First let me state, and many of you know, I am a firm believer in breast feeding and nursed both of my older children as well as plan to nurse my new baby when she gets here. BUT, due to some recent questions and news stories I have been wondering at what point it becomes some kind of perversion?
For me, it's obvious that if a child is under the age where they are discovering their own sexuality it's not abuse, but each of us reach that age differently.
That said there are more and more stories about 12 and 14 year olds who are nursing... So at what point does this go from being what is best for the child and become a perversion? or doesn't it?
If this were your friend or family member nursing an "older child" or "young teen" would it bother you? At what point would you feel a need to step in? Or would you simply believe this was their choice?
