Danica McKellar: I Stopped Breastfeeding My Toddler Two Weeks Ago

Danica McKellar recently stopped breastfeeding her 2 1/2-year-old son Draco. Last week the 38-year-old Wonder Years star attended the launch for Milky – a new herbal tea supplement to boost milk production in nursing mothers – when she shared the news to US Weekly.

She said, “[We] actually just finished breastfeeding a couple of weeks ago. I’m a huge fan of breastfeeding, and I love the fact that Tia and Tamera came out with this product.”

She explained how she was able to maintain her milk supply for such a long time.

“If I were having to pump, it wouldn’t work. I don’t get that much when I pump. When he nurses directly, it’s no problem. Supply and demand. I’ve been really fortunate that way.”

She continued, “[Draco] still asks for it sometimes, but he’s ready to be independent. He asks, but only in the morning when he’s still half asleep. He doesn’t ask during the day at all. It’s like an automatic response, but then he starts playing and forgets.”

McKellar split from her husband Mike Verta last June. Their divorce was finalized earlier this year.

The actress did reveal she would like to have more children one day.

She admitted, “I’m divorced so I have to find the father, but it’s definitely an option. It’s something I think about sometimes and if it’s right, I would definitely go for it.”
