Reblogged: Mayim Bialik: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Finally Stops Breastfeeding

mzvanessa:

I don’t understand all this hype over ‘attachment parenting’ like it’s something new. Baby wearing, natural led child weaning, co sleeping, all of that isn’t new. Our species have been doing these things since the dawn of time. Suddenly people have decided that these things aren’t ‘proper’ and that people who practice ‘attachment parenting’ are weird.
What I want to know is who’s business is it how someone parents? or whether they decide to breastfeed? Or when they decide is right to wean? When did society decide that it’s ok to decide what another person does with their child?
