How old did you wean?

I nurse until the child decides to wean. I am a firm supporter of nursing until at least 2.

But I can imagine some women on here would say that. What HASN'T been said? *rolls eyes*

 he is nearly 15months old..i am a full supporter of nursing as long as you want but that was just not my personal choice.

I weaned my daughter at 16 months...it was a mutual decision sort of. I regret it though... Make sure its what you really want.

You cant starve him if you feed him other foods. When did you wean him & is there a reason why you weaned him or gave him formula?

My youngest is 1 1/2 yrs old and I am a stay at home, co-sleeping mom who is still breastfeeding and will probley breastfeed until age 3 or 4 yrs old like I did with my 4 yr old daughter, but I respect both bf and formula feeding parents

Poor baby!! Ds nursed until 3 and then I pumped for him because I was then nursing dd who was a new born.. 

He was fully weaned by 4 and dd was weaned (by her choice) at 20mth - it made me sad!! LOL

Eh, it's cafemom, there are plenty on here who'd call Mother Theresa a selfish b%•# if she dared post something that bothered them and wasn't what they would choose to do.
I don't know how anybody sane could call a woman selfish who nursed 15 months! (said by the woman who nursed way longer) There's nothing wrong with that. And unless you weaned and also decided to forgo food, I don't see how you're starving him. He'll eat if he's hungry enough. Just ignore them, you being bothered is their reward and they don't deserve it.
