You don't?
My first real memory was at 2 getting tubes in my ears.

I've been either breastfeeding or pumping since March 16 2006, except for when I was pregnant with my last baby because DD weaned herself a week before finding out I was pregnant. When LO reaches 2 I'm done. Thats almost 8 years of BFing. I have no problem with extended breastfeeding but honestly I think once they hit 4 it's been long enough. But I would never say anything to the mother because that is their decision not mine.

Whats your point exactly?
I said I feel like if a kid a hold and drink from a cup at THREE, then I see no reason to continue nursing from the BREAST.
That's my opinion.

We'' stop when DD wants to, unless for some reason I need to stop sooner.

Lol I said that was my opinion.
I never said anyone should stop breastfeeding if they don't want to.
I'm entitled to my own opinion.

You didn't say "at three". I'm sure you can understand the responses then.

This isn't the opinion forum, it's for discussions and debates. So you think if a 7 month old can drink from a cup the mother should stop breastfeeding?

My older kids remember nursing, they have fond memories of it. I don't see how that's a bad thing.

What you said was "If he can hold a cup, he doesn't need a boobie." You said nothing about age in the post I quoted.

Right? Breastfeeding isn't a negative thing. Who cares if they remember it?
