She's putting the big girls to work!

Salma Hayek reveals in a new interview that she is addicted to breastfeeding!

Says Salami, "I'm like an alcoholic. It is like, I don't care if I cry, I don't care if I am fat, I am just going to do it for one more week, one more month, and then when I see how much good it is doing her (precious little Valentina) and I can't stop."

Maybe she'll stop when more of baby V's teeth come in?

Hey, moms out there, when did U stop whipping out the boob and why?

Is Salami's addiction a normal thing?

Enlighten us!

    Its healthiest for the little ones to breastfeed for a year. Yes teeth hurt but the baby learns… "if i bite I don't eat".

    Anything longer than a year just seems wrong.



  2. 202

    Totally normal!
    Hey Perez, YOU SURE LOVE THE BOOBIES!



  3. 203

    I breastfed my first child until he was 15 months old, and I breastfed my daughter until she was 18 months old. It's the BEST thing that you can do for them, and it's so natural. I never had a problem with biting as they got older- I just told them "No!" and they never did it again. I'm now expecting my third baby, and I will nurse this one, too. The bond between mother and baby during breastfeeding is amazing, plus it made me feel great to be able to provide sustenance for my child.



  4. 204

    Breast feeding produces endorphines, which are the chemicals that make you feel high. When I breast fed, I loved it too. It was like smoking weed; high, happy, munchies.



  5. 205

    I breastfed my son and it was a wonderful experience. I don't know about addicting, but once I stopped it was extremely hard on me. I felt sad, which actually I think started my post par tum depression. I breast fed him until he was 8 months only because he had both sets of front chompers and would chomp very hard! I really wish I could have done longer….next time. :)
    Experts say that breastfeeding actually helps reduce post par tum because of the body to body bond. Since the baby is inside you for so long your body becomes so used to it that when your baby is born, your body has a hard time adjusting. So, breastfeeding is a helpful way to curb the baby blues. I love breastfeeding and knowing with every feeding I was giving my baby the best of the best! That is a feeling I will never forget. I do miss it!

    Good grief, of course breastfeeding is normal. How ridiculously stupid can you be to think your breasts are for your "man" instead? It is a proven fact that kids who are breastfed are MUCH healthier and MUCH smarter than kids who aren't. Of course, this could also be due to the fact that it isn't very smart to let your kids grow up on fast food, artificial colors and flavors, and all that processed crap with the pretty pictures on it. I sympathize with mothers who have to refrain from breastfeeding for health or allergy reasons, though. Like most people, I get a little skeeved when I see kids over the age of 2 still being breastfed. There is a limit. For all you formula-only supporters out there (by choice), next time you're in the kitchen mixing up a bottle of formula, check out the ingredients on the label. Processed, refined sugar and other crap is not healthy for your kid. Ingredients that contain processed free glutamic acid (MSG) and free aspartic acid- known neurotoxins- are used in baby formula. Look it up. The fact that neurotoxins are present in baby formula is of particular concern because the blood brain barrier is never fully developed in infants, allowing neurotoxins more accessibility to the brain then would be the case in healthy adults. So read the label and if you have to feed formula, go for the good stuff. And it's true, we ARE the only species who drink the milk of other species. Unless you are a baby cow, you don't need cow's milk, DUH!



  7. 207

    I boobyfed until my kid was over TWO!!

    POWERMOMMA!!!

    I got great jugs from it.



  8. 208

    I would say it can definitely be addicting and hard to give up. I breastfed for 7-1/2 mos. and I'm not sure whether my daughter cared or not about stopping. She was a busy bee, never biting. In the end it was really about weaning MYSELF … I knew I was doing something good for her and it was our cuddle time. :o )



  9. 209

    Re: mamacita402

    You're an idiot.



  10. 210

    I b/f my last baby to 16 months - she decided herself to stop, and that was fine - but it was great whilst it lasted. Her older brother decided to start biting at 11 months and refused to stop..so that was the end of b/f for him!!



  11. 211

    Thanks to all the moms out there giving breastfeeding tips…I can't wait to be a mom someday and hearing these comments are awesome!!! Quick question….after breasfeeding your children, did your boobies go back to your regular cup or did it shrink/get bigger????



  12. 212

    Gettin' off from breastfeeding? Not cool people!



  13. 213

    Re: Mal198407
    hey me too! My boys are 16 months and I've no intention of stopping anytime soon - for all of the great health and bonding reasons everyone is listing here.
    I'm with Salma - best addiction ever.



