i was wondering what you ladies thought about this:
I might make someone mad..but that is too long to me to breastfeed..I would not do it after 2 or 3 and 3 for me is pushing it..JMO
Quoting MilesOfSmiles7:People can do what they want. I just think it's a bad idea to exploit the fact that your child who is in school is still nursing. When that word gets around, chances are he/she's going to get bullied for it.
This has been posted so many times, this child weaned within weeks of this documentary. We arent them, we dont know what their relationship is like so we haev no place to say anything about it.
That being said, I generlaly think I would rather be weaned before kindergarten, just because well...they are 5 and I no longer see them as a baby at all.
I thought when I had my older 2 that nursing past 1 was pointless, I didnt understand why anyone would nurse longer. Once I had my 3rd I learned all kinds of thing and I allowed him to selfwean at age 3.5 years. It wasnt strange at all to nurse him like I thought it would be.
Til you are there you have no idea and either way no one has the right to tell a mom she is wrong for nursing no matter the age.
For those of you that WON't Nurse past a year ....WHY?
Is it because ff babies are weaned at a year?
Do you know that the WHO recommends a minimum of 2 years?
Do you know WHY people nurse longer?
