I am not sure where would be the best place to post this either 12+ or criticism so I will post it in both places. My whole family breastfeeds they say they are very probreastfeeding. However no one has ever nursed past a year. The longest besides me is my younger sister who nursed til 10 months. I am still nursing my son who is now 40 months. We have talked about weaning I have read How Weaning Happens and had just decided he would wean when ready. I have put limits on breastfeeding. We no longer breastfeed in public or around a lot of other people. Well last night my youngest sister who is 23 and single stayed over watching a movie and spent the night. Most of my sisters are pretty comfortable with their bodies and I felt comfortable nursing in front of her and did a couple of times. She didn't say anything. In the back of the mind I was hoping she would think it was natural and one day nurse her toddlers. Well another sister just called me (I have four sisters all have nursed a LO except the youngest) and said the youngest sister was really disturbed my me breastfeeding LO. They think he is too old and too big ( 95percentile for height and weight). First of all it's not his fault he's tall. I have tried to explain it to them but they say it wierd and then say they are afraid he will grow up to be a pervert. I've told them that's not how it works but they don't get it. I am pretty determined to do what's best for LO but it makes me sad that now I feel like I should totally closet breastfeed so no one knows and they will all get off my back. Those of you who have done extended nursing can you please right and tell me how weaning happened for you and your little one and how you handled these situations and it would be great to know that your kids are well adjusted. My sisters have always been my best friends but I am considering lying to them and telling everyone LO has weaned would that be wrong.
