    Mayim is Modern Orthodox mixed with Hollywood new-age nuttiness.

    Do Orthodox women generally cover their hair? I actually wondered if she was wearing a wig, but after the What Not To Wear show, it was clear she wasn't.

    It's all interesting to me.

    She's not really that Orthodox. She's much more New Age Hollywood Nut who still breastfeeds her 3 year old son, didn't vaccinate her children, and thinks that the whole family should sleep in one bed together, well into childhood.

    After seeing her with her frumpy outfits and hunched shoulders and creepy smile, I was shocked at how good she looked. She has a surprisingly attractive smile.

    Indeed, not vaccinating is crazy.

    Family sleeping together is certainly not my cup of tea, but I don't see any problem with it. My 5 year old still crawls in if a thunderstorm wakes her up.

    But do you really consider breastfeeding a 3 year old so crazy? Can you point to an authority to back that up? We talked about with our pediatrician and read a good bit about it. Pretty much everything we heard or read said it was fine and normal. If anything they suggested that the modern notions that breastfeeding was wrong (thankfully changed since my parents generation) or should be stopped so soon were unsupported by the science on the issue...

    And endangers the rest of the human population.

    I have reasons for not liking co-sleeping, particularly past a certain age. I don't agree with her on that or the breastfeeding thing. But some of the rest of it I find interesting.
