When my ds was only 11 months old, my very EX husband threatened to report me for child abuse if I didn't wean him from the breast by the time he was a year old! I gave in, and have regretted it to this day. That was ten years ago. After watching my sister nurse her baby for three years, I vowed that my next baby I would nurse for as long as possible. I now have a daughter. We are five months in now, and going strong. I want to go for at least two years, and after that, I'll let HER decide when to stop.
