I’m of the train of thought, that if you can ask for the boob, than you’re too old to be getting it.
In regards to breastfeeding.
This is a debate that remains heated. I’m not a mom, and I wasn’t breastfeed either, so I can’t really weigh in. But I can suggest that you do if you are a parent, or have plans to maybe be one, one day.

“Time magazine’s breastfeeding cover star, Jamie Lynne Grumet, a 26-year-old mother from Los Angeles, has said she will not stop breastfeeding her almost-four-year-old until he turns five.”
During an appearance on the n The Today Show she said, ‘I’m hoping our fourth year is probably going to be our final.’
The topic of extended breastfeeding has presented itself as continuously controversial with vocal naysayers and advocators.
The mother of two, also breastfeeds her Ethiopian adopted five-year-old son Samuel. She herself was breastfed by her own mother until age 6, and accredits her inner confidence at such a young age to the bond created from her mother from breastfeeding.
Grumet pointed out that many are probably outraged by the imagery of the cover photo, and explained that in real life, that’s not how she feeds her children. (They don’t pull up a chair…)
‘It’s more of a cradling, nurturing situation [at home]. I understand what they’re [the advocates] saying. Aram is in fact ‘self-weaning right now’,”
She explained, and admitted that
she ‘did understand’ that the cover shoot was intended to spark controversy
