I weaned at 10 months (Mom was 3-4 months pregnant with my next sibling), so my memories are of Mom bfing my siblings. If I had weaned when the rest of my siblings weaned (usually between 15-18 months, unwitting MLW) - I would remember it, as I have several clear memories from during that timeframe.
Ina remembers it and has mentioned it several times. She weaned at about 2 1/2 (gentle MLW for the last two months) - she has described nursing to me (in the dark, in the bedroom, snuggled up) - and remembers which breast was her favorite (she's sure it's SJ's favorite too, and I think she's right
). She has good memories of it. And I'm so glad, because the reason she was MLW instead of CLW was because I had a horrible, angry reaction whenever she'd latch on once I got pregnant with SJ. And I was so worried she'd remember that, instead of all the wonderful nursing times we'd had.
I do think that the more people who remember nursing, the less "weird" it can seem to people. When your coworker tells you, "Oh, yes, I remember nursing, it was just the most comfortable safe feeling I've ever had," -- it doesn't sound so weird (I hope) to people who are wrapped up in the sexualization of breasts and uncomfortable with "extended" breastfeeding.
