My daughter is currently 15 months old.  She still breastfeeds twice a day.  My mom thinks it's crazy that I am still breastfeeding.  My husband doesn't care either way.  How old was your child when you stopped breastfeeding?

No one should play a role in when you wean except you and your child.

My son self weaned between 11-12 months old. I am glad, I cannot imagine breast feeding him now (2 1/2yrs). For me it is weird. I don't judge others who do it though. I think it is a person choice.

What matters is what you think?  It's your body, if you're fine with nursing still, that's great.  I only breast fed for 4 months. I wish it had been longer.
