So I know a lot of mom's like to bf until their kids are off to college lol. My sister BF until her son was 5 and people made a big stick over it I did not see a problem with. I bf my son until he was almost 2 but I wanted my body back. So I just wanted to know at what age did you stop BF your child and was there a reason.

Stopped nursing DD at 26 months.
My minimum goal was 2 years for religious reasons. She still wanted to nurse 2 months past 2 years. One day she just didn't ask to nurse before bed and that was the end of it!

DS is 4 months and still nursing, I will nurse him for 2 years and after that its up to him!

My daughter just weaned a week or two ago and she is 10 months. She weaned because I'm 7 months pregnant and she didn't like the taste or the fact that there's barely anything in there.

My youngest is 14 months and we're still breastfeeding. I'll let her stop when she's ready.

I formula fed my oldest so 14 months is my longest, so far!

My son turned 2 on May 2nd and is showing no sign whatsoever of weaning. He still nurses very, very frequently (every 2 hours or so, day and night). I'd like my breasts back. Sometimes I'm ready for him to wean. But then I'm not, because he's not. He can nurse as long as he likes.

 I stopped much, much sooner than you or your sister.

My 1st two I was unable to keep up my supply after I went to work, even with a pump.

My 3rd had a milk allergy.

I would have loved to breast feed until near 2.
