Mom Breast Feeds Her 12-Year-Old Son in Public
"I’m one of those moms that’s breastfeeding her kid through puberty'," says Nicole Mullen. Seriously! We can't make this stuff up!
I first saw this subject being discussed on Facebook, and being a guy doesn't give me the right to tell a woman what to do with her body, but as a guy, I don't want my son breast feeding until he's 12 years old either.
As I was reading the article about the lady who breast feeds her 12-year-old son, I was thinking this has to be a joke. But the more I read, the more I realized she is definitely off her rocker.
And again, I'm not judging, but maybe breast feeding your 12-year-old son at the movie theater waiting to buy tickets to "X-Men" probably isn't the best time to do it. And encouraging your breast feeding son "not to shave" because "it feels better to feed him in public" because you "can feel his facial hair coming in" might be a sign to STOP letting him suckle you.
She goes on to say that she will continue to breast feed her son until her body stops producing milk. I hope that will be before her son gets his first girlfriend, or that could be a bit awkward.
I'd really like to know what the father (if he's involved) has to say about all this. I know I wouldn't feel comfortable with my son breast feeding until he's 12 years-old.
She was recently on a radio show discussing this, take a listen -- forward to 1:50.
