I saw an article online about a woman who still breast feeds her 13 year old son and says she has no intentions of stopping anytime soon. I find this to be VERY bizarre and there is no possible way that this isn't mentally scarring for the boy. He's at the age when he's going to start puberty and is still drinking directly from mom?! If she was expressing, though still creepy IMO, it would not be NEARLY as bad. But this is going to cause mental scarring for this child. This woman is setting her son up for an extreme Oedipal complex! What do you ladies think about this? And how long is too long for you when it comes to breast feeding?