  14. 214

    Breastfeeding does release substances that are similar to opiates, they are called 'endogenous opioids', endogenous because they come from within the body. That might explain the addictive properties of breastfeeding! Apparently breastfeeding is also a good time to quit smoking (although you'd hope that by the time a woman gave birth she would have given up!) as the endogenous opioids help reduce nicotine withdrawals.



  15. 215

    well i was never breastfed and when i was 15 i got cancer.
    my brother was breastfed and is fine, and so far i am the first one in my family to not have been breastfed, and the only one to ever have gotten cancer.



  16. 216

    Re: MsDoloD81
    Usually they go back to how they were pre pregnancy, but some women end up having larger breasts after breastfeeding.



  17. 217

    She's totally normal. I nursed my daughter until she was 23 months. I think it's something that men could never relate to, but it's a really powerful experience that bonds a mother and her child.



  18. 218

    gosh she is gorgeous.

    and breastfeeding holds such a connection (physical AND emotional) to your child.. plus all the benefits of it given to the child, i can understand the addiction.



  19. 219

    I don't have children yet, but if that's what breast feeding does to your chi chi's. I'm getting started a.s.a.p.!



  20. 220

    I stopped breastfeeding my kids around 1 years old. That was what the American Academy of Pediatrics recomended. I let them wean themselves though.



  21. 221

    ive never had a kid. but i say 6 months to a year is fine.
    :P



  22. 222

    There is such a sense of pride that goes with Breast feeding your children. KNowing that you are fully responsible for the continued growth after birth. NOt to mention the bond you have with the child.
    Hopefully the kid is not a biter. Ill stop when my daughter bites me.
    There are some freaks that take it too far. Nursing a child over the age of 2 Is so FUkced up.



  23. 223

    I CHOSE not to breastfeed…..children prove to do just as well on formula as breastmilk….Ugly ass hairy Selma as well as all you breastfeeding nazi need to get off your high horses. Just because you're shoving your tit in your kids mouth doesn't mean crap!



  24. 224

    Re: MissDoodahDay – ummmm, not everyone CAN breastfeed! I have a condition that won't allow me to produce enough calcium, and have been told that I physically CANNOT breastfeed. Besides it's really someone's choice as to whether or not they want to. You shouldn't go around calling people idiots just because they don't make the same decision as you. That makes YOU look like the idiot and EXTREMELY narrow minded & judgemental.



  25. 225

    I have two kids (and am pregnant with #3)..I'm still breastfeeding both of them..My eldest is 3 1/2, my youngest is 19 months… Guess I'm all about tandem nursing :P

    And kids with teeth don't hurt unless they bite you, duh! If they are just nursing, it doesn't hurt unless they are biting down or have a bad latch.

    And for those who think you can't breastfeed because you have a job…I'm a full time college student and I work, and I breastfeed on my breaks…Not hard :)



  26. 226

    nursing her baby is still considered "normal". valentina is only 14 months old. the normal range would go up to 24 mos according to the la leche league. the trend in the u.s. used to be to wean around 12 mos of age. but now it's getting increasingly longer.

    hey! if she has the time and the milk, she should go for it. valentina is still a baby after all.

    p.s. the teeth aren't such a big deal.



  27. 227

    The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for a MINIMUM of two years. Here in Canada most women breastfeed for a minimum of one year. I nursed my first child for 18 months and my second for 15 months. My younger one has never had an ear infection and both of them have very strong immune systems and rarely get sick - all thanks to that liquid gold!



  28. 228

    Oh yes, and by the way, the WHO (World Health Organization) promotes breastfeeding for 2 years only due to the amount of baby deaths in third world countries due to being improperly bottle fed.

    Man mothers sicken me….so close minded. Statistically, bottlefeeders STILL outweigh breastfeeders and always has. WONDER WHY!



  29. 229

    Im sorry but I personally thinks breastfeeding is gross!



  30. 230

    Re: zen mama

    You can't say stupid sh*t like that. There are formula fed children/adults who are healthy as horses and breastfed children/adults who are sick all the time.

    Soooooo close minded.



  31. 231

    "People who don't breastfeed are idiots" - to the idiot who wrote this at the start of all the comments…did it ever occur to you that some people just CAN'T breastfeed? I so so badly wanted to, in fact I was 100% against the bottle. But when you're son is hungry and your boobs are bleeding and you have no milk then what else can you do.

    Yes breastfeeding is best for the baby but don't shut down people who have to go for the other alternative.



