Breast feeding should stop once the child has teeth. I do agree on the niceness of her breasts though.

Uh no. Most doctors agree it should stop at about age 1. I personally did it as long as I could, but my milk did not last that long.

I didn't breast feed, yes, I am a horrible mother, but I figured my kids would starve if I tried. But I remember when my kids got their front teeth and the damage they did to the nipples on their bottles, I don't remember what age that was since it's been 17 +/- years, that was enough to make me glad I was such a horrible mother.

But if x=0, that means the denominator would equal 0.
Anything divided by 0 is undefined.

noooooooooooo this is calculus. all sorts of magic can happen in calculus.

and d/dx is not division. it's a derivative.

10. ## Re: The Default Thread

I thought is was "a."
I haven't taken calculus in over 10 years.
Fuck that shit.

11. ## Re: The Default Thread

It's a (lower case) delta, which is used in partial derivatives (as opposed to a plain old d/dx used in calculus 101 derivatives).

d/dx sin (ax+b) = a cos (ax+b) [I had to look that up, I didn't remember it and didn't feel like trying to derive it]

at x=0, this become a cos b.

cos (-pi/2) is zero.

so the whole thing is zero.

TomAZ has just given me nightmares for many nights to come. Thank you, Tom.

13. ## Re: The Default Thread

All that calculus went straight over my head.
I guess I didn't retain anything.

doctors. always right.

16. ## Re: The Default Thread

There's not much nutritional value after that time.

17. ## Re: The Default Thread

Izzy only breastfed for 3 months. I really did not enjoy it at all. It made me feel trapped and extremely anxious.

18. ## Re: The Default Thread

i wanna breast feed...pregnant women turn me on.

19. ## Re: The Default Thread

That's too bad, gunz. I found it to be an extremely rewarding and bonding experience.

20. ## Re: The Default Thread

Most women do. I, on the other hand, did not.

It took me a while to get to that point, and of course there were many downsides, so I can understand not liking it. Painful hard as rock boobs and milk leakage were among those downsides.

23. ## Re: The Default Thread

I didn't like being confined. I would get so anxious and for absolutely no reason would get these overwhelming urges to just stand up and leave.

I also had a hard time with the seeming desexualizing of my breasts and of me. I did enjoy that when my boobs would get filled up they looked soooooo huge, but my husband and I couldn't enjoy them because they would fucking hurt soooooo bad. And that pump . . . OMG, pumping just totally sucked.

24. ## Re: The Default Thread

I breastfed the twins until they were 16 mos, and my youngest until she was 14 mos. Yeah, at that point it is just a comfort thing to get them to go to sleep at night, and the decision to stop is fairly easy, especially if you want your old body back. I enjoyed breastfeeding. The idea of the extra work involved in bottle feeding (making formula, sterilizing bottles, etc.) was a no-go for me; I had enough work to do already.

Breastfeeding until the kid is a toddler or beyond(!) is mighty strange and uncomfortable to me, but I've known a few who've done it. *shrugs*

25. ## Re: The Default Thread

algunz, the feeling of being trapped or confined when you have a newborn/young infant is normal, whether you breastfeed or not. In the beginnning, breastfeeding the twins, I didn't even feel human at times, more like a perpetual milk machine. It can be very disheartening. It takes a lot of perseverance to get through that. And you know, things get better, smoother, easier, as they get older and fall into a routine. Those early days are always the roughest. I think it helps to have someone in your life who can offer pointers, too. My mom was a huge help.

26. ## Re: The Default Thread

I remember that at least 6 months after I stopped breastfeeding, my friend had a baby and when she would breastfeed in front of me I would start lactating again. It happened several times and was quite amusing.

27. ## Re: The Default Thread

Doesn't seem to affect his kid

28. ## Re: The Default Thread

I totally understand HtD, but it was just not my gig.

I didn't enjoy being pregnant nor giving birth either. I love being a mother, but it would take a huge oversight on my part to consider being pregnant again.

29. ## Re: The Default Thread

Who enjoys giving birth?

No one.
