    While I support (extended) breastfeeding & have no false ideals about the purity of government motives,’accusing the state of demonizing co-sleeping as part of a drive to increase materialism and consumption is going a bit far… likewise, breadtfeeding and Janet Jackson’s public nudity have nothing in common, certainly not a secret plan to make sure all citizens are sedentary and on government-regulated diets. Let’s not see demons under every. single. rock, please.
