I'm looking forward to the day when we can follow a single child from this show, to Dance Moms, then 16 and Pregnant and finally Intervention. Cradle to grave entertainment.

You can't call it the "boob tube" for over fifty years, and not see this one coming.

booger42: JUst read a passage in a memoir yesterday that said

"I breastfed my daughter until she was 2 and a half. She weaned the day she looked up and said "It has a hair."

/LOL'd and gagged at the same time. Hence the term, Lollygag

FTFA: "Extreme Parenting will look at a range of America's kookiest parenting rituals, shedding a spotlight further on the much-hyped arguments for and against weaning your child after the age of one."

FTWHO: "WHO strongly recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. At six months, other foods should complement breastfeeding for up to two years or more. In addition:
-breastfeeding should begin within an hour of birth;
-breastfeeding should be "on demand", as often as the child wants day and night; and
-bottles or pacifiers should be avoided. "


That kooky WHO. But then they use science and whatnot and Fark doesn't buy all that sciency-y nonsense. You BIE-obsessed wonders are somehow mortified at the omnipresent spectre of titties being "whipped out" all over the place. The world is truly a terrifying place.

Gilligann: I'm sure it's mostly just a comfort thing for him at this point.


Think about this statement for a moment. When your 14-month-old wakes up in tears from a bad dream or because of a thunderstorm, do you tell him to STFU and be a man? No? Anything else is just placating his infantile need for "comfort." And don't even tell me that immature brat still likes hugs before you leave for work!

WhippingBoy: Thisbymaster: 16 breastfeeding and being breastfed.

Holy crap... think about it:

52-year old breastfeeding 39-year old
39-year old breastfeeding 26-year old
26-year old breastfeeding 13-year old
13-year old breastfeeding toddler

All at the same time!!!

kiwimoogle84: ace in your face: kiwimoogle84: reveal101: The whole idea really is idiotic. Once your kid starts eating solid food, they no longer need to be breastfeeding, and any extension on that is simply to placate the mother's insecurities.

This.

I think it would create confusion with a male child. I could see this ending like Oedipus Rex, sadly. Could be the reason some men grow up to have lactation or diaper fetishes.

When your kids have molars, or are old enough to ask for a boob, now you're doing it for yourself, not for your kid. I know it sheds a lot of weight/calories from a new mom's body, but come on. This is just a different version of helicopter parenting. Ugh.

My kid could say "boobie" at 6 months and had molars at 9 SOOOO.... your a farking idiot. Also, I was breastfed til. 3 and don't remember it at all and I do have other memories from before that. Breast feeding isn't a big deal to a child who has done it their whole life.

Oh well thank you random person who doesn't know shiat and hasn't read the advice of the WHO.

The WHO says up to 23 months, they tack on a "and beyond" to not make women like this feel bad.

Their diagrams say up to 23 months. with solid (mashed) foods being introduced at 6 months

http://www.who.int/features/qa/21/en/index.html

I'm aware. Saying that a baby shouldn't breastfeed after 6 months (the dawn of solid food) is effing retarded. And most people don't feed their babies for prolonged periods because they enjoy it, they do it because the BABY enjoys it.

18 month olds also enjoy staying up late and eating sugary snacks and sleeping in their parents' bed and running an entire roll of toilet paper through the house and s ...


"Hello, Mother. If you would be so kind as to proffer your bosom for my snack satisfaction, I would be most appreciative of said lactation."
