What do you think of breastfeeding an 8 year old ?
I saw this video on You Tube & just am wondering what different opinions are ?
My personal opinion is that it is a mother’s job to teach her child to be independent and self-sufficient and by allowing an eight year old to breastfeed you are creating a co-dependent child who will have severe separation anxiety.
Breastfeeding an eight year old is for the mother, not for the child, it is a selfish attempt to force your child to remain a baby and constantly dependent on her. I think that mother enjoys the attention that she gets from her daughters and that is why she continues to allow them to feed.
She is not giving them a chance to grow up though and it’s gonna hurt them in the long run, I mean if they are still breastfeeding at such an old age, they are obviously attached to their mother in an unhealthy way and are being encourage to act like babies. If they child is not obtaining nutrients from the milk any longer (because she is eating the same damn solid food as her mother) then it does nothing to benefit the child and it is a disgusting abuse of her parental power.
It is benefiting the mother, she keeps her girls at arms length all day long, she wants them to be attached to her because it makes her feel special.
It is bloody selfish, it is bad parenting, it is border line child abuse and it is just disgusting.
