My family started to ask me about when I was going to wean around 18 months, because that's when my DD#2 weaned, but Will shows no signs of stopping. BF is almost non existent around here, so when he was about 18 months I stopped nursing in public. He is too squirmy and too particular about position and side to do it discreetly anymore. If I saw other women nursing toddlers and I lived in a different area, I would probably still nurse in public, too. I'm sure if a lot of friends and acquaintances knew we were still nursing, they would be shocked. It is just not done around here.

Gabbie 3/8/02 BF 15 months
Rose 6/5/04 BF 18 months
Will 10/6/09 BF 22 months and counting
at 10 months, I had people shocked... saying " hold on, YOU ARE STILL BREASTFEEDING???"
at 12 months... people asked me when I was going to wean. EVERYONE asked that.
And pretty much ever since then... people think I am a total weirdo!
Cheers to 22 months and counting!!
BTW my MIL is pushing for us to wean at 2.
Momma to Benjamin, we recently made it nursing to age 2!!!!

I have seen women in my country NIP toddlers, but sadly, its mostly indigenous women and theres a bit of racism... I was wondering when I would stop feeling comfy NIP since I am moving to another country and idk how "acceptable" it is there, but I figure as long as its legal (and it is) I dont have a problem nursing a 6 yr old in public
