I'm the woman on the documentary who allowed her children to self wean. You might be interested to know that I'll be on Good Morning America (ABC news) this tuesday. It will be highly likely that the documentary will air in the US as a result.
I've been slightly amused, if not confused, by how many people assume that my husband breastfed all the time. It was very clear that our comments were referring to him helping me from time to time when I needed to express because my breasts were overflowing from tandem nursing two children.
My comments that this is 'common in breastfeeding families'...well, our experience, personally and professionally (I edit The Mother magazine), is that this is the rule rather than the exception. I'm genuinely sorry if this makes some mums and dads squirmish...
I'd be grateful if you could post these comments to the group so the topic can be cleared a little. It is worth people remembering too that when making a documentary there is so much footage involved..in this case, weeks and weeks...what the viewer sees is a distillation of many things.
Yes my kids draw breasts but I can assure people it isn't their favourite past time. Despite appearances, they're actually normal kids!
