Mom Gets Real About Breastfeeding Toddlers -- & If You Don't Like It, STFU

Ashley Wright schools naysayers on breastfeeding a toddler

Breastfeeding has been a touchy subject for many people. Whether moms are nursing their children in public, or are doing some other "horrifying" task that deserves mean looks, not everyone is comfortable with seeing a mother breastfeed her kid. Well, if you're one of those people, this will likely piss you off. Ashley Wright's "Breastfeeding Toddler Myths" video takes a hard look at common misconceptions in effort to get naysayers to "shut the f*** up."

"Breastfeeding a toddler is a lot of fun."

All right, Mom. I'll take your word for it.

Aside from loving the tea Ashley serves on her Ms. Wrights Way Facebook page, I really enjoyed this video, including all the adorable moments between mama and tot. Mom did a good job of trying to tackle all the negativity surrounding extended breastfeeding -- like poor socialization skills and delayed development -- to prove the choice to nurse your tot doesn't automatically mean doom and gloom.

As Ashley says:

If you're not nursing a toddler, if you have no idea what the f*** that is, just shut the f*** up.

And, unless you're coming over here to get a sample of this titty milk -- to do a scientific analysis on the nutritional content in it -- then just shut the f*** up.

*Mic drop*

I only nursed my 2- and 1-year-old boys until they were 11 months, but that's me. And while I personally wouldn't choose to breastfeed beyond a certain point, I'm certainly not going to throw stones at any mama who does -- or doesn't breastfeed.

It's just not that deep.

Whether you agree with extended breastfeeding or not, I think Mom's video is a reminder to do what you think is best for your baby.
