    I believe it's anything over 12 months, no?
    That's considered extended -- in this (USA) country, anyway! Most places other than the US see BF with a longer average length of time - more like 2 or more years?

    I think it's a reward in itself to know you can do it. To not get rediculed by others and to have a congradulations by someone you don't know. To know that other moms can do it and so can you. Now when your kids have kids you can encourage them to do the same thing and I think thats a great reward because you can see the acomplishment again.
