101. Making your boobs scary, that's real sane!!!
I am 48 years old, 3 kids, nieces and nephews, grandchild, worked in head start and a day care center; never ever ever have I heard of something so completly crazy as a woman scaring her kid away from her boobs. Like that isn't going to psychologically damage a kid as much as nursing too long would, not that that's a real concern anyway. A lot of kids who nurse past a year old are going to want to nurse for comfort for a long time afterwards. It's up to each parent to decide how long it's comfortable for them.

I swear, some people. Maybe your wife should paint her breasts with flowers and birdies and go back to the doctor and tell him boobs are good, really they are. Embrace the power of the boob!!
