This is a touchy subject as there are some pretty radical “Breast is Best” people out there. Some will even breast feed their kids till they’re entering middle school … yes … really. Look it up on Youtube. I couldn’t find the video on the 12 year old, but here’s one called “extreme breastfeeding” … funny name. Is that like extreme skiing, extreme surfing, etc.?
Anyway, here’s what I want to say about that. As much as I find it repulsive to have a school age child still on the boob, I also respect freedom of choice. My revulsion is just a personal opinion, not a professional judgment. If you want to keep breastfeeding, go right ahead. But don’t be mad at us who vomit a little in our mouths when we see you whip out a boob for your 10 year old son.
If you know of anyone “extreme breastfeeding” I’d love to hear from you and your opinions on same.
