Quoting I love Kenzi:" ive seen posts on there of like a 6 year old pretending to breastfeed a doll even a 12 year old i wouldnt think it was weird but the whole no telling thing really gets me"
Quoting Mama Rice:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" idk I guess it depends on how much a child is ... [snip!] ... around consistently for the first 6-7 weeks. She was full of questions. LOL She never would have tried to nurse him herself."
Quoting .Solange.:" Obviously it's not ''okay'', but there's nothing positive that will come out of calling cps. Make this ... [snip!] ... about in the near future. If you're linking breastfeeding with sexuality, then maybe the 12 year old isn't the problem here."
Quoting 10 til Gwen:" Holy over-reaction. Breastfeeding is either sexual or it's not. She can't have it both ways. If it's ... [snip!] ... me out and I'd be having a chat with the kid and get parents, but my kid wasn't in danger or being abused. No need to call CPS."That's a tad too oversimplified. PLENTY of people would get very upset over someone doing any number of things either to or with their child that they themselves do. I hear people say all.the.time that they spank their kids but no one else better. Hell I know there are people that would throw down with you if they heard you speaking to their child the way THEY speak to their child. So the idea that she'd call CPS for the 12 yr having her toddler suckle her breasts isn't all that outrageous. It's not likely how I would handle it - but it isn't all that crazy. That 12 yr old wasn't breastfeeding & she knew that....so it's not even like the spanking thing. She knew she made no milk & then elicited another child to help keep the secret, so she knew she shouldn't be doing it. It is strange behavior.
