It's because, as with any other decision a parent may make, it's what they feel is best for the child.
This doesn't automatically make not extended breastfeeding a selfish choice.
Heck, after my daughter, my son weaned before he turned 2.
Feeding until 4.5 was the best thing for my daughter, but feeding until 22 months was the best thing for my son..
Yes, I think my daughter got more benefits from being breastfed until 4.5, but this doesn't mean that I feel I cared less about my son because he weaned 2+ years earlier than she did..

My cousin fed her ds until he was 3. Her mum (my Aunty) fed a few of her kids until 4. I know a work mate who bf both her sons until they were 4 & 6 and have known many mums of the preschoolers I teach who continue until they are at least 5

I'm feeding a 20 mo. (not right this second, but probably in about 4 hours, 5 if I'm lucky, 6 if I'm REALLY lucky!) I don't personally know anyone who has fed a 20 mo so I guess the oldest bf person I know is my son. I'm getting quite a bit of pressure to stop, mainly from my mum.
