when my son turned one and I decided we weren't ready to wean I joined LLL. It was great to talk with other women who shared my view of the importance of breastfeeding. LO turned 3 the end of August. My mom will occasionally make comments and so will my sisters. I just ignore them it help that I am a IBCLC so I know science and research is on my side. My family is not interested in hearing the benefits or that the rest of the world breastfeeds for this long, they say oh well that's third world countries. Even my husband is a convert to the whole idea but luckily he has supported me. Although now he is more actively trying to help me wean. But I am, like JoMo said just taking it one day at a time. Some days he won't even ask for his morning nursing until he's been up over an hour and I hold my breath thinking maybe he'll skip it he hasn't let but he usually eat 2-4 times a day and there's been lots of days where he just nurses once. Once my mom told me nursing a three year old was unheard of and I just stated that I knew lots of women who did (thinking of my LLL) friends. That kind of shut her up she quietly said well I don't.
