This is just my opinion and experience. No offense to anyone. But we should be able to feed our children wherever, and whenever. Just like a bottlefed baby or toddler.

Please, it is offensive to feed toddlers in public, and they should all be fed discreetly. that is an in your face about breast feeding. They aren't sexual only, but don't kid yourself and say they are only for feeding kids. God made them like he did for a reason. That is all I will say. Also my babies were off the bottle at age 1 as they should be. and on a sippy cup.

The first paragraph, sure. The complete article and the accompanying chart addresses at what ages, in what quantities, and spaced across how many meals, real food should be introduced - starting at six months, exactly as the poster you quoted described. There's even a line at the bottom of the chart advising what additions to make for non-breastfed children.

I realize this wasn't you, but, in the situation you described, your DD would have been doing this in her own home. When a 20 month old or 2.5 year old goes out to dinner, there is NO, and I repeat NO reason he has to nurse, leave that at home. I don't want to see it, and if you are sitting at certain angles, then yes I can see it.
Then don't look at us and mind your own business!

My response is simple. Good, women should be asked to leave more often.

A toddler has NO reason to nurse in public.....period. If you feel the need to do it, I support the establishment that feels the need to ask you to leave.

Good thing I have the law on my side. Ignorance and misogynist attitudes aren't going to change the way I decide to parent my kids!

Is that how your family worked? You take your 1 year old to the park, he trips and skins his knee, you drive him home and then hug and comfort him?

You're at a party with your 1 year old, a balloon pops and scares him. You leave, drive home, and then let him know it's OK?

I hope you're putting some money aside for psychotherapy, I hear it's expensive.

Federal law, Georgia state law, and Applebee's policy all give this child the right to be fed and comforted in this manner by his mother in public. You can hate it, you can look away, but it doesn't change the law.

And finally, I said 1 year old. This child is 20 months old. He's closer to 1.5 than he is to 2. Calling him something that he isn't is ridiculous.

And young women should keep their bodies covered at least somewhat, young men should pull their pants up, people should not be making out, there are so many things that might be offensive are you as strongly opinionated about other issues?

If we lived in a culture where good nutritious food was scarce then yes by all means extend nursing for your child to have the nutrition he needs. That is not the case here in America. There are plenty of healthy choices available to all of us that would more than meet a 2 year olds needs. I believe that the majority of extended nursers are doing it as a comfort/bonding thing not a nutritional thing. I feel that using food as a comfort sets a child up to look to food for comfort later in life. I would much rather hug my child, or cuddle with them when they are upset and then feed them healthy food at meal time rather than quiet/calm them down with breast milk when they are upset. I never wanted my kids to equate comfort with food. Being fed, even as babies, was always done on a schedule, never when they were upset. I never used food to comfort.

ETA: I feel the same way about extended bottle use also. Bottles should not be used as a source of comfort, and should be gone by the time the child is eating table food regularly.

Hug and cuddle and comfort, sure. Clean the scrape, sure.

Feed him? Really? For a scraped knee or the momentary surprise from a popped balloon???

It is OK. A 20 month old is OK as long as the mom wants to nurse him and the baby still wants to nurse. We aren't talking about a 5 year old in the article - it was a young toddler.

My son self weaned at 11 months. I wish he had continued to nurse - I would have loved to continue burning those extra calories!
Just for clarification, the second year of life starts on the child's first birthday.

And ends when the child turns 2, which this child is still 4 months away from doing.

So this mother is doing exactly what the AAP suggests.
