Okay so it's articles like this one that give breastfeeding a bad rap....the average person who clicks on this link on aol's homepage will be disgusted Breastfeeding - How Long is Too Long? - ParentDish....I am an avid pro- breastfeeder and plan to spend a lot of my adulthood in the education and support of breastfeeding (as an RN/IBCLC)...BUT even I could not breastfeed one of my children to age 5,6,7. I do support and stand by these woman and know several who do bf past toddlerhood, just not me.
Anyways, I digress.....It is stories like these that make others see breastfeeding moms as weird and extreme and selfish and harming to their offspring. And then....it's cool to click on the link with all the celebrities' pictures who also breastfed, that needs to be more out there to make it more normal and standard. But good grief could they please give another reason they chose to nurse besides WEIGHT LOSS!!
