I learned from my research that immune system benefits are much greater than previous thought for toddlers. A child's immune system is not fully developed until they are between 2 and 6 years old. I breastfed my child beyond a year old and he did not catch one illness from anyone around us, even though he was exposed quite a few in our household of five. I've had three colds since he was born and he never got sick. Breast milk is amazing stuff and it's perfectly made for the exact nutritional needs of your child at every stage of development during the first few years of life.

Next question overall
Why does it seem so many are for adoption when it isn't the adoptees choice...
