    Okay... no. Kids need to start separating a bit earlier on than that. I`m just imagining the panic attacks when those kids get older and they DON`T have their mom or her breasts. And how much teasing do they get at school for this?

    from what I heard, there is a close bond between mom and child when she is breastfeeding. I think that that mom is selfish and does not want to give up that bond.
    Breastfeeding is designed for babies because babies can not chew solid foods, and they need liguid nourshiment. But after children start to get their teeth and develop motor skills, they need to eat solid foods. Heck, even animals start to push away their young once they get too old to breastfeed.
    And anyway, that mom saying that giving up breastfeeding whould be her childs choice, wtf, there are some decisons that should not be made by kids, she needs to be the adult and say enough is enough and stop breastfeeding her kid.
    Unless that kid does not remember that part of her childhood when she grows up, she is gonna have some serious issues.

    Damn I didn`t think they were going to show it as much as they did. I`ve seen babies up to about 1 1/2 breastfeed, but 8 looks creepy. The World Health Organisation recommends that women breastfeed (if they are able) children for about 2 years...I wonder what they think of 8, considering they are alot more psychologically complex than a 2yo. I think they recommend 2 years as it is often the best source of food many 3rd world children will have access to.

    I believe you are meant to raise people, not children. You`re only a child for maybe 13-14 years tops? Although some ppl try well into their 20`s and 30`s...Most people will be adults for 50-60 years or more.

    That woman said something about `this country is repressed`, or whatever...no, it is about letting go of your babies and letting them out in the world. As for letting the child decide when to stop...yeah let your kids make all their own decisions and they`ll eat nothing but junk food.

    As a breastfeeding mom, I see nothing wrong with this. Of course the kids are going to want to stop eventually, so what`s wrong with providing them with the best possible food a mother can give? Too many people view breastfeeding as something sexual, and it`s not (except in the case of that dad...)

    i had to stop watching or stab myself in the neck with this fork(fork in hand hard to type) win the older daughter said it was better then mangoes. it was kind of creepy up till then but win they sart describing how it tastes...

    i like to see people challenge the norm with ther own life but win you are raising children you shouldnt do things that will potentially make them a out cast for the rest of ther life. i just see a mother who cant let go. one of you freaky cat lovers mail her a kitten or something.

    not so she can breast feed it, to give her something to do other then damaging other people with her obsession.

    letting young kids make all the decisions in ther life creates the worst kind of hippies.

    Those kids seemed to think that people should breastfeed for their entire life, that`s not really a good idea, is it?
    And not to mention that those girls were WAY too obsessed with their mom`s boobs. I mean, she even said that they touched them and talked to them, they memorized every detail of her breasts, drawing pictures and giving them names... that is just really bad. Them getting nutrients is one thing (not to mention that they could get every single mineral and nutrient they need in regular foods) but to have them so obsessed over her breasts... that`s just unhealthy.

    My wife breast fed until our daughter was one. I know you were supposed to keep going until two, but when they start talking, it gets creepy. If others want to go until two, I have no problem with it.

    Now, three and up (especially 8!) is damaging for the child mentally and socially and is simply the greediness of the Mother, wanting to keep her kids as babies, for as long as possible.

    I think it is akin to child abuse and she should have her kids taken away before too much damage is done (If it`s not already too late...).

    Dear lord, I am disgusted. I agree there`s nothing wrong with breast feeding, doesn`t matter whether its in public or in private. What I don`t agree with is an eight year old kid being latched on to the tit. This has gone way past nutrition and clearly landed on emotional co-dependency. These kids will grow up to be that person that is always all about their mom. Ever met anyone that is like that? "Mom this and mom that..." it sucks. Who the hell wants to be around someone that is still attached to the umbilical cord? Reminds me of the school`s principal from the Simpsons.

    I`ve seen this before. I do agree with breast feeding in general as it is important for nutrion and bonding...but 8 yrs old...comon. How about you bond by actually spending some time with your breasts in your shirt. As for the "It`s not something sexual" comment, no, it`s not..for a baby. When I was 8 I knew what sex was, I had sexual feelings and thoughts, even if they were of a stunted nature. So at 8 years old they may not see it that way...but I think it could have some lasting effects on their sexual developement as they grow older. Unfortunately this is not a common case so can`t really be studied whether that will be the case or not.

