Also that nursing a child over 2 is "akin to molestation" that i only NIP to cause controversy,etc.
That "Breastfeeding a child at3,4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 years old will hurt them emotionally.
that the inmate on death row is so messed up in the head because his mother did extended nursing.
ugh, how ignorant is that... what about the 75% of inmates that weren't breastfed??

Re: People actually think this???

I wonder if that post was from a she or a he?

There is a group on facebook that is dedicated to proving that breastfeeding isn't obscene. (If you're on there, I'm sure you've seen it!) And there are one or two guys (according to their profile) that this reminds me of. They are always making dumb sexual connections and references. I often wonder if that is truly their belief or if they just like to stir the pot to get a fight going. SOme people are like that. And then some people are just jacka@$#s. Sorry!

Ummm...I certainly don't trust my 6yo to pour milk from a 4litre jug. It would be all over the floor! I can barely lift the thing!

um...omg! I get seriously annoyed when people 'talk' about culture and really are clueless about it. 3rd world country? yea there are a bunch of pediphiles running around Zambia because they nursed past when they started walking and had teeth. Sexual boundaries? There is nothing sexual about breastfeeding. I do not understand people who think breastfeeding is gross and unnatural. How were babies fed before the mid-20th century? It's amazing the human species made it to the 21st, must have been some hungry babies for the last few million years.

ok, you all know this, I am done.

Re: People actually think this???

one more thing: the soap box hasn't collapsed yet,
People are so afraid of intimacy with their children it seems. What is wrong with nurturing your child through affection and nursing, showing with real actions of affection, that you love them with all your heart. Not to hijack but my husband and I get negative comments because we don't buy excessive things for our daughter and his son. We spend quality time, just caring, teaching, being a friend, mentoring.....being a parent to them. Material = a good parent....not from what I can see from the kids I see in our society in the last decade or so.
*falls on her a#$*
ok the box broke, I am done

It gets better, hun. You will LOVE it and it will be the easiest thing in the world. You can be 'lazy' like some of us that EBF and co-sleep and not get up at night. Trust me, if your dc and you get really comfy-cozy bfing lying down, you will get 'lazy' too.

Laziness aside, it is the most endearing, wonderful experience I have ever had in my life. I love the moments she is nursing and I am NAK or reading or something and I realize she has stopped. I look down and she is just looking at me, studying my face, gently touching and exploring my arm. I smile and don't say a thing and her eyes just smile back and then that beautiful happy grin appears. I reach out my hand and spread my fingers and she reaches up and gently explores each finger until her hand is facing mine, palm to palm. At night when all the lights are down and there is only the warm flicker of the fire (or the soft light of the monitor ), it is only her and I and we have those moments, just staring into each other's eyes, not uttering a single sound. There is this primal tug in my heart, in every fiber of my body and soul, where I KNOW this is what I should be doing and where I should be. There is nothing on this planet, in this universe, that could possibly break the bond of that moment. If this is wrong to be with my child like this, I don't want to be right.
