I want to know if the length of time breastfeeding a baby is determined by the gender of the baby.
If you had a daughter would you nurse her past 12months? or short of 12 months?
If you had a son would you nurse him past 12 months or just short of 12 months?
And why is that so?

I have a boy, and he is 12.5 months. I plan on BF him as long as he wants, and if he were a she, I would feel the same way. To me it's not about the gender, its about BF. To It is in the best interest of the child, AND the rest of the world. If every mother did the right think and BF their children at LEAST 12 months (which I agree is a poor minimum) the world would be a less sickly place. BF doesn't just help a person as baby, it makes healthier for the rest of their lives.. .and not only them, but the mother as well. And as a woman, and mother of a breastfeeding child I also do not appreciate use of the word "tit." Obviously, someone uneducated enough to use the word "tit" when talking about BF wouldn't know that BF has extreme benefits past 12 months and you cannot replace BM with Cows milk. In almost every other country, it is a child's birth right to nurse for at LEAST the first two years.
