Breastfeeding past 80 is gross.



Lolno.



I don't care. Self-weaning FTW. My 3 YOs stopped just shy of and just after their 3rd birthday, respectively. Once in a while they still need it but it's seldom. My 2nd child nursed until she was 4. My first nursed until she was barely 2. Sophie is still going strong and she'll be 2 in 2 weeks.



Each of them have different needs. Some emotional, some physical. I'm here to meet their needs, not meet society's needs to be comfortable with my b**bs and how I use them.

Same with my almost-2YO :( She's had some health problems but even that doesn't account for her lack of appetite. She's teeny. She actually seems to detest food, probably traumatized after spending 21 of her 23 months being sick because of a food allergent in her table food and my breastmilk. Breaks my heart to watch her cry at every. single. meal. Normally we don't push food if our kids aren't hungry but they all eat normally. The more we push, the less she eats, so breastmilk really is keeping her from having to have medical intervention at this point.

Lmao well humans just love differently -- I do some "cat swatting" sometimes when my 21-month-old wants to nurse and I'm busy doing something else by saying "not right now.." :P but animals in the wild instinctively know when to stop so I trust that my child does too.
