Holly McIndoe (37) has been breastfeeding her daughter, Cassia, for the last two-and-a-half years. She said that she is willing to breastfeed the toddler until she is four or five-years-old, and will let her daughter decide when she is no longer interested.

It’s not that I have a date in mind for when I’m going to stop breastfeeding. I will continue with the breastfeeding relationship for as long as it’s something that Cassia wants to do, and as long as I feel comfortable doing it,” said Ms McIndoe.
