Host: Is there any time we say you should have breastfeed pass at a certain point? When do you think it's the right time to stop? Is there is a certain point, six months, a year, two years? Myrtle Hodge: That's between mother and baby. Host: But what would be the average time that you would say very good idea? Myrtle Hodge: There is no very good -- again, mothers and babies have to work that out. We try to -- people may try to force, they abuse -- because 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, were 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? And she would say, what she want to do. I said, do it. That was it, and she did it, until they both gave it up. Host: Thank you very much.
