For me it is a child over 2 that I consider extended.

This thread is five years old

I set my minimum number nursing years at 2 since, according to even the mostly mainstream AAP, children up to two need a full fat milk and breastmilk has more than other milk sources. So to me, more than 2 years is extended.

Most children, around the globe, are nursed 4-7 yrs. - so I'd say "extended" is anything beyond that.