  32. 232

    I ALWAYS HAVE BREAST MILK AT THE READY
    AND WHEN I DONT HAVE KIDS TO GIVE IT TO I JUST BREAST FEED MYSELF



  33. 233

    Breast is BEST, there is NO substitue! There is nothing more natural and there is nothing "gross" about it. People who say crap like that are ignorant fools. The Amercan Academy of Pediatrics suggests at least a year, but the World Health Organization suggests at least 2 years. I breastfed each for about 18-20 months. Teeth were never an issue, m plus my weight came off 4X faster than all my non-BF friends.



  34. 234

    I breastfed my daughter until she was 11 months old and only stopped because I was already 4 months pregnant with my son. My son is still being breastfed and he's almost 14 months old now. I'm hoping to stop soon but as long as he wants it even though he's already on the bottle with whole milk, and he still wants to have that connection with me then there's nothing I can do about it. Plus, I'm pretty sure, I'll miss that connection with him once it's over. It's also kept him really healthy and his immune system strong. Plus what a money saver on formula too.

  36. 236

    After 5 weeks I couldn't take it anymore!!! I praise her and all who do it for so long, but you crazies who are breastfeeding your kid til they are two are doing them no favors!



  37. 237

    I breastfed all 3 of my children. I breastfed my son until he was 20 months old! I know, I know. He didn't want to stop. I had many failed attempts–but, finally I had to quit cold turkey. It was easy to keep putting it off because it is like taking amy winehouse off the pipe! Everyone thinks that breastfeeding is sick and twisted–but, it is natural and a wonderful bonding experience. Until you have tried it–there is no way to explain the feeling between mother and child while breastfeeding. I don't understand why people think it is gross. It is NOT sexual. It doesn't feel sexual. It is a feeling of total warmth and unconditional love. I had a wonderful time breastfeeding! I was sad when I had to stop!



  38. 238

    AND i never had any bad experiences with biting.



  39. 239

    omfg i want to live inbetween her tits



  40. 240

    Re: HarperDee

    Excuse me? You have no idea what you are talking about..I've wanted to stop breastfeeding for a while. I believe in self-weaning..And yes, I am doing my kids a favor — I am giving them nutrients. How much processed crap is there on the shelves at the store? My neice was formula fed, had ear infections every year and was always sick..My kids have rarely been sick and never had ear infections, period..So I DO feel like I'm doing them a favor.



  41. 241

    I did for 12 months. Thats totally normal Perez. Usually babies slowly quit as they start to eat more solid foods and start to drink from a cup. It's only our culture that thinks it's weird. Now, 4 years old is a bit strange.



  42. 242

    age four!



  43. 243

    Breastmilk is fantastic stuff for infants and a great bonding experience. It just isn't necessary after that. I think anyone doing it much after one year needs to cut the cord. It's for the baby, not you, and the baby needs to gain a little more independence at that point. Plus, who wants to wear those fugly nursing bras longer than that?



  44. 244

    all i got to say is look at dem titties



  45. 245

    When the kid can start asking for it, it's time to quit…..I only lasted 3 months, it hurts like a bitch! How old is the kid?? Most women stop at 10 months - a year.



  46. 246

    I breastfed my twins until they were 2 1/2. They are SO healthy today!!!



  47. 247

    I breastfed my son til he was 3. its a wonderful thing to know you are doing wonders for your child. and it helps prevent ppd for some. and like one person said cancer. overseas it lasts for up to 4 years roughly. thats not the only thing the child is getting. they still get solid foods but they get breast milk too. it is hard to wean your child. Go SELMA!!!



  48. 248

    still breast feeding my son at 18 mos….it's not common here in the US, but in many other places, mothers nurse until 2 or even 3.



  49. 249

    Re: Parramore – I so agree. SICK!



  50. 250

    how about my sister in law still breast feeds her almost 5 year old and her 1 year old.
    ew.



  51. 251

    I stopped feeding my son at 2 years. Breastfeeding is a great thing, its just after 2 they start talking and it just gets weird.



  52. 252

    Re: blankita – Sorry but it is the way that I feel. I was eating lunch and I glance over and a womans nipple with milk coming out of it was exposed. Sorry, but its not something I want to see. It makes me feel uncomfortable. I am just asking for a blanket. When I was doing it I went to my car, home, room, or pumped when in public. My comment was not offensive. Its my opinion.



  53. 253

    My other post didn't show up..

    I don't see anything wrong with breastfeeding at 14 months or up to 2 years.. I do however have a problem with that woman from the UK breastfeeding her 8 year old! Go to youtube and type in: breastfeed eight, in the search area. That just seems so wrong to me.



