Kelly Preston Shares Love of Breastfeeding

The only person who might love breast feeding more than Kelly Preston? Her 16-month-old son, Benjamin.

"When I stop, it's going to be really hard on me. I love nursing so much," Preston, 49, told  People magazine. "I love the closeness and knowing that I'm giving him the best as far as nutrients and antibodies. And he really loves it, too."

Little Benjamin currently shares the bed with Preston and her husband, John Travolta. She said she nurses him a couple times a night and four or five times during the day.

"He'll come up and point and go, 'Mama, more,'" Preston said. "It's so cute!"

Preston is the latest celebrity mom to wax poetic about breastfeeding. In her new book about parenting, "Beyond The Sling," former "Blossom" star Mayim Bialik revealed that she still breastfeeds her 3-year-old son.
