Helena Bonham Carter Still Nursing Her 2 Year Old

"People say, `You're still breast-feeding, that's so generous.' Generous, no! It gives me boobs and it takes my thighs away! It's sort of like natural liposuction. I'd carry on breast-feeding for the rest of my life if I could." - Helena, on breastfeeding her children

I like her way of thinking.

Besides, the length of time for breastfeeding is and should be a decision made between mother and child.

She gets *that* comment when people hear she is still breastfeeding? Well it's certainly much better than the usual, which at best is "`You're still breast-feeding?!" (looking at you like you're absolutely mental), or the down right rude/ignorant - "`You're still breast-feeding, that's so weird!... Uh, I mean, EWW, Um, is't that just WRONG? Well I couldn't do that.... no, I'm stopping as soon as they get teeth." etc.

Anyway, good on her!
