Writing for the New York Times parenting blog Motherlode, James Braly ’86 discusses the impact of extended breast feeding on fathers in his article "Breastfeeding and Sex". He draws from his personal experience of watching his wife breastfeed their seemingly grown-up toddler. Braly argues that fathers' opinions on the matter must be taken into account, lest their feelings towards their family be adversely affected. Do extended breastfeeding's health benefits for children outweigh the potential destruction of a marriage?
Braly is an author and performer with a new book out called Life in a Marital Institution, based on his one-man show of the same name. For more information, read his General View feature.
