Note: Jones nursed both human and animal babies, and would nurse for two years before weaning a child. At 70 her mother was still able to nurse. Formerly, a woman avoided her husband for three months following the birth of a baby, in order to keep herself from becoming pregnant and to keep her milk flowing.
