I am feeling very alone and secretive about the fact my 4 year old, (49months) still nurses.
Although I started out believing I would only nurse for less than a year, I slowly realized Child lead weaning was logical to me, (along with most attachment parenting ways).
She basically only nurses at night, (occasionally during the day if she is sick). I am so embarrassed the odd time we are out and she asks for "milkie".
I believe its only abnormal because "society" has labelled it that way. I know anthropologically, (is that a word, ), it is appropriate. and deep inside I am OK with it but I still feel this way.
Is there anyone out there in a similar situation or was at some point? Has anyone nursed for an extended time that led to a negative outcome for the child?
