Why should anyone say anything against her? I'm 33 weeks pregnant and nursing my 2-year-old. And there's nothing weird about it. It's sad I'm the exception and not the norm.

Teeth hurt me! Lol. My son nursed until 18 months. Then I reclaimed my girls and retired them for recreation. To each their own. I figured when he could specifically ask to nurse, it was time to move on to the next phase. But that's me. I know women who nursed only a few months, and some who nursed a few years. Shrugs.

Usually if teeth hurt, there's a latch issue. Not saying you shouldn't have weaned when you wanted, just for anyone reading :).

You know what doesn't sound right to me? Poor grammar, spelling and "lolz". It doesn't sound right to you because you're obviously a poorly educated hick.

I am most definitely not poorly educated or a hick. Just because it says i live in NC does not mean i'm from here or a hick. I was born and raised in marin county CA.
I do admit that english is not my best subject, but i tried to take other classes in school to make up for it. Advanced architecture (3 years) , advanced art and photography (3 years), psychology (1 1/2 years), and lots of math and science to make up for my lack of english and history.

A good sign of being well educated is not engaging in pointless arguments on the internet. When you fight online, even if you win, you lose.

Im sorry everyone i was just trying to ask a simple question. Im sorry if my wording sounded like i was mean or mad at this women. I was just confused and wanted to know how other people did their breast feeding because i hear it different ways. I dont care what other people do I just wasnt sure, so i decided to ask.
Im sorry everyone wants to be mean to me about it :( im only 23 and im pregnant with my first baby, i most definitely want to try breast feeding .
I hear alot from people that breast feed untill the baby is 2,3,4. Then i also hear from other people that say oh no wean them off when they are getting teeth.
I didnt know if it was the same concept as bottle feeding or different.

Im sorry i wasnt trying to fight. I dont know anything about breast feeding and i want to try it. I just wasnt sure if its the same as what i hear about baby bottles. I hear alot of you have to wean them off the bottle at like 9 months to a years and have them on a sippy cup. Im sure alot of weaning depends on the child too.
Honeslt i dont think i could breast feed as long as some you :) but ive never dont it so i dont know how long i will even be able to go. I hear it hurts (but only for a lil bit) I think if i can get over that bump I should be ok. just have to wait and see.

I didnt know that, how is it different ? because it softer? wont push the teeth as much?
I know breastfeeding is alot better for baby and mommy, nutrition, bonding, ect.

Well your first mistake was posting this in D and D... I was just debating your intelligence :lol:

No, it's nto the same as weaning from a bottle. It doesn't fuck up their teeth because it's NATURAL. Most children will wean on their own between 2 and 5 if allowed to. However in our culture and society we find it as "weird" because we have fucked up the natural order of things.



Do your research, breastfeeding as long as possible and allowing the child to self wean is nutritionally superior.

Having your first kid is scary! Breast feed as long as you feel comfortable. I have friends that will stop at 12 months and then their is my ex-sister in law who did it until her sons were 4. Make sure it's when YOU want to. Don't let anyone else tell you other wise. Good luck!
