Thembisa, you are the mother of your child. That means you are there not to give in to every demand, but to nurture, educate & guide the child. My advice to you is to be that parent, and stop trying to please the toddler and let it adapt as a human being is supposed to. Stop trying to be a cow, the breast-feeding cycle is over - move on now already.
I wonder the capability of you being a mother if you are unable to figure this one out.
@ Mr. P: what a typical male response. I would think that its exactly the capability of her skills as her mom that would make her ask this question. Its comments like yours that make mom feel judged and unable to cope.
You sir (Mr P), are an idiot.
If a simple comment makes you feel judged and unable to cope you should not me a parent. To be a mother you need to be resilient to comments and know that your decisions are the right one. To come on to a forum such as this and ask a questions such as this shows a complete lack of support structure within your life. The need for approval or answers from complete strangers and even the crumbling and doubting yourself from stranger shows a complete lack of self-esteem and trust within your own mind. How is your child supposed to grow up and rely on you when you aren’t even able to understand yourself and your insecurities?
It must be wonderful to be so perfect Mr. P. I am sure you have never doubted yourself in your entire life, or needed any advice.
I find the keyboard warrior side of you amusing if not pathetic.
Your comment is not 'simple' as you allude to, but judgmental. Moreover, you are judging a person you do not know hiding behind an alias in an online forum which says a hell of a lot more about your own insecurities than this lady asking for advice from a professional and possibly mother's in similar situations.
Your 'know-it-all' attitude smacks of (unfounded) arrogance hiding what is a complete lack of understanding and knowledge of the situation or advice sought.
As for judging other people's self-esteem, social, cultural and personal surroundings from a one-paragraph question by the author also shows me that you are not only ignorant, but a self-righteous fool.
I can only hope you are not a parent but if you are, I can only hope your own children will learn that there is no such thing as a stupid question - only stupid people especially those who ridicule the ones brave enough to ask!
I ensure that my when I have a problem and do seek advise it is from people that follow the same parental guidelines that I adhere too, not a bunch of complete strangers on some website. My support structure (parents, friends, siblings, nurses etc.) are my support structure. They know my needs are what I am experiencing. They can give me the best advice and help when needed, not some idiot on a forum. You people are too quick to play the victim, you child will mimic your insecurity and doubt.
Ummm " 2 year 7 months baby, who I stopped breastfeeding at four month. Lately she enjoys sucking my nipples,"
how did she start suckling again at 2 years 7 months when she hasn't been on the breast since 4 months.
And exactly what makes your support structure better than those professionals that lend their expertise to an online forum? The fact that they 'prescribe' to your own belief's? The fact that they are immediately available to you via a phone call or jog across the street? Has it occured to you that not everyone a) might prescribe to your belief system and those you follow and b) such advice and support structures are not as readily available as yours are?
Again, your unjustified judgmental attitude sitting behind a keyboard and alias tells me personally everything I need to know about how has self-esteem issues.
But I have said what I wanted to say - the subject is closed from my side.
Mr P, are you not also then just some idiot from a forum?
how disappointing ........ and there i was thinking we were going to hear something useful, or at least interesting on the subject of breastfeeding an older child.
I know I'm going to get some heat for this, but frankly I don't think it is appropriate to breastfeed, or allow your child to suckle at that age. There is no nutritional benefit to it, and its just not right. In my opinion beyond 18 months (at best) is not appropriate and such behavior must be strongly discouraged (and stopped!).
PS: Mr P is clearly an idiot. What is he doing trolling through this forum when he is so against research and advice from anyone other than his immediate family?? Moron of the highest caliber. Leave him be, he doesn't have two brain cells to rub together (and from the way he writes he's clearly uneducated).
