Speaker: When do you think is the right time to stop it, is there a certain point, six months, a year, two years? Myrtle Hodge: That's between mother and baby. Speaker: But what would be the average time that you would say, very good idea? Myrtle Hodge: Yeah, there's no very good, again, mothers and babies have to work that out. People may try to force their views, and people as I know, there was one of my colleagues who breastfed I think into the babies third year of life and even everybody -- husband, relatives, pediatrician, everybody was saying, why don't you stop, why don't you do some -- but it was a comfort for both mom and baby, and she would call me and say, what do you think? I said, what do you want to do? She would say, what do you want to do, I said do it, and that was it, and she did it until they both gave it up. Speaker: Thank you very much.
