I brestfed my son till the age of 2, and still breastfeeding my 15 month old girl.
My son, is extremely intelligent, didn't know it could have anything to do with breastfeeding just thought these days kids are getting smarter but he is really good at numbers and reading and he is only 3 and a half, my friend who also brestfed her son, is even smarter as he was reading at 3 and is also very good at maths.
My daughter apart from being child number two is also really good and by the way they never ever get sick, and it was so much cheaper than buying formula and easier. However, not everyone is in the position of being able to breastfeed, their godparents don't have that choice and unfortunately they miss out on all the benefits.. if you have a choice make an effort to breastfeed not only do you have that bond, but now they have benefits too!!!!
