Breast Feeding To The Max!

I walk up to what looked liked a party of 2, but when I got there I
was surprised to see a 3 year old sucking on her mothers tit! I saw it
because her mother chose not to use a blanket to cover herself. After
a few moments of awkwardness, I asked if I could get them something to
drink. The mother orders water, then looks down at her daughter and
asks what she would like to drink. The child stops sucking on her
mothers tit to look up at me and tell me she would like a pink
lemonade to drink. Awesome!!!

    Hahahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahahaha. I saw a woman breast feeding her 6 year old once but she at least had the decency to do it right by the restaurant’s front door.

    Define appropriate? As long as the feeding is child led then I don’t see the problem.

    I don’t see any problem with breast feeding as long as both parent and child are comfortable with it, as long as they have the decency to keep it away from where others might find it offensive for the mother to be baring herself to the public.

    I think it’s wildly inappropriate to breastfeed a child that can walk or talk. There’s a certain amount of independence both mother AND child need by that age – what’s going to happen the first day of weaning when the child can actually run and jump and latch onto your tit? Or the first day of preschool? Not healthy. I understand giving your child breastmilk as long as possible, but lip-to-nip needs to stop at a healthy age.

    Serenity: What is so “nasty” about it? There is nothing gross or perverted about breastfeeding your child. Just because North America has sexualized breasts to the point where women are made to feel ashamed of feeding their child in public. That’s what breasts were designed to do-feed a child!
    All my kids “weaned” themselves before they were talking but if others continue what business is it of yours? I was actually sad when my kids grew out of it, it was relaxing and the best way to bond with your child.
    Never heard of any child being traumatized from being breastfed. I think breastfeeding a “too old” child is better than teaching toddlers that breastfeeding is something sexual, shaming, or “nasty”.
