Just a personal opinion here (I have never bf this will be my first try so I may change my mind) but I came image myself doing it past 1 year or walking and talking

Woah this is an old one. lol Having said that I couldn't imagine going past 6 months, then it came & went, I couldn't imagine going past 1 it came & went. It's not as weird as you think it would be when you actually get there. Plus my son was walking & talking very plainly at 10 months.

1 mom liked this

when the child is ready to wean.  Still nursing my 23 mo. old and when he is ready to quit, that is when we will move on.   I personally cannot stand it when people will ask me if my son is still nursing-they will say things like, "well he's over a year old, and "he's got teeth".  As if once they turn one year old, the old tap shuts off, or when people say "when they can ask for it"-well my son has been asking for it since he was nine months old, should I have cut him off then?  PEOPLE! :) Do what is right and comfortable for you and your child.  Don't let outsiders influence your decision. :)

There's a woman in India that got pregnant at 70 or 72 (she's not sure of her actual age) through ivf 20 years after menopause and she's successfully breastfeeding. Don't feel old!

I don't even know if you're asking about the age of the mother or the child…

ha ha! I didn't even think of that! I'm 44 (and nursing DD) and sometimes I feel too old!
