One MUM woman shared her opinion when she said she would never wean her daughter because she ‘so loves peace and quiet’.
Mother Bailey shared a video talking about how she will continue to breastfeed her daughter until she turns 18 if it makes her happy and quiet.
While it’s unclear if she joked about breastfeeding until her daughter was an adult, she sparked real debate among viewers.
Bailey says: “People often say: ‘When are you weaning her?’ I said: ‘Never.’
“I like peace and quiet too much.”
She explains how incredibly comfortable breastfeeding can be for your baby.
She said: “Is she crying? Boob in her mouth. She is hungry? Boob in her mouth. Is she teething? Boob in her mouth. Is she whining? Boob in her mouth. And it keeps her quiet and happy.
“Think I’d give up on that? Absolutely not. We will breastfeed her until she turns 18. Maybe longer.”
Bailey calls herself a “crispy mother”, which – according to Kidspot.au – describe a mother who wants to use natural options if they can.
Some commenters completely disagreed with Bailey’s open-minded approach to breastfeeding.
“Uh-no. At some point, it becomes a WEIRD. This comes from someone who has breastfed two babies. Enough is enough,” wrote one critic.
Another said: “I have never understood how mothers can breastfeed once they have teeth in their mouth, let alone after they can eat real food… oh well.”
“You can do it with a bottle and real food,” argued one commenter.
Bailey replied, “Breast milk is real food.”
“Yes mom !! Go on! My oldest is 5 years old and he still takes care of our youngest,” a supportive mother said.
Another added: “I breastfed my daughter until she was 3 years old. I am her comfort and BOTH’s forced weaning is too stressful and overwhelming for ALL of us.”
