Unsupportive Support: Cultural Breastfeeding Ignorance...toddlers (Click Here to Read)

This is a great article on lack of support in regard to extended nursing.  I've learned that support would be lovely but I don't need it nor am I afraid of the judgement.  I am proud and grateful for the gift of this time and the nursing relationship I've had thus far with my boys.  To those of you that are offended, what is it that bothers you so much or what are you afraid of?  I'd also love to hear from those of you nursing beyond that time most people are comfortable with.  How are things going for you?

 Much Love, Respect and Support!

This is an excellent article on one of my favorite attachment parenting mamas..Mayim Bialik!
Here's an excerpt from it....I just love her and relate to her so much.  It's amazing when you find a like-minded person in the world that makes you realize you are not alone. Thank you Mayim.  You have my deep respect.

"Our parenting style relies heavily on intuitive knowledge that all mammals are born with: stay close to your baby as much as possible, sleep near them, breastfeed them as if there is no other option, carry them close to your body, and don’t force them to sleep when you want them to sleep or eat when you want them to eat. We believe in honoring the human body and its ability to birth naturally and produce milk, and we believe in not viewing a baby as a manipulator or a clingy dependent being that needs to be made independent as soon as possible. Healthy dependence leads to healthy independence in time. The book includes introductions to human hormones of attachment, birth, breastfeeding, and early bonding, but it basically opens up our home to readers by showing what these principles look like in action. I don’t sugarcoat anything; it’s exhausting to be any kind of parent, and I don’t presume to know how you should parent; I simply share what works for us and how you can implement even parts of an intuitive style to make your life easier and your kids hopefully confident and secure and loved."

Her new book "Beyond the Sling" will be released in March 2012.
