Not giving a hoot one way or another about This photo. I'm understanding more and more the benefits of extended breastfeeding. That being said I question the motives and judgement of this mother who put her child in the public limelight with this controversial photo.
Just read about a mums' 3.5 year old breastfeeding DD's reaction to the photo:
"oh no! That's not good! It's not safe to stand on a chair"
If I see a mother feeding her child (either BF or FF) I flash a great big smile - because for some women that may have been the hardest thing for them to do that day.
Where I see judgement past is here, online (like BH or FB) where people can spew rubbish out without any real world repercussions such as a quick witted reply etc. here, your business is my business..especially in matters so controversial!
Yet - it wasn't another mother that started it - it was the media! Oh my.
And Vicpark - you have sexualised BF by using the term sucking. That toddler is consuming food - he is feeding.
Sorry I wanted to come back and say I wasn't laughing at you vic park just laughing at the fact that their was a photo that basically matched your description.
