I agree D. A marriage breakdown bc of breast feeding tells me there's bigger issues than that. As for the whole jealous thing - on one hand I understand it must for hard for a person whose partner bfs a lot and in the first few months is all about the child. But really? isn't that just being a parent? I ff my kids and pretty much every moment was about them for a good 2 years of their life....

It was ranked one of the lowest in the world in 2005. The article Headoverfeat quoted mentioned the study done in Kenya in 2002. So therefore I agree that in KENYA where standard of living is so low and that it is predicted that it's not going to improve in a hurry then I would say that the statistics have a great impact in this developing country, however, it is not accurate to then relate these statistics to those living in the developed countries.
Considering children would only be having a small feed 1/2 times a day at the age of 4 onwards, and where their diet/nutrition/immune systems are supported by clean water, food, hygiene and the availability of medicines etc, therefore I do believe that breastfeeding at the age of 4 onwards would not have a significant impact on a child's health.
The only time I would doubt this would be if the child is having several good feeds a day and/or living in third world conditions as that of the children in Kenya at the time of that study.

I remember an article by a man who wanted his wife to stop breastfeeding because he missed out on "his" boobs. The entire thing reaked of control issues and possessivness of his wife's body.
I think people would have to be living on cloud cuckoo to think that things won't change once baby arrives. I think a marriage will inevitibly come to a crashing end if there is no patience or understanding for a mother's new role and just how time-consuming motherhood is, whether a baby is breastfed or fed with formula!

Yeah I find it creepy tbh. A man who wants to stop his own child feeding so he can have boobs for himself.

Seeing the woman as a possession? Object? Boobs as sexual objects only? Odd!

i dont think the mothers age really plays apart, ME PERSONALLY i wouldnt still be brestfeeding a 4 year old, i have a family member who still brestfed her 4 year old daughter, which sure fine if thats what you want to do thats your choice, but her daughter would just walk up to her and pull her boob out and start sucking away, did not matter where they were, as much as I think that breast feeding in public gets a bad wrap, i still feel you have to be mindful of those around you, its a little uncomfortable when your standing having a conversation and whoop out pops a boob, i guess im abit more of a prude and am abit more discreet about feeding in public, lol
but each to their own i say,
personally as soon as they have teeth theres no way there on my boob lol
