Just seen a video of a British woman who is STILL breastfeeding her daughter who is nearly 8 years old! Sorry, but I think that is just beyond gross. Her justification is that it increases IQ. Never mind that - what deeper psychological issues are going on here? When will she stop - when her daughter gets married? Sends shivers down my spine....

Don't know - unles that's her response to help justify it - I can't imagine she gets many people who say 'wow, that's great, what a caring, nurturing mother you are!' My first response was the title of this thread. And if breast milk was so beneficial, I would rather pump it and give it to them that way. Even then, I don't think I would want to be lactating for 8 years - no thank you!

That`s gross. I have an 8 yr old, and I would NOT see myself breastfeeding her. She`s almost 5ft. My son wasn`t breastfed and he scored better than the other pre k kids. Is there even scientific evidence that breast milk till that age actually gives a higher iq?

I think that is just wrong ... That is WAYYYYY too long for someone to breast fed! All 3 of my kiddos were bottle fed & my 2nd grader tested ahead of most 4/5 graders!

Yeah I agree with you. That is way to long to be breast feeding. I know not to watch any video like that. LOL
