Are you mom enough? First of all, something must be working because that is one big Kid. I'd put money on the fact that he's sneaking a happy meal in every once in a while... In fact, I'd bet mom there is really nothing more than a glorified milk shake.
Honestly that 3 year old is 4 and half feet tall!
This Breaks the Norms of our Society and thus, I have a knee jerk reaction to it. The truth is that I am not educated enough to have a really informed decision about it. However, as a father of 4 I can say that it would seem that it would have been unhealthy for my kids. Especially my boys.
It's not Sexual now for this little fellow and it would be ludicrous to suggest that it is... but if you are still milking at mom's breast at 5 and 6... then when it does come time for Sex and Bada-Bing... Bada-Bow... he's confronted with them in an entirely different way, in an entirely different setting... Well, then that could become just a little bit awkward.
The real issue is how people have decided that it is Just Okay to bring this out into the PUBLIC... that no one takes into consideration how there public actions are going to affect those around them.
I know that you have to breast feed and that it is your God given right (if you believe in God that is) and you also have the right to do it right out in front of God and Everyone else... BUT... and this is something that people have forgotten... just because you have the RIGHT doesn't mean that it's the right thing to do.
We used to be discrete... not because we were ashamed or embarrassed but because we were Considerate of others.
For instance, I have the right to Pick my nose and scratch my testicles wherever I choose... but I choose to attend to my basic hygiene needs in Private...
It doesn't hurt me to go to the restroom and blow my nose and adjust my 'self'... and then when I'm finished... I wash my hands and rejoin Society...
Ladies, it wouldn't hurt you to breast feed discretely... we don't mind... most of us... but if the child has to get off his bike and bend down to reach you... maybe it would be best if you found a quiet place... it's not like you can keep typing or even walking for that matter while they are latched on.... especially if the child in question weighs as much as you do.
