    No It hasnt. As I have shown both through my scientific articles and websites other people (I believe Piper?) showed. Passive immunity ends at 72 hours for the most part, and 2-3 months total. You work ina hospital right? Go ask a doctor when 'passive transfer of maternal immunoglobulins into fetal circulation' ends. And make sure to ask a doctor, as they are the ones that have been trained in physiology, histology and biochemistry.

    But honestly, if others wanna believe this . I dont really care. I will continue to, not believe, since that gives an idea that there may be other possibilities out there, but to know things that have been proven over and over and over again though, and have tons of research to back it up.

    And with that, I am out. Class and then actually to a doctors appointment today.

    I was referring to the decrease in prevalence of allergies, not the passive immunity.

    I nursed until 2. According to WHO (World Heath Organization) states: Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.

    WHO | Breastfeeding

    According to the Oxford Journal the fats, proteins, lactose, and Vit. A actually increased from year 1-2 of nursing as a supplement to solid foods. It also shows that it stays the same in the further years as the first years nursing.

    Composition of Breast Milk Beyond One Yeir

    The American Pediatrics recommend that women exclusively breast feed up to 6 months and added with food until at least a year and longer, if mom and baby want it.

    It "provides continuing protection against diarrhea and respiratory tract infection." It also states that : "Exclusive breastfeeding has been shown to provide improved protection against many diseases and to increase the likelihood of continued breastfeeding for at least the first year of life."

    Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk

    In the long run, it is what is best for mom and child. I'm happy if people try. If they can't, I'm just happy if the baby gets Feed. After 3, eh, not for me and I really don't want to see it.

    I think that the picture is disturbing in itself. However, I also think 3 years old is too old to still be breastfeeding from the boob itself. If it were me, I would at least pump it and put it in a cup if I was hell bent on still breast feeding my three year old.

    I do know someone who is breast feeding a three year old. I have never asked her why because that is her right as not only a mom but as a human being.

    But i personally think it's a bit awkward to be breastfeeding for that long imo.
    But at least she's taking care of the kid i guess?
    I can relate! I only breastfed Nikaia for a month and I dealt with a lot of mixed emotions about it.

    If it was a picture of her breastfeeding a baby, it would have not been disturbing. I see women breastfeed babies all the time and doesn't bother me. That boy was just to old to be breastfeeding.

    And the pose they had him in didn't help at all. It was creepy.

    I wonder how that boy is gonna feel years from now. Thanks mom for not giving me a choice about whether I'd like millions of people to see me doing breastfeeding at the age of 3. I look creepy in that picture, as do you and all everyone is making fun of me.

    one thing I have learned from you lovely ladies
    is that there is multiple ways to skin the cat, when It comes to parenting.


    The only real thing shocking about this, is the elitism and in your face attitude, like it is an alternitive method, thats what I find annoying
