Breastfeeding Should NOT Be a Reality Show

Collins Avenue Production Company is known for making drama-filled reality TV shows (like "Dance Moms"). They have no regard for showing the truth in real life situations. Right now they are producing a show on "Extreme Parenting".

Breastfeeding after the age of 1 is EXTREME in this company's eyes!
They will be including this in their show.

Can you imagine this production company making Breastfeeding normal and helping to normalize Breastfeeding after infancy in the United States? Absolutely not.

They will degrade nursing mothers in some way, shape or form.
Nursing a child is not a show for the public to tune in on!

People should find breastfeeding a child at any age as something mundane and boring. People should not find a way to condemn breastfeeding mothers.

This show will set back everything us breastfeeding mothers have worked hard for! Don't let them do that.

      Breastfeeding a child of ANY age is NOT extreme. Stop making something beautiful and not ANYONE'S business but the parent/child another reason to gossip at the water cooler.

      I don't consider myself a lactivist. I believe that whether to nurse your kid or use formula is a decision that's up to the parents, and regardless of anyone's personal feelings, it's a private issue that ought to be respected as such.

      It would absolutely astound me if they could make a show about breastfeeding that wouldn't be ludicrous and end up sanctimoniously shaming both nursing mothers and those who choose not to. It's that controversy that's fueling this show, and if not, then it will be just about as interesting as a show about bowel movements or washing ones hair; mere bodily function that anyone over the age of eight is over the novelty of.

      We also have the future of the children involved to consider. While it's not shameful, breastfeeding is usually a private issue, as most things pertaining to our body are. If some people want to force their children to live in glass houses with them, that's shameful.

      The natural weaning age of a child is between 2.5 and 7 years of age, with the average being between 3 and 4. There is nothing abnormal, sensational or "extreme" about nursing to this age, save for the fact that this country is ridiculously ignorant about natural parenting, the sociology of breastfeeding, and the biology of breastfeeding.

      I breastfeed my baby and feel strongly that a trashy reality show about breastfeeding will make it more difficult to simply feed my child. Breastfeeding is already cast into the shadows and this type of show would make it worse. It makes no sense!

      I was unable to breast feed my son and still I understand the simple fact that breast feeding shouldnt be any more entertaining than watching a child eat carrots.
