Momma, you have gotten some great advice. I, too, was planning on weaning at the one year mark. No one in our families had ever breastfed to a year and very few had tried at all. I honeslty don't mention it much to people outside our little home, unless I know they are extended breastfeeding friendly. We are now at the 21 month mark and still going strong. I wouldn't take that tool away if someone told me to. When my little guy is in the midst of teething and seems so miserable, he can nurse, and the world gets so much better for him. There is a ton of info on the benefits of extended bf, but that alone makes it so worth it to me.
