    My MIL may give some people the heebie jeebies, but she also gave her grandbabies optimal nutrition and made it so her daughter could return to work. She was about 34-40 at the time, just to eliminate the visual of an 80yo granny.

    To answer the OP, my BFF's hubby was fed till 3. Share a book you said most people you know full term feed, is that a cultural thing? If so which culture? or do you just surround yourself with like minded people? I am just really interested

    Ive offered to see what jasper would say, he laughs and tells me boobies are for baby. But He 'helps' latch katelyn, he pats my boob when shes feeding, he tells me she wants boobies. Hes still very much a booby boy. Just in a different way.

    most asian cultures feed full term at least.
    in mongolia if you want your son to be a wrestler they 'have' to feed till at least 6.
    one of dhs aunties commented that her dd bf until the girls were 3/4, and thats the norm.

    What makes it a competition? I just see it is a question about something the OP was curious about, and mostly relevant answers being given.

    I don't care if someone bf til 6yo, I don't feel I've somehow come second or third or fourth place.. And nor do I feel like I win a prize if I outdo someone elses bfing history.

    Sorry but I found this comment to be a rather blatant generalisation that those who don't BF to "term" or who maybe FF don't put their child first.
    I found this statement very offensive.

    I can see how that would be upsetting, I've felt the same when I've had it implied that I'm not putting my kids first regarding other choices I've made, but I don't think that's what the PP meant here.
    I think the context is that this is the reason women may choose to breastfeed past 2 years, as opposed to being for the mothers benefit which was implied by another PP - meaning that the mother may actually be happy to discontinue, but she believes it's beneficial for her child, and so that's her reason for extended breastfeeding, not a selfish one.. If that makes sense?

    We all love and care for our children, and put them first in many ways, but everybody's individual lives (and children) are different. I really think its just that no mother would really breastfeed for 5 years because they aren't thinking of their child I guess..
