"Extended" nursing in public

Destigmatizing mothers and kids…

With this project, the idea is, to normalize breast-feeding older kids in public. The WHO recommends breast-feeding up to two year old kids and longer if everyone feels comfortable with it. The natural weaning process lies approximatelybetween 2,5 years and 7 years.
