Salami Hayek's Addicted to Breastfeeding

She's putting the big girls to work!

Salma Hayek reveals in a new interview that she is addicted to breastfeeding!

Says Salami, "I'm like an alcoholic. It is like, I don't care if I cry, I don't care if I am fat, I am just going to do it for one more week, one more month, and then when I see how much good it is doing her (precious little Valentina) and I can't stop."

Maybe she'll stop when more of baby V's teeth come in?

Hey, moms out there, when did U stop whipping out the boob and why?

Is Salami's addiction a normal thing?

Enlighten us!

    Dude, as soon as your kid is old enough to say "boob more boob" Its time to cut the little suckerws off. That is how Euro's do it tho, I know a lady I used to work for who breast fed all three of her kids until they were 5 years old!!! Not for me thanks.



  2. 102

    14 months and 11 months.
    Their teeth don't hurt but twice. First time, you yelp and it scares them. Next time you yelp again and they don't do it again.

    I am still nursing my 18 month old, although it has slowed down remarkably. I am going until the age of 2, as recommended by his Pediatrician and the La Leche League. Breastfeeding is very healthy for mother and child. It reduces the mother's risk of breast cancer, is a huge prevention for juvenile diabetes, childhood obesity, and not to mention the millions of antibodies that the baby gets at each feeding.

    I nursed my daughter until she was 12 months and only stopped because I got pregnant again. I do not plan to go past the age of 2 with my son. Past that point is a bit much for me. It is an emotional bond that you have to experience to understand. To know that your body can provide immunities to illnesses and childhood problems that are becoming common in our society is a very empowering thing. My son is 18 months and has never been sick. My daughter is 3 and has had one illness so far. I attribute that to breastfeeding and the building of a super immune system that formula can not even come close to.



  4. 104

    One year is great - two years is great too, by the time a child is in his/her second year of breast feeding, solids have been introduced so the nursing time is reduced and eventually drops down to once at night - many people go much longer, it's a lovely thing, good for the baby, soothing for baby and mom - great bonding. World Health Organization recommends 2 years.



  5. 105

    I breastfed my daughter for 2 years. Best thing I've ever done. She is a well-adjusted 17-year-old honor student who has never had an ear infection or stomach problems. My son was preemie, so was bottlefed and I was so disappointed, so I have done both. By the way, they will only bite you once. They get the idea pretty quick that if they do that, they won't get what they want. I am astounded at the women who don't breast feed. It is so wonderful (and cheap!).



  6. 106

    Re: Gnasty – Last I checked breast milk is free. And bottles to fill them with arent expensive either



  7. 107

    I breast-fed both my children til they were a year, you def sacrifice your "me" time when you breast-feed. It takes alot out of ya, but some mom's do it til their kids are 2,3 or even 4, I think past 2 is too old but to each his own!



  8. 108

    Somehow, she DOESN'T look like a porn star with those DD+'s. I don't blame her for continuing to breast feed…she looks great!



  9. 109

    Re: vbitch – do you know how many dirty men get turned on by bare breast and even more by somone, anyone sucking on it? get real, its not about mtohers rights, its about protecting your body and child. its a private/spiritual/bonding blah blah blah so do it in the comfort of your home,car or atleast under a cover.its not just conservatives, its the concerns.



  10. 110

    Re: Major Dude – I breasfed for 9 months. Nothing erotic for me. Sorry.



  11. 111

    Re: mamacita402
    That has to be one of the most ignorant statements I've read in a long time, even on this website. May I remind you that God gave women milk-producing breasts for the EXPRESS purpose of feeding their babies long BEFORE the days of breast pumps?? Breasts were made to be functional, not sexual. (Pardon me, guys but that's the reality. Not that I think they can't be used for pleasure during sex, too!). Breast feeding is the most natural thing in the world and anyone that thinks differently has some issues that they should work on. I'm glad that you're at least giving your child breast milk but I sure hope you don't pass along your breast feeding hang ups to him/her when they're older.



  12. 112

    I breastfed my son for a little over two years. It was emotionally hard to stop, but it was time. I understand what she means. Most of your readers are probably too immature/perverted to understand.



  13. 113

    i plan on breastfeeidng my daughter for the reccomended time by thw world health organization….2 years……her daughter is only 13 months……so its totally normal and VERY healthy for the baby.



