Re: breastmilk for older children
When my ds was 2 months old I started manually expressing about 1/2 to 2 oz per day-depending on if I had time to do so or not- and then giving it to my 2 year old dd the next morning mixed with her regular milk. She gets either milk with olvatine or milk mixed with pediasure in the mornings because she'snot a good eater. But anyway, she gets about 6-14 oz of BM per week. The week after I started giving it to her my husband and I got the flu and it was the worst flu we had ever had. All she and ds got were runny noses!!!
So I say go for it! Even if you have to disguise it. (I have to-she won't drink it straight)
