The mom-of-two shared a picture of herself breastfeeding three-year-old Fred on the NYC subway — is this weird or what?!

In a new blog post for kveller.com, Mayim Bialik, 35, who best known for starring in Blossom and The Big Bang Theory, admits it may finally be time to start weaning her three-year-old son Fred. Yeah, we’d say so!

Mayim, who also has a six-year-old son Miles, believes in child-led weaning and although she never thought she would be breastfeeding a three-year-old, she doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with it — actually she enjoys it!

“I have written about my now 3-year-old son Fred, and his nursing rhythms before,” Mayim wrote on kveller.com. “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.”

So, what’s next for Mayim and Fred? Read more on kveller.com!
