Mayim Bialik’s 4 year old son, Frederick Heschel Bialik Stone, has been weaned. This means the little dude will be detoxing from breastfeeding. Says Mayim: “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss being able to latch him on and make it all better,” Bialik went on. “We have other ways to soothe Fred now. When he’s very very upset or very very hurt, we lay on the couch where he nursed countless mornings, afternoons, and evenings, and we rock and I sing to him his favorite lullabies. And he holds me tight, and I hold him tight, and I know that there was never ever ever anything wrong with nursing Fred. Even when he was in 4T jeans. With a mouth full of teeth. Even when people laughed and sneered and accused me of horrible things no mother should ever be accused of when tending to the normal and beautiful needs of her mammal child. It was never wrong and it was always right.”

Mayim Bialik is currently playing Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit TV series The Big Bang Theory.