WTF were those parents thinking? These kids have to go out and live in the world eventually and they are going to have to deal with this poo for the rest of their lives. Irresponsible parents.

So many people don`t know that nowadays and that`s why you have babies screaming in your ear when at the grocery store because they want some candy or something...

    People need to relax... And it`s incredibly dumb to say that the little girl will grow up to be a lesbian. I used to think breast-feeding old kids was gross, but to be honest, this video makes me reconsider. Other animals breast-feed until the young ones feel the need to stop. It is the same case with this woman. Her first child stopped at the age of 5 on her own and the second one seems like she will stop soon as well. There is nothing sexual about breast-feeding and there is nothing gross about an innocent child saying she likes the taste of it.

    You`re missing the point. The point is that it`s screwing up the children`s mental development.
    Just think of the signals that are being sent to these children.
    That mother needs help, honestly.
    The obsession with the breasts is far beyond reason.
    Children draw what`s in their heads and if they draw so many pictures of breast-feeding it shows how much it occupies their thoughts.
    There`s nothing right about it.

    I`m not so sure we have the right to say this is WRONG, per se...

    But it is recommended to only do this for two years until the children can eat solid foods. Yes, it is the best nourishment - but as newborns we are most susceptible to germs attacking us because our immune systems are not mature, so we need the antibodies the mother`s milk provides until we have a higher effective immune response as we get older - CERTAINLY by age 8 that has occurred.

    The mother probably has letting go issues and is being irresponsible having CHILDREN make such a decision of when to stop breast feeding.

    And those poor children don`t know any better - I`m sure this, erm, extended practice provides a closer bond/relationship between the mother and her two children, but this only strengthens the idea that they will have great difficulty leaving her behind - and the comfort breastfeeding provides - as they venture out into adult-hood. This could very well result in mental problems...

    Has anyone read "The Haj", by Leon Uris? Not a great book, but it describes a society (Bedouin Arab, I think--not sure if they still do it, or if they all did it or anything) where breastfeeding children till a pretty late age was common.

    This isn`t about Muslims, you ignorant morons.

    And speaking of ignorant morons... hasn`t anyone heard of BREAST PUMPS? Anyone can argue that breast milk provides the best nutrition for kids, but that doesn`t mean the kid has to be sucking directly on their mum`s breasts. And did you see that they drew their mom completely naked in their drawings? If she breastfeeds them naked too, social services might want to step in after all.

    I think the time to cut off breastfeeding is when they start remembering for the future. I don`t remember being breastfed, which is a good thing.

    For young toddlers, though, breastfeeding is very healthy and natural. Not for 5 and 8-year-olds, though. 3 is understandable, but that`s about where it should be cut off.

    "Bekll; FOR drat SAKES, WHAT THE drat IS YOUR dratING PROBLEM?! ASSUMING THAT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE IGNORANT MORONS WHO BREAST FEED THEIR KIDS UNTIL THEY HIT MENOPAUSE?! What about muslims?! Do you see Christians strapping bombs to themselves to kill `infidels`? NO!!!! muslims kill everyone who doesn`t agree with islam, and yet you people still think Christians are the real problem?!?!?!......"

    *laughs* You have anger management issues. :-D

    Anyway, I never said that. If you inferred correctly I was saying that they WERE in fact Christians and being theists in the first place made them more susceptible to have strange customs and to have a belief in something despite evidence to the contrary (e.g., that breastfeeding children is healthy despite its very possible negative effects in the long run).

    Also, Muslims and Christians and other theists are all equally deluded regardless of how extreme they go in practices for their faith.

    katie_demani is correct. These are not Christians. These are Pagans. So let`s stop the religion bashing.

    Settle for this- Religion is all fine and dandy up until it is used to harm others. Extremists are wrong, but so long as one person`s belief does not harm another person in any way, let`s learn some tolerance.

    Will-o-wisp... up until the broadcast, I imagine the kids at school didn`t know, unless they were told by the children. It`s not like the mother goes to their school and flops it out in front of everyone. (I am hoping not, anyway)

    When the girls were painting pictures of their mother`s breasts, didn`t the mom say her nipples weren`t that long? Ummm, yeah - towards the end you can see how long they are - it could poke someone`s eye out!

    "Of course the kids are going to want to stop eventually, so what`s wrong with providing them with the best possible food a mother can give?"

