  • YES. my child is 23 months, and unless he decides it's time to stop, i don't plan to stop for several more months. he does only nurse 1-3 times per day, and for very short durations, so i appreciate that ;)

  • Why shouldn't they? What is so wrong with it? The child still gets nourishment from the milk.

    How is breastfeeding any different than giving a 2 or 3 year old COW milk? The cup is a breast, the milk is made for human consumption.

  • I wouldn't, but that's just me. The nutrition in breastmilk drops off as a child ages, so it's not a nourishment issue. I think it's more of a comfort issue and I have taught my children to find comfort in other sources by the time they were 13-14 months.

  • Depends on the person. I don't know if I would or not. I haven't been able to bf past nine months for various reasons.
