So according to my mother -_- since ds2 is a year old and needs to stop using bottles, he need to stop breast feeding too! I couldn't believe she said that, as if the two things are even remotely related.smh! I just looked at her like she was dumb and said they weren't the same and he would quit when he was ready. I wish people that gave "information" would actually do research first.

Crazy. My mom gives me grief about wanting to nurse past one, yet she gave my sister a bottle until 3! That really makes no sense to me.

Unfortunately breastfeeding has become kind of taboo. You do what you believe is best for your child. Hopefully in the near future breastfeeding will be the norm again : )

I recently read that someone was informed by an orthodontist that breastfeeding to 2 or 3 helped with proper pallet formation. That could save you $5k+ on braces!!!

I feel so blessed to have a mother that extended breast fed my sister and I and is so supportive of me. Also, I was raised in a family where almost all the women breast fed. So I didn't even realize there were women who didnt do that for the longest time. Its silly to me that something so natural and healthy is looked down upon so much.

i stopped bottle feeding my daughter at 1, and just fed on demand, it was my attempt at weaning. I dont know why some ppl think the two go hand and hand.

She has been after me to quit for a few months now. She also doesn't think I should still be nursing in public because he is so big (27lbs 13 months) because its gross. I don't get how it would be ok if he was smaller/younger but not anymore. What makes it gross all of the sudden?

Yes. Breastfeeding at least 2 years is the single best way to prevent the baby from needing braces.

Unfortunately for me, my kids are missing adult teeth like me so need braces to make space for an implant in the future.

My MIL asks me all the time when I'm going to stop Bf-ing my 18 month old. I tell her to ask him because I'm not stopping until he weans himself. She thinks that's the only reason why I won't let him spend the night, when really I just don't want to be away from my baby that long.

This REALLY sold my husband on full term breastfeeding! His teeth are a hot mess, and he wants braces as an adult. If we can save our child from serious head gear, that will be awesome!