  14. 114

    Breast feeding releases endorphines, essentially giving you the "happy effect." However I'll say this, what she is doing really isn't wrong. The baby isn't past the age of 3. Many parents across the globe breastfeed up until the age of 3 (usually because in third world countries the continuation of breast feeding acts as a birth control). Breast feeding to a slightly later stage has also been shown to be better for the child, physically and emotionally. I think it is a person choice, however honestly from my own perspective she should stop by age 1 1/2.



  15. 115

    I breastfed my son until he was 2 years 2 months.



  16. 116

    What she is feeling is completely normal. Being that she is a first time mother and she sees the benefits that it has for her child it is encouraged by many health and medical professionals that women breastfeed until their child is 2-4 years of age for children who r disabled it is recommended (for those who can) to feed until 5 in some cases. Her feelings are what she should feel because she feels the bond between her and her baby. Its precious and healthy.



  17. 117

    re=3097585]Re: _Alice_[/re] WORD!



  18. 118

    Yeah, it's actually really normal. A lot of moms (especially 1st timers) get hooked on the bonding of it all. Some women are afraid to stop breastfeeding because they're afraid they'll get fat again (breastfeeding tends to help you lose the baby weight faster). Doctors tell you that the baby should be weined off the tit at 1 year old and drinking whole milk. They say that you can start weining at 6 months. Thank the heavens I couldn't breastfeed when I had my daughter. Doesn't sound like much fun (and yes, I know the benefits are great)!!



  19. 119

    since you ask…….9 mos, 4 mos, and 2 mos



  20. 120

    6 months to a year is kinda the average but it is really the thing to do now, so some are breast feeding for 2-4 years. I really bonded with my daughter while doing it but that is a bit long for me. To each their own.



  21. 121

    Re: justhereforawhile

    you have my sympathies…people who tell everyone how it SHOULD be done should get their heads out of their asses…

    I hate preachers



  22. 122

    Re: *pebbles* – i know healthwise its very good and im sure there are more benefits. i just dont ever plan on having children and its experience i wont ever have. so im kind of an outsider to a foreign concept. im not bashing breastdfeeding b/c i definately see its purpose. i just think the isuue should have boundaries and consideration of whats appropriate for the childs sake.



  23. 123

    Of course its not an addiction, its natural. In developing countries women often carry on nursing their children well into toddlerhood as it gives them safe nutrience. That is what we are evolved to do.



  24. 124

    Mamasita…U R A MORON!!! My man HAS to share my boobies with our son. He loves that I breastfeed and btw, I am breast feedin as I write this lol



  25. 125

    it is addictive - the endorphins are legal…but i stop at teeth.

    126

    Re: MissDoodahDay – That's a pretty generalized and asinine statement to write. I wanted to breastfeed but couldn't because of some health issues my baby had..does that mean I am an idiot for not breastfeeding?

  27. Debue says – reply to this


    127

    I breastfed my daughter until she was 23 months. It was one of the best experiences of my life and definitely addicting. It was something only I could do for her and I had to quit at 6 weeks with my first son and 4 months for my next child so I felt so content to go as long as she wanted or needed me. It was so sad to stop.



  28. 128

    Dear Salma,
    I promise not to use my teeth if you are looking for volunteer suckers.



  29. 129

    I breast fed both of my children until 1yr. The younger one has a milk and soy allergy so I brst fed her until she was 16 mos.



  30. 130

    Salma is TOTALLY normal and good for her! I breastfed til my daughter was almost 2, I stopped because she didn't want it anymore and I was ready to get back to normal. Not only is breastmilk really really good for the kid, but it's all about the bonding as well :-)



  31. 131

    Bravo to all mothers who breastfeed or have breastfed. If you can't not a big deal. I think it's a personal descision if you do cool, if not so what. I'm not going to think of people as less of a mother for not breastfeeding everyone has different lives. But as a hispanic woman, all the woman in my family have at least tried to breastfeed. It is a wonderful natural thing. People that see it as sexual or dirty are crazy, and misinformed.



  32. 132

    i bf for 11 mths. it is VERY normal to bf past a year.



