Just a quick reminder following yesterday's thread

it was fairly ok APART for some women viewers who emailed in with really negative comments. They didn't really address these comments

I was expecting it to have a negative slant, but seemed to put b/f across in a positive light. All of the kids seemed independent, wandering off to friends/family behind the cameras. I liked the shot of the little girl kissing her dad.

I thought it was very good.

Surprisingly positive I thought - they didn't seem to have gone out of their way to find wierdos or anything and the psych woman was also positive.

I think it helped that it was presented by Fern Cotton who had breastfed her kids and obviously didn't think it was wierd - although Philip Schofield tried to hide it I think he came across as anti-long term breastfeeding.

I was surprised by the fact that the average age for giving up BF worldwide is 4 and a half - thats a good message to get across.

I agree, the viewers comments were awful.

Oh yeah, too much CBBC and Top of the Pops in our house

I'm really pleased that this was so positive about extended breastfeeding. And extra pleased because they quoted from an e/mail I sent in yesterday. Yeah!
