I’ve asked my mom, and she breastfed us for about six months which I think sounds about right. A year is fine, I suppose, but in my book, anything after two is pushing it. No one out there can tell me having a five or eight-year-old eating from your breast is not disturbing! And that’s not even getting into the obvious obsession these girls have with their mom’s breasts. I’m pretty sure I never made drawings of my mother’s breasts, let alone named them: Milky-o and Boobie-o? Give. Me. A. Fucking. Break.
UPDATE: You know, the more I read about this extended breastfeeding business the more I see this is all about the mother and very little about the child. These women don’t want to let their babies grow up and think keeping them latched to their nipples is the solution.
SECOND UPDATE: I just thought about how these girls must feel now two years after that documentary, specially the oldest one. Can you imagine what it must be like at school for them? That “mother” should be whipped!
