While I know it is always better to rely on instinct and feelings to be a natural mother and get things right, studies that underline the extent to which we are mothering the RIGHT way are always welcome.
Now how many of you have had accusations hurled at you that extended breastfeeding is a sign of your mental ill health or will cause complexes in your children ?
All of us right ?
That is the lot of the woman who walks to the beat of her own guitar and openly breastfeeds her older children in public. You'd have thought people had never seen a couple of middle schoolers suckle before the way some people react.
Well here is some news that I am sure you will enjoy reading, although I doubt it will surprise you any.
Proof that in fact we are saving our children from schizophrenia and a whole host of mental disorders.
Unequivocal evidence that far from showing we are mad extended breastfeeding for as long as you possibly can keeps you kids out of Danvers !!
Show me one disturbed person that wasn't poisoned with formula and I'll eat my own nipple.
Given that many mental disorders do not show up until the late teens and early twenties I think at this point we have no choice other than send the message that those of us who breastfeed our adult children are in fact the only ones who really love their progeny. I mean what kind of mother would condemn her children to mental health issues right ?
