    My daughter has a friend who bf'd til she was 6. She remembers it fondly, and seems very protective of little kids' need for nurturing.

    My DS1 was almost 4 when we weaned and he remembers it a little. He too is very nurturing and very caring with little kids. In fact his friend's little siblings all flock to him and act like he's a rock star. DS2 also adores him!

    It just solidifies my belief in "extended" nursing and my belief that only good comes out of fully meeting your child's needs.

    A while ago, I asked that question of a mama (who has dropped off the forum as far as I can tell) who had breastfed until she was 4, and she said she had nice memories of it. She chose to breastfed her own child, too!

    I remember snuggling in my Mama's lap and asking for "milk-a-bee". I weaned at around three and a half. I don't remember details, but I get warm fuzzies from the memories I have. Not weird at all.

    My mom breastfed me for a year. I don't remember it, but it was definitely a reason why I wanted to breastfeed my own children.

    I don't remember details, like the taste or the feel of her breast in my mouth, but I have warm fuzzy memories of being in my mom's arms (nursing). I do have a very clear memory of my weaning party, though!

    I nursed till I was 2ish and I don't remember details. But I remember my mom nursing my brothers and she always talked about how much she loved nursing us. I never for a second considered anything besides breastfeeding when I became a mom!

    DH remembers nursing as a toddler. He and his siblings BFed until about age 3, some tandem nursed. They also co-slept.

    (on a tangent, I think I have the opposite of most situations- my MIL is in favor of EBF, baby led solids, and co-sleeping. My own family is not so much, though they are accepting of whatever we want to do. Sorry- )
