Tonight? Tonight? L'Chaim

Maybe it's just me, but even if I was breastfeeding too long, I don't think it'd help to have my rabbi describe my breasts as "an attractive cafeteria rather than a scintillating piece of flesh."

Kosher Coupling by Shmuley Boteach: "Moms, Don't Forget to Feed Your Marriages" [beliefnet via jj daddy again. someone's on a roll]

Thanks for bringing this article to my attention. Attitudes like this are part of the reason the US has such a low rate of breast-fed babies.

First of all, breastfeeding an 11-month-old is not "extreme" - that's well within the AAP-recommended year. Second of all, the fact that people insist on seeing breasts only as sex objects makes it difficult for moms to nurse in public.

I agree you shouldn't neglect your sex life, but someone needs to tell the Rabbi that sex and breastfeeding are not mutually exclusive!

[someone needs to get that rabbi into counselling, pronto. I only just read the second page of that article YOW. -ed.]

This guy clearly has some unresolved psychological problem going on.

"Obsession" with breastfeeding "into the 11th month?!" Puhlease. Clearly the Rabbi needs to brush up on the WHO's reccommendation that breastfeeding should continue until AT LEAST 1 year of age, and then as long as mutually desired by mother and child.

Covering up, even in front of your husband? Are you sure this "Rabbi" is not Muslim?

I am breastfeeding my almost 21-month-old. GASP! He even SLEEPS with ME!!! Every NIGHT! And guess what? My husband is 100% supportive, and does not sleep in another room.

How can you complain about a lack of sex, if you're not even willing to share the same bed? WTF?

I think Daddy has a jealousy complex, and should SEEK THERAPY!

[uh, you mean the Rabbi's jealous, right? -ed.}

Yeah, leave me out of this.

Of course, I meant the Rabbi! ;)
