In your opinion?
Quoting maggiemom2000:Since all children will naturally wean in their own time I don't think I can put a number on it. The natural age of weaning is between 2.5-7 years, and virtually all children will wean in that timeframe.
In other words, a child who is too old to nurse will not be nursing!
Quoting ThePinkRobot:I don't even know if you're asking about the age of the mother or the child…
Too old is when the child can no longer latch due to changes in the jaw due to losing the baby teeth.
HMMM when they go to college???
I think my limit is between 4-5..I used to say 4 but my guy nursed til 3.5 and it still wasnt wierd at all for me so I think it changes overtimes....at first I thought a year was wierd and then I thought pver 2 was wierd and its changed as my guy got older...
Quoting aehanrahan:Too old is when the child can no longer latch due to changes in the jaw due to losing the baby teeth.
For me personally, or an overall rule? For me personally, past a year. As an overall rule, I don't think there is or should be a specific cutoff age.
