I still like "Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy" rather than "Breastfeeding Beyond One Year/Two Years", because every baby ceases to be an infant at a different time

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.
|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)|

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.
