But... they're my BOOBS!

I just spent some time on the La Leche League website. I'm trying to psyche myself up (or psyche myself out of? It remains to be seen...) for breastfeeding the Webbean.

I just don't know. I mean, it makes perfect sense to breastfeed for as long as there are actual benefits for the baby - nutrients and whatnot. I just can't understand these women who whine about their two year old child weaning himself, and talking to her LLL cronies about how to LURE him back to the breast! What the fuck? Give the kid some chicken nuggets and call it a day!

I read a bunch of the stories and they just seem so... self-satisfied. Good for you. Your boobs leak a magical substance that will make your child a superhero. Whatever.

I still say if you're old enough to ask for it, maybe you shouldn't get it anymore.

I am also of the "if you're old enough to ask for it, you're too old to have it" school of thought.

Also if your child is so large that they can sit up next to you on the couch while breastfeeding, that ain't good either.
