Stupid things in movies

Answered on January 13, 2015
Created February 01, 2013 at 5:01 AM

I was watching a movie the other day, I think it was "Grownups" and in it, one of the mothers was breastfeeding her son and he was 4 years old. They made it seem disgusting and sexualized it. Later in the movie, the kids were all at a waterpark and the kid wanted milk, another kid walked by with a milk carton and so the kid's father grabbed the milk carton from the kid walking by and gave it to his son saying something like "here drink normal milk." What is wrong with drinking breaskmilk instead of pasteurized/homogenized milk from a carton until he stopped on his own or the mother wanted to stop?

This is not the only movie I have seen this in, I have seen it in many other movies and in every one of them, they made the act of an older(2-4) child breastfeeding seem like a perverted sexual act. Also, what does "normal milk" mean? What goes through your mind when you see this in movies or hear people saying things in real life that support this idea?

You would think? How very informed. If you want to make an assertion like "attachment issues," provide a citation of someone who is not you, someone who is qualified to make such an assessment.

Or someone could just be jealous and want some of that nice titty milk as well.

Only pedophiles-in-denial have issues with breastfeeding.

Breast feeding in my family until around the age of four is NORMAL. Has been for generations. Watch different movies.

Seriously?  Not to be critical / judgemental but I have never heard of this in any culture.  Care to share some details?

A good example of the growing disconnect between humans and their food. There are likely more than quite a few new mothers (and fathers) who are largely ignorant that breasts make milk. Baby food comes in cans and jars, right?

I have heard mothers say things like that in order to keep children breastfeeding past a couple years, that they give them a little less liquids or food than they should so that they want to keep breastfeeding. In my opinion this is taking it too far. I think that it is fine to offer toddlers as much of both options as they want and let them decide when they want to stop breastfeeding.

Friends of mine have twins and they are I think 4, and as far as I know are still breast fed.  I have to admit it is a little bizarre to watch, and a little creepy/uncomfortable.  The kids are walking, talking, potty trained, and will walk up to mommy and ask for some boob.

I am not well versed in the physiology or psychology but my opinion is that this isn't healthy.  The kid is long past the age where they need the nutrition, antibodies, or intimacy of breast feeding, and I think this is likely to stunt their development and introduce psychological issues for the mom and/or kids.

The husband is a good friend of mine and he has confided that his wife suffers depression and has a very, very, very strong attachment to the kids, as babies.  Basically she doesn't want them to grow up or leave her in any way shape or form.  I think this breast feeding is a result of this fear of hers and I don't think it's healthy.

It's not perverted but breast-feeding a four year old is depraved.

Not all movies demonize breast-feeding. I particularly like how the issue was tackled by Jim Carrey in the movie Me, Myself & Irene:

Mmmmm

i would think kids who breastfeed that late develop attachment issues. if you're going to feed your kids breastmilk, just put it in a cup
