They're gorgeous pictures - thanks for posting the link!

PMSL at the thought of the Loose Women seeing it - dopey mares would run screaming!

OMG, those are absolutely beautiful. Now, if only DS could look that serene......

actually, must get a picture of us feeding for posterity!

Sorry,but the way I'm feeling they can all bugger off! Ive had it with breastfeeding-have done it far too long and wish someone had told me how to stop a long time ago!

bad night?

misdee Sun 08-May-05 08:27:00

lovely lovely pics.

Thanks for that emkana ... gorgeous pics ...
Makes me all broody for another ... which is what I DON'T want

in the main I think they're lovely shots

BUT I had a markedly different reaction to the pictures of breastfeeding babies to the one or 2 of breastfeeding obvious toddlers, I didn't think they were lovely at all

emkana Sun 08-May-05 11:42:38

Oh come on mud please can't we keep the extended breastfeeding good or bad thing out of this?

For the record, though, I still think these pictures are lovely because they show tenderness and love between mother and child.

And the one with the rather large child proves how you can breastfeed even an older child in public without a breast in sight.

emkana - you said 'what do you think?', sorry I didn't realise that actually meant 'if you think exactly the same as I do then please post', my fault I thought this was a discussion board

hercules Sun 08-May-05 14:04:34

Lovely pictures. I am pleased to see older children being breastfed as well.

hunkermunker Sun 08-May-05 14:06:50

Mud, can I ask what you thought, if not lovely? Were you horrified/revolted/disgusted? Without wishing to put words in your mouth, you understand

I think I felt that the mother simply didn't want to let go of breastfeeding and true babyhood abd I find that sad because a child of that age if thirsty can drink water from a cup

I have this conversation or discussion all the time here, I know that there are a number of very vocal extended breastfeeders, so much so that people like me who supposedly represent the majority view don't even post on this topic so it becomes a 'aren't you fabulous darling, no darling you are fabulous' onesided converastion rhather than a true discussion.

I also find it funny that for most people out there Iam and have always been an extended breastfeeder as I fed all of mine until they could take cow's milk at around a year old. I have no issues with anyone's choice but I am allowed to think what I think and I think breastfeeding a huge child is unecessary

I liked the photos! Thanks

hercules Sun 08-May-05 14:19:18

Err mud, you dont represent the majority. The average age for weaning is four years old.......

hercules Sun 08-May-05 14:21:16

I dont think I could have a discussion with someone who held such a view of me anyway to be honest.

Tommy Sun 08-May-05 14:23:08

I think they're beautiful - all of them. they all show so many different characteristics of feeding - really lovely. Thank you emkana

hercules... is that in the UK or world wide?
