So, I saw the post with the article about the awesome woman nursing her five yr old, and she doesn't give a crap what anyone thinks. So, since most people in this country are clueless and many ignorant about child lead weaning, here I am a real person who has a normal and healthy 10 yr old, who just stopped nursing 5 yrs ago.
Call me gross, I won't be offended. I would just like to clear up people's misconceptions about why a mother nurses to a ripe old age. There are many.
My personal reason. Before I had my DD I had all the same misconceptions and thought it was weird too. But I'm not narrow minded, and after lots of reading about the nature of breast feeding, I decided on child lead weaning. Although, I chose to stop when she tunred 5, not her. So, it wasn't truly child lead for us. I grew tired of it.
