  • When they're old enough to ask for it.

  • when they can come up to you lift your shirt up and undo your bra and do it all themselves. or when they can ask for it, whichever comes first.

  • When it is none of my business. That is between a mother and child...not any one else.

  • I think you should stop breastfeeding by at least 85... I mean I would assume at that age all the kid would get is powdered milk :p

  • I also think that a child is too old for water when they are old enough to ask for it. What? That makes no sense? Oh, because weaning from the breast because a child can now ask to nurse makes no sense to ME.

  • OMG this again. For those who said when they ask for it then my kids should have stopped at 6 months old because they learned to sign for it and that is ridiculous in my book. Personally when the child and mother are ready for my kids that was 18 months and 35 months old. Oh and I was also one of those moms who nursed in public "gasp" and without covering sometimes too "gasp gasp".
