Eew! I can't believe I even started to watch that...
I really like Little Britain but this sketch always grosses me out.

Re: Breast feeding at 8 !!

Did anybody watch little angels on BBC Prime there was once a young girl i think 5 years old, and she would always shout i want titty, and when her mum would say no she got aggressive with her mum, and then her mum would give in, and breast feed her. I could not believe my eyes.

Yes, she slapped her mom on her breast when she said no!
I was thinking of that show when I started to watch the video.... I was thinking we need to get the psychologist into that family.

"...better than anything in the world, better than a mango even."

"I'd rather have lots of breast milk than a million melons."

This sounds too good to be true. I've got to try this again.

Also, lol @ the names for each breast.

Re: Breast feeding at 8 !!

Me & the other half went to pick up a friend at the house of someone we had never met before. While we were there their son, who was around 6, wanted to breasfeed. Next thing we know he's latched on & feeding. The way it happend was just so wrong & everyone in the room felt so uncomfortable. Believe me I am pro breast feeding for babies & small kids but this was just not right.

Re: Breast feeding at 8 !!

I haven't watched the clips, but think it is child abuse. Who is benefiting from this? The child is surely not, the mother? Maybe

Re: Breast feeding at 8 !!

I remember those people on some chat show. Freaks, honestly. They were claiming it was helping their children to be independant, etc, but basically it seemed painfully obvious that these were the types of parents who couldn't accept the fact that their baby had become a child. And parading the kids on TV? Because that's not going to get them a lot of stick of school...
And frankly, in each case, the kids were little ****s.

My god, what a horrible situation to be in. Last year we where in Conny Land, and was on the train that goes around the fun park, and as we where passing the eating area a women was breast feeding her boy, and he looked to be around 5, or 6 i told my husband who had a look, and we where both speechless for quite sometime we just could not believe our eyes.

Re: Breast feeding at 8 !!

Huh, I didn't think women lactated for that long after pregnancy. What am I missing here? And does this mean that I can feel less guilty about using cow milk, that I'm not depriving some poor calf who got made into schnitzel or something? (I try not to eat meat).

Re: Breast feeding at 8 !!

just for the record, women can lactate for as long as the milk is being removed from the breast. It is a supply and demand system, the more often the baby feeds the more the breast produces.

The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding (that is nothing else for the baby) for the first six months and then to continue breastfeeding for the first two years of life along with other foods.

I have read studies that non-westernised/ developing cultures, can have a natural weaning age from around 18 months to 7 years.

I am definitely pro-breastfeeding, I have spent over 5 years of my life (3 children) doing it. However I think 8 is very extreme and the families in this case are not doing any favours for the kids. I remember doing a double take the first time I saw a toddler breastfeeding.

8 is way too extreme for me

Re: Breast feeding at 8 !!

We went to 19 months with the Mk. 1, which as we moved when she was 15 months seemed a good idea as we were likely to encounter a lot of new bugs moving to a new place. As it was, we didn't even get one protest out of her when Mrs Boris stopped.
With our two, I think six months exclusive breast feeding would have been too long. Mk was nearly chewing her hands off when watching us eat at three months and getting very stroppy at 3 1/2. Mk 2 is about the same and she gets on well with it too. It's a shame they can't manage to do a decent baby rice here that isn't loaded with sugar and cow's milk. The best they can manage is the Nestle Sinlac, but that's not far removed from just flour. It makes me quite unhappy that we have to use a Nestle baby product.

Eeeeewwwww!! That's insane! That girl is too big! I don't see how the mother can do that, that is not normal.

That is crazy! I do have to wonder what people would call that if the mothers were breastfeeding their 8yr old son? Eeewww! That's insane. Whether it's a son or a daughter.

OMG!! No that is not normal or healthy for the kid not at all! He's going to turn into Norman Bates. LOL!

I think it's child abuse too. That's not healthy mentally.

Yes 8 yrs old is too extreme! That's not good. Just like how an 8y old brother and sister would not take baths together, niether of them needs to be breastfeeding on their mom's breast any longer at that age. That is just sooooooooo inapropriate and wrong on many levels.
