  • If they can ask you for it in full sentences, they are too old. Personally, I think weaning at 1 year is a really good idea. It is definitely a personal choice to nurse beyond that, and I support it. I just can't see myself sending my dd to preschool with a sippy of breastmilk and definitely won't nurse her that long.

    My DD was 2 when she stopped & she could talk very well. I even told her that she drank it all in order to stop BD & she believed me.

  • I agree, if they can ask for it in a complete sentence or walk up to you and just whip it out for themselves lol they are too old... I would start weaning around 1

  • 3-4 seems old. Although, it would not "creep" me out...but i might think "holy cow, that lady is BF a large child" & then I'd be on my way.
