At what age is breastfeeding legally considered sexual abuse?

I think each family should do whatever is right for their family, but I hear a million arguments around here, some saying that breastfeeding past 1 or 2 is gross/sexual/etc.

Are there actual laws concerning such? Genuinely curious.

I don't think so, but I've never checked it out.

When a child is given the breast for comfort instead of nutrition. I find it verging into sexual abuse.

I don't know. But I was at the library today for kids story time and a girl (5-6) walked up to her mom (who was sitting) pulled down her shirt and started nursing.....I felt that was weird, and I am pro breast feeding.

I don't think so. As long as youre still producing. The comfort thing is weird and hopefully illegal.

I don't think there are. But kids wean themselves at a certain point. Usually between 2-6 years of age. 6 is at the high end obviously. That's why you don't see middle schoolers breast feeding lol.

Idk but 3 if they say I want boob now. All they know is they are getting feed so it depends on the mother mentality.
