Old-Fashioned Advice for Weaning a Baby
Also they weaned much long in the old days because it was the poor mother's only means of a kind of birth control. So sad we are headed back that way, robbing society of brilliant women who have made such strides in medicine, science, etc. Forcing them back into the horror and utter mind-numbing, barf-making boredom of motherhood.
I'm sorry to see that you feel this way about motherhood, especially with all our modern conveniences to make life easier that they did not have back in the day. Many women who are unsure about becoming a mother at first will tell you it's the best thing that ever happened to them. It's also sad that you feel being a mother and being a "brilliant" woman who contributes to her field are mutually exclusive. I'd like to reassure you they are not, and many women enjoy both being a mother and having a career today.
We are surely not headed back to the days before birth control. There are a plethora of birth control options available today, more than in any other age of the world, even if you exclude the possibility of abortion, which I suspect is what you're referring to. I'd also like to briefly bring up the millions of "brilliant women" who have been lost to abortion (at a higher rate than male children are, by the way). I wonder what the world could look like today if not robbed of their contributions and voices as well. You see, part of equal rights for women means not pre-determining which voices are important and which are expendable.
