It can be difficult for mothers to wean their children off nursing, but the actress says it will be hard for her to stop too!

Kelly Preston admits when the time eventually comes for her 16-month-old son Benjamin Travolta to stop breastfeeding, it’s going to be “really hard” on her. 

“I love nursing so much,” she tells People.

She nurses Benjamin a couple times during the night and four or five times during the day. Night time feeding is easy because adorable little Benjamin sleeps in the bed with Kelly and her husband John Travolta.

The 49-year-old mother adds, “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.”

“He’ll come up and point and go, ‘Mama, more,” Kelly gushes. “It’s so cute!”

The cute tot doesn’t only go for milk, but has quite the palate. Benjamin, like his 12-year-old sister Ella Travolta, eats filet mignon, scallops, salmon, organic veggies. He will eat “pretty much everything.”

How cute!

HollyMoms, how old were your children when you stopped breastfeeding?
