You lost a listener today
I couldn't believe how horribly cruel and mean all of you were to your breastfeeding listeners. Calling them crazy, saying they have no friends. The truth is you are all the ignorant people in this discussion. I've listened to Alice for 14 years. Never again. I'll also be doing everything in my power to get 100's of petitioners to reach out to your sponsors to pull their ads. Shameful is all I have to say. People like you are the reason their is hate in this world. Good job being complete jerks.

I called this morning, frustrated I didn't get to give the following info....
Yes, I called in. I was the the one with the 5 year old breastfeeding. The pediatrician that called irked me like no other. Pediatrician's are not breastfeeding experts. Trying to convince moms to stop nursing after 1 year is ignorant. UNICEF has supported breastfeeding for 2 years or longer for many years now. The American Academy of Pediatrics is encouraging mothers to nurse at least one year and as long after as both mother and baby desire. Breastfeeding toddlers of 3 and 4 is common all over the world. Toddlers who wean themselves around 2-4 years of age are generally MORE independent! I find breasfeeding my toddlers to be delightful. It is a special bonding moment. Her eyes twinkle while she at the breast and she sometimes starts giggling. The following link supports everything I've shared here, and was written by Written by Jack Newman, MD, FRCPC. Anyone who actually takes the time to research with find an onverwhelming amount of material supporting breastfeeding a toddler. http://pediatrics.about.com/cs/breastfeeding/a/bf_toddler.htm

People do the craziest things
Ok, yes, breast feeding is natural and wonderful and a beautiful thing----and maybe I'm just a big ol' nerd--but I kinda think after about 2 it's getting a little dicey. But, who am I to judge? If a woman wants to breast feed until her kid is 15---she can , it's a free country---but she also has to understand that in our culture, she'll get some backlash. I didn't have the opportunity to breast feed my son, as he was adopted at the age of 5 mos---but I still think we're quite securely bonded. OH, and Jamie, I'm releived to hear you let your kid sleep with you---I thought I was the only "bad mom" and needed to "kick the habit" :)
