I'm just curious what everyone thinks is the max limit that someone should breastfeed till.  Whether it is what you would choose or not, what do you think is just plain to old period, assuming that the child doesn't ween on their own.

This poll only relates to women in the United States not foreign or underdeveloped countries.

*No getting nasty ladies.  It's just a poll not a major debate.

Why do people keep posting this same topic/debate over and over again? There is already a heated debate on the matter going on in this group.

Sorry...Just get tired of seeing it.

Although your poll options do have me laughing! laughing

It's not meant to be a debate.  I don't want to hear why anyone thinks a certain age should or shouldn't.  I'm just curious.  I hear the topic a lot and just wanted more clarity into what every one's idea of self weaning (of weening period) extends to.   Is there ever a limit? 

Really, just honestly curious.  No judgement here.

I'm was trying to include all possibilities. 

Although I guess I should have added in until mother hits menopause, becuase that might dry her up.

Yes and No (you're the one who made a post about a five year old BF or something like that right?).  I saw the post, but didn't really read it or the comments to it.  Whenever I see something that has over 100 comments I figure it has turned out bad. 

In general I hear about self weaning, which I'm not putting down in the least.  I think every woman has an idea of when that child will self wean by.  For some it's before a couple years, others may be up for it till school age, or later.  I ASSUME that there isn't anyone who would keep at it until puberty, but please correct me if I'm wrong.  

I seriously want to know what everyone thinks.  

Although it's good to laugh to-lightens the tension.