  33. 133

    HELL NO, it's not addicting! I couldn't stand it. I tried for 2 weeks and it wouldn't work. My boy was given a bottle in the hospital by the staff and I think it ruined him. He wouldn't latch on right and I went to a breat feeding consultant twice! It hurt like Hell and I was miserable doing it. Next time I'm not going to even try. Formula all the way :)



  34. 134

    Re: poisanna

    I cant believe a woman can make a comment like that, I do cover up in public when I breast feed my 5month old but honestly why should it bother another woman to catch a glimpse of my nipple is beyond me… ???



  35. 135

    Breastfeeding is great but to those mothers who think that we want to see your boobs, please cover up in public. Throw a blanket over you and the baby and your breast. As a woman I don't see anything wrong with it but not all people think alike. I've breastfed all 4 of my kids and they are smart, healthy kids!! But if I went out I always had a blanket to cover up so I wouldn't get those werid or dirty looks.



  36. 136

    I'm still going with 15 month old twins (they were 9 weeks early though).
    Extended nursing is quite common around the world. Nursing in the US is taboo and that's sad!



  37. 137

    Re: MissDoodahDay – fuck you…some women try really hard but their babies don't take to it or they can't bc of medication they are on. don't judge other mothers…it's rude!



  38. 138

    I stopped as soon as the colostrum was gone since that is the vital immunities, plus my daughter was a biter from day one! It hurt, blisters and shit, OUCH! I remember her latching on and while she fed I was blubbering in pain. She went straight to formula after that! God bless Carnation goodstart! Some mothers do it because it gives you large hooters but Salami doesnt have that problem naturally. Some mothers do it because they like the feeling. FYI - full breast of milk are like carrying around a sack of rock on your chest.



  39. 139

    I nursed my first for 20 months. Still nursing my second (6 months so far). Will stop when we were both ready. It really is a beautiful thing.



  40. 140

    Most of the women I know breastfeed for at least a year, and they start weaning around 2.



  41. 141

    I breastfed all 10 of my kids until they went to pre-school



  42. 142

    Cherry Bomb = Thank you Mamacita = retarded



  43. 143

    Good for her! What a fucking great addiction!! The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for 2 years. The health benefits are enormous. I breastfed for 21 months and I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. Yes, it's time-consuming, but I just don't understand those people who decide not to because it's not "convenient." But then, I'd walk through fire for my child. And we have the strongest bond possible!!



  44. 144

    I always stopped nursing my kids once their teeth came in(and mine are biters!) which is usually 6-7 months old.After that, they're on the bottle! :)



  45. 145

    Re: MissDoodahDay – ah, actually, YOU are the idiot. people who stop breastfeeding because their kids get teeth 1. are quitters 2. are unable to teach their kids right from wrong (biting)
    so, how's that feel?

    16 months for my daughter, and 18 for my son. it's just easier than getting a bottle! i'm lazy.



  48. 148

    It's very normal! Both of my boys were titty babies and i loved it. It's the sweetest bond. I breastfed my oldest until he was 16 months but when he started lifting up my shirt and saying "momma i unt a dwink", i said "o heck no child, go get your sippy cup" & that was it, i was done lol Doctors will tell you to do it for as long as you feel comfortable bc it is great for the child which is very true. My kids are hardly ever sick. :) :)



  49. 149

    chiHUAHUA!



  50. 150

    Re: nicole713326 – I didn't breastfeed my daughter except when I was in the hospital (I had to go back to work right away), and she's 19 months old and she still hasn't gotten a cold. So I don't think there's a difference between breastfed and formula fed.



  51. 151

    I use Playtex nursers because they are as close to the breast as you can get with a store bought bottle. The drop ins empty like the breast and don't allow too much air to upset your baby's belly. I breastfeed and pump so I can have help and babysitters can also feed the baby. If you use the nursers it reduces nipple confusion but you need to stick with the same bottles, don't switch them out. I only did it for 2 months with my first child because I was young and immature and it hurt too much but this time around I'm sticking with it until she can drink whole milk.



  52. 152

    my mom stopped with both me and my sister at the one year mark. Apparently, I didn't care.. but my sister wanted to hang on.. but mom wasn't sorry to stop. Hi, she was uncomfortable/sore, swollen, getting bitten.. She did it because she felt it was best nutrient wise for us, but not for any of her own enjoyment other than intimacy.



  53. 153

    god damn she is pretty



  54. 154

    I nursed for 3 1/2 years. It creates a stronger bond with child. It is really great for the child's IQ. It makes parenting easier. Throughout the world it is very common to nurse your child. It is best for the child to ween on their schedule.



