No, no, no, no!!!!
I know this will offend some of you, but this whole breast feeding kids till they are almost teenagers is just gross. It actually makes me want to dry retch!
I don't buy the argument that it's all about the kids - bollocks. The mother has issues.
Jamie Lynne Grumet, is featured in this weeks issue of Time magazine, and not surprisingly, the cover has sparked a whole heap of criticism and praise in equal measure.
26 year old Jamie, has told of how she breastfeeds her two children, Aram almost four, and five-year-old adopted son Samuel. GROSS!
Jamie was breastfed herself until she was six and explains, "It's really warm. It's like embracing your mother, like a hug. You feel comforted, nurtured and really, really loved. I had so much self-confidence as a child, and I know it's from that". Ugh.
I'm not anti breast feeding at all. I happily breastfed my kids till they were 12 months. I was not shy to whip out my swollen breasts while out and about when they were babies. I was too lazy for bottles, so that fact they my two latched on from birth, made it nice and easy. But. As soon as they turned one, That. Was. It.
I admit I am actually repulsed now, when I see kids who can walk and talk breastfeeding. It's just unnecessary and looks so wrong.
And God knows what the poor husbands must think!
