  • I could understand wanting to provide nutrition but couldn't the lady just pump her breast milk and offer it in a cup? I sounds to me like there is a separation anxiety issue here. There seriously needs to be an intervention...LOL

  • I thought It looked very weird and most people would say, when your kids can ask for it you should probably quit...then I saw this: The human body biologically expects to breastfeed for up to about seven years of age ~ the universal age for losing the milk teeth. There is so much anthropological and scientific evidence to show that this is what our body needs and expects, regardless of the culture, climate, race or status we are born into. That seems to make sense. I don't know if I'd personally do it that long and if I did...I'd probably just pump and serve it in a cup...does anyone else find the tooth losing thing interesting? Anyone have more info on that?
