I welcome Breastfeeding Older Children. I often talk to mothers who continue to breastfeed their older children but feel under pressure from other people to stop.  Ann Sinnott provides valuable support by stating the benefits of sustained breastfeeding, and quoting mothers who have written to her from different parts of the world.  She also shows how people who object to sustained breastfeeding have not given her rational justifications for their opposition.  This is a unique book.’ NAOMI STADLEN, author of ‘What Mothers Do –Especially when it looks like nothing’.

‘Thought provoking and intriguing…’ PROF MARIA MASACCI, Director Archaeology Minor, Dept of Anthropology, Drew University, USA
