Old Jada Pinkett Smith quote about extended nursing

It's 5 years old now, but...

Fit Pregnancy: Were you trying to get pregnant, or is this an "oops" baby?

Jada Pinkett Smith: An oops baby. I was starting to wean Jaden, and I'd only had one cycle, so I thought I had some time. Then I got my surprise.

FP: How long did you breastfeed Jaden?

JPS: A good 18 months. That baby never even saw a bottle. He went everywhere with me - premieres, award shows. I would just find a back room and hook him up.

Jada and Will Smith also left an awards show once when their sitter called because one of their kids was sick. Good people

I LOVE Will and Jada!!!
OH! Me too! Just had to hop on the Will and Jada band wagon. I've always really respected and admired the way they actually know whats important in the midst of all the hollywood crap.
That's cool. She BF her daughter for at least 18 months too. I remember a quote when she did Matrix, where she said she BF through 6 months of training, 6 months of filming, and then 6 months after
cool. You know, I no longer really consider 18 months "extended" breastfeeding. Anything past two years to me is extended (past minimum recommendations) but I'm still thrilled when a baby gets mommy milk past a year, or at all for that matter.
I really like the Smiths. They seem very nice, very level-headed, intelligent, caring people with great personalities. I've always liked Will, and I don't know much about Jada but she seems like a stand-up gal too.
