  • So after school does the child get "cookies and mom?!" LOL

    I think the "self weaning" concept isn't going to well, time to establish a few boundaries! ::sheesh!:: And WHY, if this mother INSISTS on breastmilk, can she not express it and give it too her in a cup? WHY does it have to be from the boob at THIS age?! ::smacks forehead::

  • I think it's gross !!!! And if I was 8 and being bf I would be embarass. At the age of 2 is pushing it. At the age of 8 is to me is the mother enjoying it more than the child ???

  • I do not think it is gross or wrong. The mother is simply letting the child self wean. The daughter finds comfort in breastfeeding. Sure, it is not "normal" or something we hear of often, but that does not make it wrong or gross. I have seen this video before. As for the child being embarrassed, I don't really see that happening because she is the one that wants to continue the breastfeeding. To each their own. If you don't agree with it, you don't have to do it for your children. :-)

  • Biologically we are made to breast feed until our milk teeth fall out. So typically that means between 5 and 7 years.

    Besides that, I ditto what TeaAndrews said :~)

  • Understand please, that in some cultures this is normal. Just because in modern culture, we see breastfeeding as for babies only, that doesn't mean that it's the only way to do this, or it's the only right way. I think many people, especially those who say whatever they want without thinking and hide behind the anonymous title, should have more respect for other people, especially since this does not affect your life in any way. Jeez. Find something important to bitch about.