  55. 155

    Deffinatly not addicted, but it is sad to wean your child from breastfeeding because your loosing that bonding time.
    I nursed my son until he was 11 1/2 months old. I nursed my first daughter until she was 13 months old and I'm into my 3rd month of nursing my youngest daughter and I will nurse her until at least a year old. I do it because its best for them (and cheaper). Matter of fact I'm nursing her as I type this. NAK = nursing at the keyboard.



  56. 156

    I breast fed my son for 3 years. Yes long I know and a lot of people will be disgusted by it but It was great to be able to nurse for that long. Good for Salma for being committed to nursing, for however long she and valentina chooses.



  57. 157

    9 months. It's good for the baby and the momma…and apparently the boobages



  58. 158

    Two of my kids nursed until 2 1/2 yrs. My oldest only nursed for 8 months….which was too short. I should have hung on for at least a year.

    Breastmilk is best for baby, and best for the mother. Did you know the longer you breastfeed your child, the more your risk is lowered for breast cancer? That is awesome.



  59. 159

    Re: mamacita402
    i pump my breast milk because i think attaching your child to your boob is effin disgusting..my babies are reserved for my man, not my children. i do agree that the milk is better which is why i exclusivly pump but i read people who feed on their boobs until children are almost 2 and i dont know why. that is the nastiest thought that can go through my mind ?
    Seriously? your boobies are meant for you man but not your kids? Loser, you are Equipped with boobies for your kids.



  60. 160

    My experience; 11 months with the 1st baby and 8 months with the 2nd. It is beautiful but very hard at the same time . The Academy of Pediatricians recommend 1 yr, or 6 months at least. My sister did it for 1 year and 8 months and I think that the last 8 months she was doing it for herself not the baby. I also think it can be addictive. I think is stupid not to do it on the baby's first months but it is also stupid to be breastfeeding a kid that walk and talk.



  61. 161

    I nursed all 3 of my kids till they were between 8 and 10 months. As soon as I got bit, they were weened. I enjoyed nursing cause it was the only time during the day I could sit down and relax.



  62. 162

    I would USE my SALAMI on HER!



  63. 163

    I'm still breastfeeding at 5 months, plan on going past 12 months. I pump at night and in the morning because I go to class every day.

    It's free, it's healthy for both of you, and the endorphines are a bonus. Did I mention it's free? Formula costs a fortune and should only be used if medically necessary.

    It's such a shame that we live in a society where breastfeeding is shunned.



  64. 164

    I breast fed all 3 of my children to 13 months. I am currently still nursing my 3rd (he is 13-1/2 months). He is still nursing twice a day, so I assume we will go for another month before he is done. It can be addicting, and you have an amazing bond/connection with your baby. Not to mention how beneficial it is for baby and mom!



  65. 165

    I nursed my daughter for 18 months and it is totally addictive for at least three reasons: 1) oxytocin 2) get milk out 3) opportunity to sit or lie down with your child and do nothing for 10-30 minutes. Like a smoke break, only wholesome and healthy!
    I only stopped because my daughter wanted to nurse so much at night and I was so tired of waking up to do it. I am kind of a light sleeper and it would always totally disturb me for up to an hour.



  66. 166

    I nursed my daughter for 14 months. It's a great bonding experience; plus she is very healthy to this day. She will be 22 in 9 days. One great thing about nursing is - you can pretty much eat what you want, and you won't put on any weight. I lost all the baby weight a few extra pounds that I was carrying before I got pregnant…lol…best weight loss diet I've ever been on! :)



  67. 167

    i nursed all three of mine in fact i nursed my second while pregnant with my third, they stopped between 13 and 14 months all on their own, i would have gone longer. it is soo nice not to have to worry about bottles and keeping formula cold etc. i know people who nursed their child till 3 or so and the only thing i can say is by that age they are old enough to keep the nursing at home, when out and about they can easily use a cup.
    and as for looking at animals Cherry Bomb, thats all well and good but you have to take into account the life span of an animal versus a human, animals are infants for a much shorter time than people are. frankly its no ones business how long someone nurses but the mother and the child, and society should pull the stick out of its collective ass and stop being so uptight about it.



  68. 168

    Thought I was the only one….I keep saying I'm going to stop but she acts so much different when she doesn't get breast milk so I'm going to milk the opportunity literally.



