Breastfeeding Past 3 Years

2 08 2009

Ann Sinnott is writing a book about breastfeeding older children and she needs to speak to mums with that experience.

“As the book is nearing completion, I thought I’d invite mothers who haven’t previously participated in my surveys (including the online survey) to do so now. Any interested mothers should email me at with their name in the subject field, and let me know their country and the ages of any currently breastfeeding children, and the ages of any that have weaned (last feed), by 14 Aug 09.

Am especially interested in mothers bfdg 3yr olds and older. Mothers feeding younger children who intend/wish to continue until their children are older, are also welcome to participate.

If, as an individual mother, you previously took part in one of the surveys, I’d be grateful for an update on your breastfeeding status. Email me details, with your name in subject field so that I can easily correlate with your previous submission.

If you cannot remember whether or not you have previously taken part, just send info to

Many thanks for your continued co-operation. By the way both Sheila Kitzinger and Naomi Stadlen (What Mothers Do) have read the typescript and commented favourably.

Best wishes

Any idea if she wants people whose kids have all weaned but *did* nurse past 3 years old?

Yes, she does. She says in the message, she's looking for those who had weaned to past 3….
