Im just disgusted at how our society really sees breastfeeding. Comparing it to molestation and incest. Saying that only the mother is benefiting from extended bfing. X-( Im just disgusted!

I am too. Had a huge argument with lillys dad as well. He's such an ass and thinks just because breastfeeding might make someone uncomfortable, that I should use formula
I told him to get bent. XD

I haven't dared read the comments. I support the photo but I know most of society will find it unacceptable. It's really their loss though. If a parent can't look at that and see the beauty and love... that's sad.

I'm not even going to read the comments. It'll be all the same. It'll be "Pump and put it in a cup!" "Once they start asking for it, they're too old!" "It's because the mom doesn't want to let go!"

Very frustrating that our society is so backwards.

I'm staying away from the comments.

I am on a messageboard with a bunch of guys. I started by explaining a little & now I'm arguing with them along the lines of 'it's beneficial & it's also none of your business how others raise their kids'

Oh don't forget the "if a kid can pull up a chair, time to put the boob away!"
Hmm, with that logic, I should've weaned dd when she starting walking at 9.5 months! She was dragging her little chairs around all day!
Where do people come up with that crap?

I've been staying out of any discussion on this because the comments disgust me, but saying anything would be wasting my breath :(

I totally support EBF, but I do wonder why someone wouldn't put it in a cup? I mean..he's 3. It's WONDERFUL that he's still getting that breast milk..but he's 3. I think it's unnecessary for him to receive it from the breast. what if he continues on where he's in school..does the mom plan to follow him around or something? i don't know. Hopefully I won't get too much crap for saying that. It's just my opinion.
My opinion also has nothing to do what society thinks, but what it could possibly be doing to the child psychologically.
