    Please NoCrumping take a deep breath I am currently nursing my 2 year old. It is not sexual abuse and it is certainly what she and I both want. I will NEVER critic your choice to formula feed (if you do so) so please do not come down so harshly on my choice. My choice may not be for you and that is fine, but please remember that telling me that nursing my daughter is gross is like telling me that hugging her is gross. Can't we all just get along?

    I didnt formula feed either of my children. And I didnt use the word "gross" . And much to everyone's dismay, I am educated on and well aware of the research, recommendations and positions of many entities, however, I still disagree with breastfeeding a child in the 3-5 yr age range. Let me repeat, I am well aware of all research, benefits, etc etc etc. And I still disagree. Of course I would never bestowe this view on a parent at work, but, this isn't work, and you aren't parents of a pt. I am truely sorry to offend everyone , but I am entitled to my opinion, without being accused of "not having all the facts" so to speak. This is not a cut and dry subject, as you might agree, so how can you accuse my so called "ignorance" as lack of being educated on the subject? Dont take offense. I am not trying to offend anybody, I guess I have. I apologize. Truce!!!!!!!:smiley_ab
    I sincerely apologize.

    Actually, you did say it was gross.

    a child who is 3-5 years old who still suckles moms breast is JUST NOT RIGHT. And to come back with a comment that "its not just for nourishment" well, that is EVEN MORE gross.
    If you want to continue to believe the world is flat, have at it. But others are just as free to call you uninformed and ignorant on the subject.