  54. 254

    breastfeeding burns 600-900 calories a day plus its great for you baby! good for her



  55. 255

    go to you tube and type in extraordinary brestfreeding. there is a woman who is still brestfeeding her 8 yr old daughter.



  56. 256

    Re: I Love Lamp – I saw that and about DIED! not ok.



  57. 257

    Breastfeeding is a special bond that you have with your baby that no one else has, and once you stop you will never have that special time with your baby again. I breastfed for a year so i know exactly how she feels. It's also nice being able to make your boobs huge whenever you want just by drinking lots of water. HOWEVER, when she stops breastfeeding, when her breasts shrink up and her skin is stretched out, leaving you looking like you have deflated balloons on your chest, she will most likely (as i did) regret breastfeeding for so long. But i guess she has money to get that fixed.

    i commend the young mothers of hollywood finally bringing back a trend that does wonderful things for the future generations. breast feeding is not only physically healthy for babies it also has emotional benefits. i breastfed my 2 year old for 18 months and it was one of the best decisions i ever made. it hurt like hell for the first weeks, but its absolutely not unbearable. you can also train your children not to bite. bottom line………….. BREASTFEEDING ROCKS!!!



  59. 259

    I breastfed my daughter until she was 18 months old. The World Health Organization actually reccomends breastfeeding "To two years and beyond."
    It's a good thing!



  60. 260

    I breastfed my son for 2 1/2 years. He has yet to be sick! The best part about it is you burn calories by just sitting there. I've never been so thin!



  61. 261

    I breast fed both my kids for about a year, it is a very bonding experience, but I also wanted to be able to get my drink on!



  62. 262

    breastfeeding releases a chemical called Oxytocin in the momma & baby's brains…. that's actually what makes them feel "addicted"



  63. 263

    Re: mamacita402 – what an idiot my boobs are reserved for my man what an effinn tool you are



  64. 264

    I don't get all these mothers who criticize mothers who don't bf. My mother had her first kid in '69 when smoking was more popular, and her doctor told her if she was going to smoke don't bf. She also had to go back to work and I don't know if pumps were around back then. I was born in 80 and other brother in 87 she still smoked so she didn't bf us either. Her only regret is that she got breat cancer DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In Situ) twice and she wonders if she bf if she would have gotten the cancer. The doctor told her it didn't make much of a difference something like 2-5%.

    To those who say their baby was never sick or is smarter because of bf…If you didn't formula feed how do you know you would/wouldn't have had the same outcome with formula. You'll never know so you cant scientifically say one is better than the other.

    My Mama Gave us the chi chi till we were 2 and we (my brother sister and I) all have awesome teeth strong bones and are over all pretty damn healthy people. Im gonna try to aim for 2 years too. :-) After All Thats what those BIG TETAS ARE MEANT FOR! not for men like many bimbos seem to think



  67. 267

    I nursed my son until he was 3 1/2 yrs old. It's called self-weaning… there are tons of facts that I could quote… but i'll save my fingers the typing and just let you research it yourself. one place to start would be dr. sears… a pediatrician in california



  68. 268

    oh and when i have another child i will do the exact same thing…. i don't care who knows that i nursed my son for that long. it was a great bonding experience and a great way to comfort him in stressful situations. people can think it's gross all they want… personally, i could give a damn. my son is now 5 and he and i still talk about when he would have his "mum-mums" and we laugh about it. hell, they were his first toys… when he goes to hooters to eat with my husband… he's more interested in the butts than the boobs… he's a butt man; not a boob man.

    Yoshi Chow says:
    Breastfeeding is great but to those mothers who think that we want to see your boobs, please cover up in public. Throw a blanket over you and the baby and your breast. As a woman I don't see anything wrong with it but not all people think alike. I've breastfed all 4 of my kids and they are smart, healthy kids!! But if I went out I always had a blanket to cover up so I wouldn't get those werid or dirty looks
    —————————————————————-

    If you don’t want to see a mother breastfeeding then put a blanket over your own head or don’t look idiot!

    When those little baby teeth come in & they start to bite the nipple…forget about it…that was all it took at 9 mos old for me to stop!

  74. 274

    I breastfed for six months, but I have no milk towards the end. I think breastfeeding until 12 months is ideal, but world organizations recommend bresastfeeding for two years.

    I personally wouldn't do it past 12 months, but what other people do it is none of my business. If it makes them happy and their child healthy, I'm all for it!



