They breastfeed their children all the way up to school ...

... and it's not a joke.
In Mongolia, mothers do breastfeed children no less than 6 years old. And sometimes longer.
They believe that the only way out of a boy is to get a great fighter, and the struggle for the Mongols is all. This is a national sport. The Mongols are convinced that Genghis Khan was made from breast milk. Therefore, if Mongol wrestling is a national sport, then breast milk of Mongolian women is a national food. Moreover, breast milk is actually used in the preparation of various dishes, as well as for the treatment of old people and eye infections.
But this is not all the "nuances" of child education in Mongolia. Quite often on the street you can see just such a picture. Mom barely drags a log, wrapped in a blanket and tied with ribbon in different places.

Small children in Mongolia can swaddle up to 3 months or even longer. As a result, the baby resembles a certain bundle-log, sometimes quite impressive size.If the bundle makes a sound, the chest is immediately inserted into its mouth. This is the only and most reliable means of calming Mongolian children.
In general, breastfeeding in public places is an absolutely normal thing. People do not even turn away warningly, noticing that you are breastfeeding the baby, but on the contrary - they have all sorts of attention signs, convincing the nursing mother that she is doing everything correctly ...
Here they are, the Mongols) And on this note, I finish a small series of stories about this country.
