~Bump~

I had to save this from the abyss of the second page, especially when it's so close to 100 votes! Is anyone still following it besides me?

Yes - I shall never abandon the cause.

My understanding is that it has been brought to their attention and they are currently deliberating and will render a decision.

I love this idea! I vote for "Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy" too! I think it's immediately apparent to people perusing the boards what it's referring to, without having to pin down a specific age, or label a child "older" just because they're 13 months old.

Ditto! My ds will not be a year old for two more weeks, but about a month ago I decided he was most certainly NOT an infant any longer. We're on to toddler things now!

Good luck with the decision to ttc. :

This is just an idea to throw out there but I was thinking that maybe this forum should be broken down even further than it is now, perhaps into two forums......one being "the older nursling", "sustained breastfeeding", "nursing beyond infancy" or whatever is decided....and the other being "Child-led Weaning". I'm only suggesting this because I've noticed that the forum does move quickly and new posts get lost in the 2nd page within a day usually. Plus there are those of us who are child-led weaning and those of us who are not...and those of us who are just taking it one day at a time and haven't decided yet. We could all benefit from both forums, but posts won't get lost so quickly and will be easier to decipher and follow along.

I don't know. It's just an idea. I'll be fine with whatever decision. BUT I do hope the "extended" gets taken out. I just dug up an old quote that stuck with me for the past two years. I finally got the owner's name of it. It's simple but says it perfectly....

The phrase 'extended nursing' should be stricken from the language, so that there is simply...nursing. 'Extended' implies a 'stretching out' of something--I haven't stretched out my children's nursing time, I've just met their needs. (Posted by Joan)

I think it's a good idea!

"Natural Duration Nursing" or something like it.

Anything else assumes that nursing beyond 1 year is unusual or abnormal, even if it is in our culture, at least it is the norm in others.

yup ITA

and, yes, I am still lurking here, too!

I like the current title for the reason that it is kind of vague. Everyone interprets "extended breastfeeding" a different way, so this title is more all encompassing.

Well, even though there are well over 100 votes in, and two popular threads on the topic, there still has been no sign of action. Not even a response

Oh well, at least our hearts are in the right place.

Take care of your foot.

I hope your foot is okay M.A.N. (love your initials!)

Sorry to hear about your foot, MAN.

I'm still lurking here...........
