What age do I stop: 1 year-18 months bottle, 1-2 years breast, paci never mattered to me as long as they didn't suck their thumbs. At what point do I think other parents are crazy: 3 year bottle, 5 years breast, and again the paci is not a big deal especially if they are only doing it at home. If a 1-2 year old is interacting with other kids with the darn thing in his mouth how great are his speech skills going to be? So , my point being that my expectations of normal and my definition of crazy has a pretty broad spectrum.

Two. Anything past that is just being lazy. They don't want to deal with the bottle/breast withdrawals; the crying and the whining and the sleepless nights.

I don't know much about pacifiers or bottle feeding, but for me( and only me) I think 2 years is my cap for BF. My DD could drink breast milk from a sippy cup at 6 months. She never took to a bottle, which was an incredible hardship for me because I couldn't leave her until 6 months. My DD sucks her thumb and her pediatrician said most thumb suckers naturally stop around 4-5 which is when it begins to start problems. He said before than its no big deal and just a way to self soothe.
