Hi ladies. I wanted to post what I just found coming up on Oprah! You can write in if you want to be on the show. Just go to Oprah.com and find the link about being on the show... here are details of the topic:

Are You Too Old to Breast-feed?
Are you currently breast-feeding your son or daughter? How old is he or she? Do you wonder what age is appropriate to wean your child? Do you think your family and/or friends feel uncomfortable around you or discussing the topic of breast-feeding?

What is your position on when to wean your child? We want to hear your thoughts.

Please only write-in if you are willing to appear on television.

I wonder what Oprah's take on this is? If she's going to be embarassing some poor moms on TV?

I was wondering too. I'd like to think she's going to be promoting it, but the last thing I heard about bfdg on a talk show was about how Tyra had a woman on who was still bfdg an 8 yr old. I personally didn't see the show, but it sounded like it was more about the sensationalism than a true look at the subject.
