I have never breastfed, I'm just not comfortable with it, but I think its great for the mothers who are. BUT, I just don't understand why a woman would want to continue breastfeeding after the age of 1. I know its healthier, but the thought of a walking, talking child still attached to a mothers nip grosses me out. Pump it atleast. After 1 is bad enough, but I've seen mothers on here who say they will or have breastfed up to the age of 5! Your child is old enough to go to school and it still breastfeeding?? There is just something really, really wrong with that, IMO. Agree? Disagree?

Ugh. It's none of your business. And it's normal and natural. Why do you have an opinion on something you know NOTHING about?

The normal human weaning age is 2.5 to 7 years. That's fact. Get over it.

You have some issues that you need to discuss with your therapist

If it is gross past 1, then no, you're not educated on breastfeeding. One is half of the minimum.

The normal human age to procreate is during the teenage years but we don't consider that acceptable.
