Kelly Rutherford is a freak. She's pregnant, still breastfeeding, and likes having her kid in diapers. I'm willing to bet it's "old mommy syndrome". She waited too long to have kids and now just can't get enough of the baby stages. I don't understand why she'd have a problem with her ex potty training. If it works, she should thank him! Is it any wonder the guy took ogff on her? She preferred having her kid stimulate her nipples and she'll just be in seventh heaven when she has one child on each breast simultaneously. She should have those kids taken away. I've had kids and while mine were at least 2 1/2 by the time they were completely potty trained, I wouldn't have had a problem with it being done earlier. And there is no reason to be breastfeeding a kid that age. She's only doing it because she gets her jollies off of it. All these pro-ebf moms will try and tell you they're doing it for their child and they believe in child-led-weaning, but that's an excuse for the fact that they DREAD the day when their child won't want to breastfeed. I've even heard some say they were so sad when their child stopped breastfeeding. That's because they think it sucks to have to go back to the sperm-maker for nipple action.

it's funny how everyone is focusing on the potty training aspect of this story and not on the fact that the father had to be court ordered to secure his pool for the safety of his child. Who cares about potty training, the father is an ASS to be so reckless with his kid's life!

If Kelly wanted to be a single mother with NO man involved, why did she have babies with a white man? A black baby daddy would have prevented her all this drama. She also could have done what Madonna and Mary Louise Parker did and buy a black baby. She could have gotten better PR that way too. Can't blame her for wanted blonde hair blue eyed kids though! American men take note! NEVER marry a woman you can't control. Does anyone know if she accused him of molestation yet or is she waiting until he finds a new woman to do so?

It seems many people can't get over the name Hermes, thinking it is the name of a luxury brand. Though not very common in the U.S.A., it is actually a normal first name just like Mercedes. I find names like Melody or Crystal ridiculous.

To "that's abnormal".

Please read what you write before you comment. ". . . stimulate her nipples . . . jollies off of it . . .sperm-maker for nipple action." What this woman or any woman for that matter does with her body is her business and not yours. Your nasty, twisted comments to a fellow female reflect that YOU ARE the one who is ABNORMAL. Consider therapy. I feel sad for the children you raise with such a small minded nasty mother. If you are indeed female - - shame on you.

The boy's name is pronounced "Air-mez" and does not rhyme with herpes.

I agree that people should be focusing on the Father not caring about the child's safety!! It only takes a split second for a child to drown. Maybe she's ordering the courts to stop the potty training because she feels her son isn't ready yet. Some kids train before the age of 2 and other not until closer to 4. Every child is different and I believe the main care giver (the Mother in this case) would know best.
As far as her still nursing it is completely normal. The AAP recommends a minimum of 12 months but preferably 24 months. The WHO recommends a minimum of 24 months. The average age of a child weaned around the world is 4.3 years. In America it is 6m. That goes to show you what is normal.
