I was born in 1974 and was nursed about 10-11m, when I self weaned. When I was a few months old, my Dad was a SAHD while my Mom worked because she made more money, so she hand expressed for bottles of bm for me. I started weaning when my family encouraged my Mom to give me water at around 6m because it was Florida and summer, no air conditioning, and they were convinced I needed it to not have heat stroke. I got solids fairly early, mainly because I was interested and liked them. My Mom looked and acted very conservative, but was very natural living, whole foods, type stuff. My grandmother (Mom's side) attempted to nurse, but didn't have "good milk" (probably didn't--she smoked at the time and worked many hours at a family grocery), and they were fed cow's milk (fresh/raw I think) after a few weeks. My Dad's Mom bottle fed her older kids, but nursed my Dad. Everyone in my family is very supportive of me nursing, even at almost 4yo. Shortly before he died, my Grandaddy told me he thought I should nurse "as long as Jimmy was willing and I was able", and if there were any doubts, that settled it for the rest of my family. My Grandaddy was very much the patriarch of our family.
