Mayim Bialik, who stars on sitcom The Big Bang Theory, reveals that she's gotten lots of "flak" for breastfeeding her son Fred until age 4.

"People laughed and sneered, but it wasn't wrong," Bialik, who is an advocate of attachment parenting, tells InTouch. "Just because you do something your way doesn't mean you can judge people who don't. If I breast-feed and you don't, it's OK. I don't think I'm a better mom, and my kids aren't necessarily better off than yours."

The actress, who has two sons (8-year-old Miles and 5-year-old Fred), says she's gotten a lot of "flak" on social media for her decision.

"People say really mean things!" she tells the magazine.
