My mother has this friend who recently confessed that she breastfed her daughter until she was 5! She said that she had wanted to weane her off sooner but that it was a no-go. If you need a visual, imagine Suri Cruise still latched on....yeah.
Now me personally I think this is creeptastic and that it probably has more to do with the mother than the kid not wanting to be weaned.
How long did/do you plan on breastfeeding your kids? If you breastfed past 2 is there any particular reason? How old do you think is "too damn old" to be breastfeeding? Please let me know =)

I don't necessarily think it's the mother's wants over the child. Sure the mom doesn't want to lose the bond, but I'm sure she wants her body back as well. After all, if the kid didn't want it, why'd he come in and lift up her shirt to get some? He just needs to be shown boundaries and that should have been done at a much younger age. When my daughter weaned herself, I gave her the opportunity to eat and she just kept her mouth closed. She didn't want it anymore. That kid does.
