Mayim Bialik recently defended breastfeeding her son Fred until he was four.
The author of Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way – told In Touch Weekly, “People laughed and sneered but it wasn’t wrong. Just because you do something your way doesn’t mean you can judge people who don’t. If I breast-feed and you don’t, it’s OK. I don’t think I’m a better mom and my kids aren’t necessarily better off than yours.”
The single mom to Miles, 8, and Fred, now 5, says the response she’s received online and via social media made her cry.
“The way that I parent is the way thousands of women parent all over the world, but I get flak for it. People say really mean things!”
In her personal blog, the actress shared what she plans for her kids before The Big Bang Theory starts up again.
She wrote: “Now that I am on hiatus, I do some publicity stuff. I do some traveling for work and some speaking engagements, and some for fun. I see my sons more and do normal mom things. And as soon as their classes end (yes, even homeschool kids have a summer break!), I hope to do beach things with them and just have some down time before we start Season 8 in August. And I have a ton of not very exciting, but necessary construction that I have to do on my house. That’s the summer plan.”
