Watching TV, *TABOO*i DONT agree with breastfeeding

I dont agree with breast feeding,
While the child is 5 yrs and older,

I think its gross,

Who honestly would do this honestly besides the crazy woman on tv,

IS ANYONE on cafemom BREASTFEEDING THEIR CHILD above the age of 3,

it shows that it does not HAVE any health value to the child eating an already healthy diet, after 3 years old, why do some do this?

  • Yeah i think so too, But there is a point of it in the western areas where we are breast are being looked at as sexual,
    and not okay at all , some people feel uncomfy around it, some people dont care like myself
    i only draw the line at the 3 yrs and older thing myself why would you do this to yourself and to your child it is proven that they do grow more dependent on the mother if their above a certian age,
    most mothers breastfeed at least until their 16 months that what they say the norm is,
    Other places like africa, show their breast freely and their not considerd at all sexual and their breast are just for baby

  • i plan to try to bf if nothing else pump for at least 6m if not a yr.

    i have seen posts on hear about bf a child that is 3 or older and i think it is weird i mean once your kid can get up and walk away from your breast its time to take the nipple out.

  • I plan on nursing till she decides shes done. She's 16 mo. already, and I don't see an end in sight. Boobies are for babies anyways

  • I did breastfeed one of my four children until 2 years old but, only first thing in the morning and the last thing before bed. I felt a little weird about it. My others stopped breast feeding at 6 months - 12 months. She was the last! We didn't want it to end! So shoot me!

  • Some people feel very strongly about self-weaning and don't feel it is right to wean a child before they are ready. It doesn't bother me. I feel that mothers know what is best for their child and if they want to BF their child till they're 5, that's their business. Who are we to judge what they feel is right? I don't agree with formula-feeding mothers(unless medically necessary) but I would never post something saying that I think it's gross or wrong.
