Breastfeeding advocates...I have a question

 How do you feel about women who don't believe in birth control, that want to have 20+ kids, that wean their babies from breastfeeding at 6 months old or younger just to get pregnant again?

I think they're suffering from some mental issue, an addiction to pregnancy say. Getting pregnant is more important to them than caring for the kids they already have.

 I heard that is what Michelle Duggar does.  That is why I am wondering.  It seems a little ... conflicting??  I don't know what the word is.

I would be more concerned about the stress of pregnancies so close together on the moms bodies. If a mom wants to wean at 6 mo then that is her choice. I wont frown on them for it. Is it better for mom and baby to go longer? In most cases yees, but its still a personal choice.

I think their freakin' crazy.  The human body wasn't meant to shoot out 20 babies.  Pregancies take a lot out of the body.  I would hope that her doctor would be able to talk some sense into her and get her to slow down the baby factory. But I would imagine if the woman is that baby centered, she'd probably do extended breastfeeding.

I find it inappropriate. I think that baby needs the breast for at LEAST a year.

That woman is in a whole class of crazy all by herself.