  69. 169

    As long as you can up until the baby is 2 - After that, it's sort of weird. If the child is old enough to potentially remember breastfeeding, that's a BAD thing. I breastfed my little one until she was 19 months.



  70. 170

    Our babies were born on the same day 9/21/07, so irrelevant and stupid…but just wanted to share!



  71. 171

    I am addicted to watch her breasts pop out of her dresses.

    172

    Re: Ginphadora Tonks – i was the same way! good for u ?(or whoever youre talking about) for trying!



  73. 173

    Oh yeah, Micheal Jordan's mom breastfed him for 3 years, and look how awesome he turned out. GO SALMA!!



  74. 174

    Breast feeding is great for mom and great for baby. The longer you do it, the more you decrease your chances of getting breast cancer. It makes you skinny too. You lose the baby weight without even trying! It's also a great tool for calming baby and toddler. Add to that the health benefits to the baby's immune system and it becomes hard to imagine why anyone WOULDN'T do it!

    Breast feeding is NOT sexual! It's just feeding your baby. All mammals feed their babies this way. It's how we were designed. The benefits to the baby are huge. Plus, it's free! I breast fed my older son until he was nearly three. He self weaned — probably because I got pregnant and my body stopped making milk. My current son is nearly two and we're still nursing.

    People who think it's gross to breast feed a baby or a toddler are the weird ones!



  75. 175

    I breastfed my first until she was about 15 months. She stopped on her own and her teeth were not a problem. It is hard to give up mainly because its a bonding time and you know its so good for them. I dont agree with MissDoodahday.. Women who dont breastfeed have their reasons and while we may not agree with them, she shouldnt call them idiots for not doing it. My second son didnt breastfeed because of health issues and I with another small child to chase after, I was never able to find the time to pump. He is just as healthy as my daughter!



  76. 176

    I think that the WHO (World Health Organization) says that 2 years of breastfeeding is best… and, of course, as the baby gets older, mom will feed less and the baby will also begin to eat solid foods.



  77. 177

    Ok, breast feeding is a healthy experience for children. Agree. Please refrain from saying that people who do not breast feed are idiots. Some women's bodies do not produce milk. Some babies refuse a mother's milk. Unfortunate but it happens. For people who breast feed for too long (over 1 year in my opinion), you can say it's good for the child as long as you can convince yourself, I guess. Sure, it feels good, addictive…whatever. If we all ran around doing stuff just because it felt good, there would be even more madness than already exists. Do what's right for your child, not you.



  78. 178

    More power to her if she can stand it, but there was no way it was gonna happen to me. The idea of it made me very tense, and after pregnancy I was ready to get my body back!!! If kid's healthy & formula's doing the trick, best to not have a tense/unhappy mama.



  79. 179

    …and I should also note that Nelly Furtado breastfed her daughter for 2 years!



  80. 180

    once they can ask for it with words and can unhook the bra….it's time to stop!

  81. rrvj says – reply to this


    181

    Breast feeding send out hormones that actually relax the hell out of you and the baby. I breast fed both my babies. My daughter was fed till 9 months and my son was breast fed till 6 months. I was so upset when I stopped breastfeeding. First and foremost it was the best for my children and second it was so convienant.

    It was addicting. I had a hard time letting go. Salma is doing the best for her baby and herself (breastfeeding also reduces your chances of cancer)…..



  82. 182

    I nursed my three kids for 11 months each and it was a wonderful experience. Breast milk is the only true food for infants-formula is just that a "formula" that imitates milk and is not natural for infants. Every mother owes it to her child to at least TRY breastfeeding for the first few weeks except for those who have medical issues & can't.
    Some mothers forget the most important reason for breastfeeding is nutrition. No one should be a human pacifier to soothe a toddler or child. Once they are receiving most of their nutrition from solid food, nursing is not really needed as much.
    When a toddler can walk up to his/her mother with a cookie in hand & lift their shirt and ask for milk to go with it, it's time to quit!



  83. 183

    I was a breastfeeding mother and it is "addictive". It is something that only you and your child can share and no one else can have any part of it. I remember thinking that breastfeeding was "GROSS!" when I was younger. I didn't appreciate the bond between mother and child until I became a mother myself.



