I dont think what she said was a big enough deal to stop talking to her. Seemed innocent to me. She just didnt know and asked a question.

Quoting Colt's mommy:" Or that women breastfeed for sexual pleasure and it's child molestation. "


lo fucking l.



some dude commented on my friend's status about NIP that women only do it for attention & 'no one wants to see that shit at the dinner table.' Bet your ass I commented. Stupid fuckers.

Quoting Supafly★TKO:" You'd be surprised at what people get told. My stepsister's son's pedi said if you don't breastfeed for at least 6 months, the baby does not get any benefit from it whatsoever. :?"


I doubt that was what was said. Both statements are SO wrong. Not a little bit wrong. I think there was a misunderstanding.

Quoting Mrs. Galeforce:" I had this girl, not even going to call my friend asked me today if I still breast fed, while I was breastfeeding ... [snip!] ... Shes also on drugs im pretty sure. So gonna go ahead and NOT hang out with her ever again. Its been a long time since I have."


Well that isn't HORRIBLE....I have heard worse from my family doctor. She thinks that anyone who bf's past a year is doing it for their own selfish benefit, not because the child actually still wants to bf lol. My DD is 17 months and still breastfeeds...she's on the boob right now as we speak lol.



I am starting to get the "She's too old to be breastfeeding" shit from ppl now too.

She believes him, though. I just told her that even one nursing session gives nutrients and antibodies that formula doesn't have and left it at that.

:!: My OB tells you to stop nursing if/when you become pregnant again. Thankfully that issue didn't come up for me because I would not have stopped, especially if LO was under 12 months.

She probably doesn't want to BF and is blaming her decision on medical advice.

That's possible since she is a big partier and not exactly a stellar parent. But sadly, ignorance about breastfeeding is not uncommon.

It sounds like you were already defensive about the topic and made it bigger than it was. Sounds like she didn't know how long you can breastfeed and asked a question.



I didn't know the national average was 4 yrs old. I always thought it was gross to breastfeed past 1 1/2 and that it wasn't normal. I wasn't educated about it all. Though I wasn't able to breastfeed anyways with either kid. If I had been I still pbly would have stopped at 1 1/2.

A friend of ours lost her shit when I told her my LO was still breastfeeding at like 22 months-ish because her pedi had told her that breastfeeding after two was harmful and dangerous.

I had a girl tell my "your Tits are for your man not your kids". Than her friend said I was gonna get my child drunk from a glass of wine I had 5 hours before since all alcohol stays in your system for 30 days. Than they went on for awhile about how sick it is to BF. People are just so ignorant now a days.
