I do have very smart kids - especially the last one who nursed until he was almost four.

Turning breast feeding into soft porn now? The Old Media like Time is getting really desperate in its effort to remain relevant.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was photoshopped.

I guess you can put Time right there with all the other checkout tabloids that like to shock and make money.
I think 3 years old is too old to still be breast feeding your child.
It no longer is serving the purpose of assisting to stengthen a child's
immunity.

Naturally speaking, no mammal breast feeds this long.
Oh wait, humans do

I had a friend who breastfed her son till he was 3 1/2-4.
It was just as ridiculous to see, as the Time pic.

Got sex toys and potions all over also. Even use it to sell food. Times are tough, think they are going for the basics. (lol)

Then don't do it.

But it really isn't any of your business if someone else chooses to breastfeed for longer, is it?

There are other reasons to breastfeed.

I don't care if someone breastfeeds til their child is 3-4.
Just don't expect me to think it doesn't appear ridiculous at that age.

Bonding should have occurred a while ago....
Intelligence booster - think again.
Recent studies have proved there is little evidence to support such claim.
Loosing wieght on the part of the mother, well there might be something
to that

But your right, bottom line - to each its own

Easy there Cinebar, she's expressing her opinion. She's not telling anyone what to do.

I don't really care how long people choose to breastfeed for. I do think the photo was intentionally provocative.

I support breastfeeding.
Can someone tell me what the benefits are past the first six months to a year?
