‘Big Bang Theory’ star Mayim Bialik confirms she’s weaned her 4-year-old son

Mayim Bialik, star of the Big Bang Theory, said in a recent interview that she just stopped nursing her son Fred this past November. Trouble is, Fred was four years old by then which has raised some eyebrows.

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss being able to latch him on and make it all better. We have other ways to soothe Fred now,” Mayim wrote on the Jewish website Kveller.

The actress elaborated on the breastfeeding details.

“From the time that Fred night-weaned a year ago, he was nursing about once a day, but not always once a day. Sometimes he’d go a few days without nursing. After night-weaning, he could nurse anywhere but in the bed, since it invariably made him think of nursing all night, which he did like a real champ for his entire happy milky life until he was 3. And I didn’t want to go back to that,” she explained.

“I nursed Fred four to six times a night for three years. I pumped at work for Fred from the time I got the job on The Big Bang Theory when he was 18 months old until he was 3. I didn’t nurse him literally anywhere, anytime, but I made sure to meet his needs and have mine satisfied as well,” Mayim added.