  84. 184

    I can't believe that I am publicly saying this, but I breastfed my son until he was 3 1/2. He was a 12lb baby (I'm 5 foot 1 90 lbs!) so he came out big and strong and he demanded his "milkie". He is 7 1/2 now and in 2nd grade. He scored higher than 97 percent of the entire nation in ALL subjects on his recent state tests. I attribute it to the above and to working with him since he was 6 months old. My doctor gave me a high five so I say go Salma Hayek! Plus you must admit, those jugs are beautiful!

    Re: mamacita402 – that' s messed up! for your man? grow up, breasts are for breasfeeding, men who worship breasts miss their mamas. Did it ever occur to you that bonding with your child is an integral part of breastfeeding?



  86. 186

    Re: sherrz like WHOA – There is a big difference. Just because you have been lucky and haven't seen a difference doesn't mean there isn't one.

    And for everyone who said it's time consuming, its WAY faster than mixing and warming up bottles and my boobs drain faster than a bottle with a slow flow nipple. We're in and out in 10 min.



  87. 187

    Reminds me of that skit from Little Britain with the full grown man (30's +) is begging his Mother for "Bitty"…AKA he was trying to breast feed at a restaurant in front of his fiance's family and the Mom lets him! This is what will happen with future generations if they 1) don't get the shit kicked out of them in 2nd grade for bringing "Mommy's Breastmilk" to school in his lunch pail or 2) he doesn't hang himself at age 20 for having a Mother complex.

    Full grown adult: "Bitty! I want Bitty!"

    Mother: "here you go Sweetheart" (flops out a very used breast and starts BFing her 30 year old son or daughter)

    Only half joking…



  88. 188

    Ya, I breast fed my daughter till she was 4 years old…
    and she is healthy happy little girls and so are my JUGS!! :)

    totally normal to breastfeed 3+ years and the sign of a very good mommy!!!!!!!!

    Re: RAE4KMA – I totally agree with you. I am breastfeeding my youngest (he is 2 months) right now, but the thought of breastfeeding my 2 year old seems nasty!! He is too aware. He knows I have boobs and Daddy doesn't.

    My daughter is turning two next month and we are still breastfeeding. I like it for it's closeness, and my daughter has hardly ever been sick! :D

    I love it! I am still nursing my 5 month old and will until he's about 1. It's so good for them!! Plus it gives us a nice quiet time to cuddle and bond!

    My daughter was only interested in nursing for 7 months, my son LOVED it and nursed for 18 months. They are both super healthy and very different in temperament so looking back they decided when they'd had enough. The extra calories you burn was a huge benefit for losing the preggo punds.

    My daughter was 18 months. The Dr. recommended nurse until she was 2 if I could yet she weaned herself. She began to get teeth at 6 months of age and when she would attempt to nibble I simply LIGHTLY tugged her hair to let her know she was causing pain and after just a couple of times she didn't do it again. I will say besides it being the BEST bond ever, she didn't get sick (cold, flu, ear infection, ect.) until about a month after I stopped nursing her.

    I could only do a month. No addiction problem for me. Plus, she doesn't have to go to the office every day like I do. Babies sleep longer with formula, not milk.

    Re: sherrz like WHOA
    Just because your one personal experience would seem that way, doesn't mean there isn't a difference. And apparently since you only did one and not the other, you wouldn't have any basis for comparison anyway.

    As usual Perz- you're an ass. So glad you're not a breeder.

    The American Academy of Family Physicians recommends that breastfeeding continue throughout the first year of life and that "Breastfeeding beyond the first year offers considerable benefits to both mother and child, and should continue as long as mutually desired." They also note that "If the child is younger than two years of age, the child is at increased risk of illness if weaned." (AAFP 2001)
    A US Surgeon General has stated that it is a lucky baby who continues to nurse until age two. (Novello 1990)
    The World Health Organization emphasizes the importance of nursing up to two years of age or beyond (WHO 1992, WHO 2002).
    Scientific research by Katherine A. Dettwyler, PhD shows that 2.5 to 7.0 years of nursing is what our children have been designed to expect (Dettwyler 1995).

    Haha I'm pretty sure most men can't figure out how to unhook a bra much later in life than they can ask for milk.

    Two years baby! And my son rocks! Breast feeding is the way to go, bravo Salma. Plus, look how great she looks, and I am sure she can eat whatever she wants!!!
    Je t'aime Perez!!
