Anyone ever been told to stop?

My son is almost 15m and I've never been told.

You're only protected up to 12 months by law. It can be awkward for others seeing an older child nursing.

I had a pediatrician that said all babies should stop nursing at 6 months.  I quickly found a new doctor for my kids.

My state law doesn't have an age limit. Does yours?


I live in California, didn't know states had age limits

Do you mean have I ever been in a public place nursing and had someone tell me to stop or someone like a family member tell me they thought my child was 'too old' to be nursing? Either way, no I never did encounter either of the above situations. If anyone ever had tried to tell me to stop nursing in public, I would have read them the riot act! If any family/friend tried to tell me my child was 'too old' to still be nursing, I would have said, "Thanks--but if I wanted your opinion, I would have asked for it--so since I didn't ask for your opinion. shut up!!!"
