          Man Claims Girlfriend Continues To Breastfeed Their 7-Month-Old For Attention


          March 23, 2016

          Cory, 37, admits he has a strict set of rules for his household and his 25-year-old girlfriend, Elizabeth. And when it comes to their infant son, Cory has said he wants Elizabeth to stop breastfeeding the child when he turns 8 months old.

          “Elizabeth is very needy. She uses her breastfeeding as a way of [getting] attention,” Cory claims, adding that he thinks it’s “pretty selfish” that Elizabeth often takes the child into the bedroom to nurse. He also explains that he believes that if Elizabeth were to stop breast feeding, some difficulties between them that he claims are hormonally related may resolve.

          In the video above, Elizabeth responds to Cory’s statements.
