Blossom's 4-Year-Old Son is Done Breastfeeding
MAYIM BIALIK, THE star of "Blossom" and "The Big Bang Theory", pretty much started the whole "attachment parenting" controversy when she revealed that she'd let her son Fred breastfeed as long as he wanted to. Well, Fred is 4 years old now, and he has decided, ON HIS OWN, to stop feeding at the mammary trough. It actually happened this past Thanksgiving.
In an overly-long and self-important message on her website, Mayim says, "Fred was done nursing. Fred weaned. Sweet baby Fred who cared for me as I cared for him: we made it. Fred did not ask about nursing for weeks after that day. And it wasn't until much more recently, it's been three months now since he nursed, that he asked to nurse. But now when he asks, he knows it's funny. That he's a big boy. That he doesn't drink nummies anymore. He's done. Fred weaned. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss being able to latch him on and make it all better. We have other ways to soothe Fred now."
Yes, she apparently calls either her breasts OR the milk from her breasts "NUMMIES". You can read the entire post here.
