Breastfeeding Moms Breastfeeding Moms
A group on facebook posted a question about breastfeeding. The question was how old is too old to nurse? Some of the replies were horrible! I took screenshots they will be in the replies. What do you ladies think about this?

My dd just turned 21 months yesterday and she is still bf 3-4 times a day and whenever she wants at night. She doesn't bf when we're out, since there is so much other stuff to see and do. We will probably go until she is out of the nursery at our church at 3, or she self weans.

Oh my god! Lol! That shut him up haha.
Ive gotten a positive comment from a young man one day. We were at a Target store and Xander got hungry so i sat in a chair and started nursing him. A few minutes later a guy maybe in his early 20s comes up to me and asks if im breastfeeding. I said yes and he said "youre doing an awesome job and giving your baby the best! I wish my mom would have breastfed me. Maybe then i wouldnt be so skinny" lol

My answer... A child is too old to nurse when he can no longer latch properly due to the changes from his adult teeth coming in. My son is 5 and nurses a couple times a week. The immune system isn't fully developed until about the same time that the milk teeth fall out. There is a reason why these happen at the same time.

Same, still BF my 19 month old in public, no comments, but some nasty glares. As my mom used to say "Tough TITTY said the kitty!" I trust DS to know when he needs it and so he gets it and will until he self-weans.

LOL OMG! Perverted?? These people are so ignorant. I think if you were to get statistics I bet that most perverted people were formula fed. We hear about a lot of nasty people out there right now and they are anywhere from 50 and under and that was when they started pushing formula and docs were telling mothrs that formula was better for babies. BFing ir normal it's what's supposed to happen. That's why we have boobies and make milk. People never cease to amaze me!

And babies preferring formula?? That is soo not true! If you BF and also give formula the baby can prefer a bottle but that doesn't mean they prefer formula! Some babies have a bad latch also but you get help and then everything is fine. lol I;m just appauled!
