Is Mayim Bialik ready to start weaning Fred?
The Big Bang Theory actress, who also holds a PhD in neuroscience, is pictured above breastfeeding her 3-year-old son on a New York City subway. The mom-of-two wrote a thoughtful blog for kveller, asking herself if now is the time.
I have written about my now 3-year-old son Fred, and his nursing rhythms before,” Mayim wrote. “To recap: Fred nursed for a solid 12 months with no supplements, no solid foods, and not even a sip of water. He got the hang of eating solids around 18 months, but continued to nurse all day (with bottles of pumped breastmilk when I was at work), and on demand all night. A typical night involved no less than four wake-ups and sometimes six (every 2 hours on the clock for 12 hours of bed time was not unusual). This went on for almost 3 years.”
