yes-the first 6 months-my milk dried up so I had no choice

and nobody's ever said crap to me about public breast feeding other then maybe a mom offering a better position for Baby.

I breast fed my son until he was 16 months old. We stopped because he weaned on his own due to some issues he has. I would have kept going until he naturally weaned. No one ever said anything to me about breast feeding in public other than my mom.

6 weeks with first, hated it and my milk dried up.

Didn't with my second.

Both are happy, healthy kids.

I think that is a good time to stop.

 Babies need to progress and clinging to a breast prevents progress.

not necessarily-if my milk had continued I would have breast fed straight up until she was one-only by then I'd pump.

I know plenty of babies that were breast fed til they were 1-1 1/2yrs old and they weren't clinging or lacking in hitting their milestones.

How does breastfeeding prevent progress?

Total ridiculous fluff. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommend breastfeeding until one year and some of the most secure and independent children are breastfed.

Of course you are right! Breastfeeding does not create over dependence or interfere with healthy exploration.

First DS could never latch properly so I pumped for three months. Second breastfed for 9 months and just wasn't interested any more. He walked at 9 months though, and wasn't much for being held once he was mobile.
