I saw my 9 year old "breastfeeding" over the weekend, and I nearly broke down in tears.
Please don't judge me just yet, its not what you think.
I fully support breastfeeding. I have read the pamphlets, watched the videos, talked with the doctors, and helped my wife as she has nursed each of our babies. Breastfeeding is simply the best, most natural way for babies to feed. It provides lots of benefits for both mom and baby. I want my children to reap the benefits of breast feeding, and I want them as they grow to see it as a natural healthy part of the care of a baby.
So, lets discuss the events of the weekend. I recognize that there are two pars o this story: my daughters actions, and my reaction. Lets start with her actions, with a little background.
