This has been seen most often in women of childbearing age but also has been observed in older persons. A baby who had lost his mother was suckled by his year-old grandmother, who had borne her last child 18 years before.

The grandmother produced milk after a few days and continued to nurse the baby until he was a year old and could walk.

Osteoporosis, the disease that causes bones to become less dense and more prone to fractures, has been called “a childhood disease with old age consequences,” because the bone mass attained in childhood and adolescence is an important determinant of lifelong skeletal health.

After 6 months of age, it becomes increasingly difficult for breastfed infants to meet their nutrient needs from human milk alone.