  75. 275

    My son is still nursing at 13 months. No plan on stopping soon. When he's ready, he'll wean.



  76. 276

    Re: Texas Mom – I breast feed my son for 10 months and my daughter for 8 months, my son still had MAJOR ear infections and had surgery twice on his ears…it's not 100% true that breastfeeding prevents ear infections….



  77. 277

    i breast fed my son until he stopped at age three. he never bit. we were in europe, and it was just a normal thing you did discreetly. obviously it tapers off drastically the older they get. it's very relaxing and not a big deal. maybe if you're a stressed out person and you're forcing it on your little monster then it might be painful & unnecessary. i can't imagine anyone with implants would find it appealing.



  78. 278

    Re: blankita – You go girl!



  79. 279

    thats fucking creepy!



  80. 280

    I nursed both my boys until they were around 15 months old. They both self-weaned. I don't think it's right to judge either way on how a mother chooses to feed her baby, as long as she takes good care of the child. There's nothing wrong with formula…I just chose BF-ing for my kids. I also never set a planned time to quit. I just let it happen.

    My boobs shrank a lot after I was done nursing. I am slightly smaller now than before my first baby. My kids are healthy, although my older son does have major allergies and asthma despite the extended nursing.

    I don't understand why people are so grossed out by the sight of a woman discreetly nursing her baby in public. No one twists your arm to look. I don't watch you as you eat, so why do you feel the need to watch a baby have the most natural form of food? I don't think a woman should walk around topless, but I have yet to see someone nurse in an inappropriate way. No one expects you to throw a towel over your head while you eat so they don't have to look at you chew, so why would you expect a nursing baby to have to feed with one over their head? And please don't ever ask a nursing mother to feed her baby in the bathroom. Would you ever eat your sandwich in a public bathroom?? I think not.



  81. 281

    Re: hottiewithabody – Awww baby…I am SO sorry! There is no way to prove it is "because" you weren't breastfed…I hope you are doing ok!!



  82. 282

    Breastfeeding is great for your baby and mom too! My daughter and I did it until she was 24 months. It was a natural progression to stop. By that time she was eating regular foods, and she was only doing 1 feeding per day. Hooray for all the milk factory mama's out there!



  83. 283

    2+, BITCHES! And Im the least hip out there…

    Re: whoelsebutme – wow…u got issues girlfriend



  85. 285

    I stopped breasfeeding at around 6 months. But I think what she is saying is its hard to stop when they get bigger because you know how good it is for them and its so hard to see them getting bigger! What she said is perfectly normal.

    286

    I HATED breastfeeding. It was the worst. I never felt relaxed and I never felt that bond. I did it for the recommended time (1 year) and then stopped. Anytime I hear someone does it for more than a year it gives me the eeebies. At that point, it's more for the Mom than the kid.



  87. 287

    They hurt like hell the first time! Then you get used to it. Best of all you don't have to get out of bed to warm a bottle. Hope that enlightens you! And, its
    good for the baby!



  88. 288

    I stopped when I got tired of leaking everywhere! (at about 4 months!)



  89. 289

    sounds so sick for breast feeding to go into the childs young years..someone on here posted up to 4 years old!!!!!!!!! GROSSSSSSS…



  90. 290

    My kids nursed until they were 3 & 4 years old.



  91. 291

    I'm still breastfeeding and my son is 20 months old. Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your baby. And teeth don't hurt, they aren't chewing!



  92. 292

    Seriously, all of you uneducated on the topic should SHUT IT! I breasfed my first for 14mos, my second for 15 mos and my third for 2 years. It is THE BEST THING you can do for your baby. Go Salma!!!! There is nothing like it, and I said "YOU GO GIRL"!!!!

    13 months and still going strong!



  95. 295

    I'm rockin' 18 months now with my daughter. It was 13 with my son. 2 years is recommended by pediatricians.



  96. 296

    wow!!!! heyy aatleast her boobs still lok nice….



  97. 297

    Salma Hayek has been breastfeeding me in my imagination for years now. (I'm pretty sure that's going to go on forever.)



  98. 298

    I quit nursing my son when he was two-and-a-half years old. when it's time, it's time and it should always be up to the child.

  99. Amy82 says – reply to this


    299

    I breastfed both of my kids. The only good feeling it provided was that I knew I was doing the best for my kids by nursing them. If a woman is doing it for the way it makes HER feel, maybe she needs to reconsider.



  100. 300

    Kid #1 6 months because I had to go back to work.
    Kid #2 12 months because I stayed home but the teeth HURT!
