  • If it's OK with you and OK with your daughter, your good.

  • When I say this i am not trying to sound rude but "it's your body and you don't need permission from anyone to continue to nurse your daughter". I personally would not nurse past a year, but that's just me. I have heard of women nursing their kids at night only at 4 yrs old. To each his(or her) own i say.

    If she is comfortable and you are too, who cares what anyone else thinks?

  • A booby girl you have. I've heard people nursing up to age 4. If it's comfortable for both continue. Let your booby girl enjoy mommy's milk. It's good for her anyway. :+)

  • Huh...i think that is to old to be nurseing. She is going to have a hard time stopping. what are you going to do when she is in school? stop on by when she wants a drink?

  • It's the best thing you can give your kids, so why not? =) And, when she's in school... if you still want to nurse her and she still wants it, you can always just nurse her at bedtime. No need to stop by school! LOL

  • It's your choice. I don't personally agree with it, as I think that a child shouldn't go past age one.. If that. However, they aren't my breasts, and it's not my kid, so I have no say in what you do with them. Nurse as long as you want.
