I've had breast milk before, put in a special sort of bottle. It tasted fine to me (and before anyone says "ew" I wasn't chugging out of the bottle or anything, I just put a dot on my finger).

Same.

This thread keeps reminding me of Grapes of Wrath (which I hated far more than the TIME cover).

But are we any more likely to breastfeed our K-5s?

though the magazine has the same contents, they just picked a less scandalous cover. i'm kinda like ashley in that i wasn't breastfed (gave me colic) so i don't really have any personal experiences to share. i do know though that while it's been said moms stop breastfeeding too early these days, but feeding until they're four, five, etc. is over-the-top. like anitram said, as they get to the point where they start to socialise with other kids, stuff like this can ostracise them. and all this just to, what? give the mom just a teensy bit more bonding time with her kid? it just seems overly clingy to me when it gets to the point where it can affect a child's emotional development.

to over-simplify it, once a kid can walk up to their mother and go "mommy, i'm hungry", it's time for them to be weaned and start eating real food.

It's not even about scandalous, it's about putting things that apparently sell better than actual news on the cover. Americans don't want to know about it, apparently. The Daily Show recently had a bit on this comparing multiple issues from US and international.

Europe: ECONOMIC SHIT IS GOING DOWN, SON

America: Don't Worry About Being Worried, You Guys! Anxiety is Good For You!

I, uh, may have paraphrased a bit.

I think it's important for children to learn to feed themselves and not be reliant on their mothers, though there aren't necessarily any medical disadvantages to breastfeeding for prolonged periods of time. Breast feeding can be an emotional thing for the mother, but most of what I've seen is that once a kid is going to pre-school or day care, they're weaned to the bottle or a cup instead. It's just not practical to continue on when your kid is away from you for multiple hours a day and there's no reason for it in today's society.

My mom didn't breast feed either, but that was because she was a smoker.

Yes, it must be some kind of emotional attachment thing. If it's for the nutrition, they could just pump and not have their lives (and their child's life) dictated by a feeding schedule. If it's supposedly more "natural" to breastfeed indefinitely....well I beg to differ, I don't see animals feeding their young indefinitely just because they can. Most of the dog litters I've dealt with the mother wants nothing to do with beyond 6 weeks or so! I used to raise guinea pigs (though didn't breed them) and they are born with their eyes open and a full set of teeth.

Reading bit into the cover, seems like making a child breast feed at that age is incredibly narcissistic.

The more my peers are having babies and acting like they are the first woman ever to birth and raise a child, the more I feel like a *lot* of parenting practices these days are incredibly narcissistic.

Exact same thing with a number of people that I know. Glad I'm not the only one, was beginning to think that *I* was crazy, not them.

Phil and I are keeping a running list of "annoying shit we are NOT going to do/say/act like when we have kids". I think for us it helps raising several dogs that already come with a bad rap. I already know what it feels like to have to assume that everyone around us does *not* like my dog, does not find him cute or handsome, wants nothing to do with him. I won't be expecting that the entire world thinks my baby is the cutest most precious thing ever even if I think so.

It's good to know more people actually think like I do!

I couldn't agree more. It's one of the reasons I want to adopt. Too many parents think that just because they gave birth suddenly their kid is God's gift to the world. People who upload 300 pictures of a single baby to facebook, and can't fathom why someone wouldn't want them to bring their kid to a party/wedding because their kid is precious and everybody must love it the way they do. There's this new "attachment parenting" fad where mothers believe their kids should sleep with them continuously for years and believe that all sitters are a bad thing and won't be separated from their child.

I have such a mental list going too!

The last one that I can think of that really annoyed me was when I was visiting a friend who had just had a baby a month earlier. She told me that I won't ever understand what it means to be tired until I've had a baby. Mind you this is when I was still working at my old firm, clocking about 80-90 hours a week, all year, and that particular week I had two days when I had shown up to work at 8 am and stayed until 3 am, gone home to sleep for 2 hours and was back the next day. AND I drove 2.5 hrs (in each direction) to go and see her on the afternoon of the one day I wasn't in the office. I mean, really.
