JAKARTA: Most actresses might skip the recommended first few months of breastfeeding their baby but actress Anne Junita Coto feels doubly proud of breastfeeding her little one.
“When you have a baby you can put aside anything, even yourself, for the baby,” said the 34-year-old woman.
Occupied with the nursing of her son, the actress admitted she has less time with her husband in bed.
“Sometimes when we’re ready [to make love] my son cries and I have to check on him,” she said.
Anne married American Mark Hanusz in June 25, 2005 and now the couple has a one-and-a-half-month-old baby, Julian Avanindra Coto Hanusz.
The woman, who was born in Pontianak in West Kalimantan on June 29, 1974, said she expected to breastfeed her son until he was two years old, as recommended by doctors, but she was having a little difficulty.
“My son is getting bigger and his primary teeth are coming through now so it makes me a little uncomfortable,” Anne said, adding that she will gradually reduce the breastfeeding.
“I don’t have the heart to see him crying for milk, but I have to,” said the woman who just finished filming her new movie Daddy versus My Boyfriend.
Anne began her career when she won the Miss Indonesia Friendship competition in 1995 and then moved to Jakarta in 1997 to pursue her acting career. — JP
