I think she should breastfeed until SHE wants to stop, or until her CHILD wants to stop.

You're backpedaling.



You did NOT say that you wouldn't feel comfortable breastfeeding then, you said:



"In my opinion and it is just an opinion I think as children start to get teeth and eat solids they should stop being breastfed"



What you said was that ALL kids should stop breastfeeding at that age.

Would I personally breastfeed until 3? No. But is it any of my business what another mother is doing? HELL NO!



Why would you stop breastfeeding just because a child has a set amount of teeth? On the rare occasion there are actually babies born with full sets of teeth. Obviously they still need to nurse. You keep bottle feeding after the teeth come in..
Why wouldn't you keep breastfeeding as well?.

Agreed. It's none of the OP's business how long that mother breastfeeds her child.

If you don't want people to judge you for not breastfeeding, don't go around judging people for breastfeeding their 3 year old... Which is, actually, biologically normal.

I don't agree with what she said at all doesn't matter how old a child is the mother still wants to breastfeed and the child is happy with it then why not? Its not hurting anybody else



I think people need to calm down slightly she probably didn't mean any harm by it and was just asking a question that got under a lot of peoples skin like she said it was just an opinion and people are jumping on her for it, yeah its a bad opinion but like someone else said
"Why not focus your time judging the parents who beat & starve their kids instead of the ones who feed them the best there is for them"
Why don't you focus on that instead of getting annoyed with a girl who expressed an opinion you didn't like

I think it is her decision and it is not up to me to judge what she decides to do with her child. Would I ? No. However, I would pump it and give it to my child in bottle form. - I don't like the idea of a three year old latched on to my tit, sorry.

I do apologize for the overkill comment I posted earlier. I just meant that there are people out there doing things that are a lot worse than what she's doing. The main reasons people find breastfeeding past 1 or 2 unacceptable or weird is because they've let society put those thoughts into their heads. Breastfeeding creates a very strong bond between mother & child. I know all of the nursing mamas I know wouldn't trade it for the world or even 'to get their b**bs back' because with that specific child, when it stops, it stops. It's like when your kids stop giving you hugs lol