    How about the immense teasing that your child will encounter in school? Even if they decide to stop breastfeeding after they`re teased, this is something that will follow your child around for many years.

    Or what happens if your child decides not to stop breastfeeding? Kid goes to college and gets freaked out because something they always had and relied on is no longer there. Or, heaven forbid, the child decides not to go to college because they won`t be able to breastfeed.

    This could have some awful impacts in the kid`s life. Cut the cord already!

    WTF.

    Allright - one topic at a time.
    1. Breastfeeding is neither disgusting or sexual. It is normal and perfectly natural up till around the age of three. Eight is...just plain strange.
    2. This has nothing to do with this families religious beliefs. *I* am not Christian and I have no intents of slinging mud on the religion just because of one family`s extremely strange behaviors. The fighting on this level needs to stop. Shame on you.

    - Disturbing to me, seeing this woman breastfeed her much-too-old children.
    - Disturbing that it has been shown on TV
    - Disturbing that she let`s her children decide when to stop (do the also decidee when to go to bed, og when to behave badly or when to trash the house etc?)
    - Disturbing that they are so dependant on the breasts..

    All in all.. DISTURBING!!

    Ummmm...odd.
    I agree, the drawings are creepy. I know that they`re "developing a bond" or something, but it seems like they`re getting a bit too attached. I mean I could understand breastfeeding a 4 year old at most but an 8 year old? I mean I know the mom wants to let her kids choose but if it was me I would just stop. Those kids are gonna be reeeaaaally messed up when they`re teens. They will probably get really nervous at weird times but their mom won`t be there to comfort them so they will probably freak out and end up huddled in a corner. And please tell me I`m not the only one who would laugh if they were doing that while they were adults...

    I personally wouldn`t nurse that long, but I think that if it works for their family who is anyone else to tell them they are weird? I nursed my son until he was about 18 or 19 months old, and only stopped because some of my family members were giving me a hard time about it. Looking back I probably would have continued at least another 6 months or so. The only problem that I have with the age being so far is that the girl will get some ribbing from peers, and society is going to convince her that there was something wrong with it, even though there wasn`t.

    Breasts are NOT sexual to a child unless someone teaches them that they are. To a breastfed child breasts are food and comfort and love. In fact, the last feedings to go for us other than going to sleep were "boo-boo" feedings, if he got hurt it made him feel better faster than anything else ever did.

    Anyone who thinks breast feeding ones child is gross needs to get their mind out of the gutter.

    Yep
    sure.

    If this was the case why was so much blood shed over god? Why do christians still act out against gays? Why do christians practice spreading around religious propaganda? Religion is a big business with no taxes. The soul reason why we have so much hatred in our society. Stop being so naive and think for yourself.

    The most loving people in this world don`t believe in a one religion, or one at all for that matter. You can`t deny history, or well I guess you can since christians like to deny anything against what the believe in. With not one bit of solid proof to back it.

    breastfeeding is a natural thing tht is healthy for children and it isn`t harming them in anyway. if you are diusgusted by this or think it`s wrong then you`re just a sad sad person and hopefully you don`t have children because you`re a very unfeeling individual.

    ------------

    First of all, people aren`t just "assuming" something because they`re feeling uncomfortable. The children are ALREADY showing signs of being mentally damaged. Their obsession with their mother`s breasts. The little 8 year old girl treats it like it`s a narcotic or something. They draw pictures of it, give it names, talk to it, and not to mention talk ABOUT it. If you don`t think there`s something wrong with that, then you might have some serious problems yourself.

    This makes me think of my cats and how the mother cat continues to nurse her kittens even though they`re all quite large now. It`s like a habit I guess, and the comfort that come from it must be craved. I think if this woman wants to do this, she should be able to, the two children don`t seem very harmed in any way, maybe a little strange, but everyone`s strange in some manner. So yeahh, more power to her if the family is happy. It`s not our business or our choice to make.

    I saw this when it was on tv.. where it "jokes" at the end about the husband joining in, it goes on to say that he actually has done on several occasions, when they were babies. Now THATS wrong, sexualising the whole thing, letting your ugly old husband get his jollies while feeding your child? Thats nasty... And why is she so drating smug about it? Wanna give her a slap for being such a douche. Seriously whens it gonna stop, is it gonna end up like the "bitty" thing in Little Britain?
