Her newborn and her not-so-newborn, a 6-year-old. Is this horrifying or a loving bond?

*Shrugs* my mom breastfed me until i was four..... And i turned out fine for the most part.... It`s a natural thing, and apparently a thing that`s more prevalent in Europe, at least according to doctors that had known about it when i was little.... At about six, though, she should be weaning him off of it, or there might be problems, especially concerning enmeshment.

Best part: "`I don`t worry about what other children will say, because I know the children he hangs around with,` says Amanda. `The only way they are going to find out is if their ­parents tell them.`"

..Or maybe they`ll find out when there`s PICTURES OF HIM BREASTFEEDING IN THE NEWS. Kids have the internet these days.. I guarantee sooner or later some other kid he knows will come across this, and he will never live it down.

If you`re enjoying breast feeding your child so much, clearly you have a problem... Yes that kid is going to be psychologically and sexually screwed up for life...

1. This kid is going to have serious issues and may even end up mudering his mum as some form of resentment for this article and not making him stop sooner.

2. That kid looks like his teeth are pretty bad.

"breast feed an older child because of some terrible side-effect that I don`t know of?"
I`m going to go out on a limb here and say there are probably other manifestations of "hidin` behind Mommy`s skirt" syndrome but, the breast feeding is just the one which people noticed enough to ask about.

I have nothing against people being close but, I think normal social development needs one to stop somewhere about when the kid has teeth enough to chew meat.

@mutt-mutt

aside from the really creepy aspects of a kid old enough to get up and microwave his own damn breakfast being allowed (encouraged?) to breastfeed, don`t you think that its wrong to teach, by example, that a woman, a mother, is nothing more than a walking soda fountain? don`t you find that aspect of the story at all sexist? aren`t you more than a sum of your female parts? of course you are.

i do notice your age and hope that age and more female experience will bring some wisdom. best of luck to you.

"Amanda — who is on maternity leave from her work as a children’s party entertainer — is, however, well aware that she is in a very small minority"

Let me stress that again: "ON MATERNITY LEAVE FROM HER WORK AS A CHILDREN`S PARTY ENTERTAINER"!!!!

I`m not sayin`, I`m jut sayin`...

Besides "cos it`s creepy", does anyone have any compelling arguments to why this is sooooo wrong? How is it bad, or wrong...? How does this stunt, physically, spiritually, or mentally? Is it wrong because of our "values" system- or is it wrong to breast feed an older child because of some terrible side-effect that I don`t know of?

"Don`t want to get out of bed" is an extremely poor excuse to breastfeed your freaking six year old. If you`re old enough to remember it as an adult, you should not be breastfeeding.

Well, yes, I bet he does. No surprise there.

WHO reccomend feeding until at least two years old. I can see going to past three is not a bad idea but six does strike me as a bit old. she really needs to let go and accept her baby is growing up.

I personally think it`s disgusting either way. I don`t think there`s anything wrong with it when others do it, I just couldn`t myself.

I really think 6 years is beyond the limit really, she`s doing it because she can`t let go. She is doing her son no favours.
I really have no problem with breastfeeding up until a child is coming out of the `toddler` phase, beyond that, in the developed world, there is no real need.
I breastfed mine up to one year. but even feeding a 9-10 month old I got dissaproving stares. I may have done one more year at the most but for the social pressure of stopping. might have shed a few more pounds too if i`d have ignored the critics...damn.

creepy. I think it should stop right after it`s no longer a necessity for the child`s health.

Had a schoolmate that was breastfed until he turned 9. He quit that shortly after it became public knowledge.

Lazy cow is the only way to describe her. Oh it`s a wee bit chilly, better not get my ass out of bed, easier to just lay here and let the baby and a six year old have a shot at my 2 floppy tits. Does she do that for the husband as well when she is to lazy to cook a real meal? That tit sucking 6 yr old is in for a poo kicking when his friends find out. How long before he wants to do more than hold hands with his 7 yr old female friend? The english are just a bunch of sick drats

if your old enough to conciously remeber sucking on your moms breast thats would be the general stop point for me, the kid being able to walk over and ask for it is just drating creepy

Oh wow. That is... somethin` else. She says "Breasts are there for a reason," yeah, but there`s also a reason why they stop producing milk.
I think it`s very telling that she stopped doing it in public. I agree with the Psychologist, that she`s doing it for her benefit rather than the boy`s.

bigfatdynamo: In some parts they do, but from what I`ve seen first hand, it`s only for children that are very, very sick. Not for a healthy boy.

Hmmph, that is so not fair! My mother only breastfed me for the first six months...can`t believe that I`m jealous of a six year old.

Well, someone ought to give her a pump and see if she`ll give him the milk from a cup. If she won`t do it, this is probably more for her benefit than his. She wants to feel needed.

BTW, read the lowest rated comments on the link. There is a woman whose mother was breastfed till she was a teenager! Seriously. Your immune system is most definitely established by that point, and there are no excuses.

It`s unconventional, sure, but who are we to judge? I read some of the comments under the article. I`ve never understood why people get so up in arms about things that have absolutely no effect on them.

A lot of women will say that both the mother and child will know when it`s the right time to stop. I think they both missed that cue a long time ago.
