I am bfding my 16 month old ds and I got a lots of comments from my colleagues and accidental people.
The most important thing - your feeling about what you are doing.
Sometimes I tired to explain, then I can say smth like: "Thank you, we can decide what is really good for us", sometimes to some people I try to explain all I know about bfd benefits, sometimes I just saying:" I'd like to be on my son place", it's make them look or :

Just be sure - you are doing the best for your babies!

Congratulations to you for dedicating yourself to extended bf! I have been so passionate and verbal that those around me now know that my dd (22 months) is still nursing will no plans to stop. However, you do not owe explanations to anyone. A simple "yes, we are still nursing" is enough. If you want to explain more, tell the rude person asking you this question that you would be glad to send them some literature on extended BF so they could educate themselves about the benefits. That usually shuts them up. Be proud of doing what is right for you and your babes.

I was in the Atlanta airport around last christmas on the way to my mom's. I had taken my daughter who had just turned two to the bathroom to change her from her jammies during our lay over. She was a bit upset, so I decided to nurse her to calm her down. While we were nursing, an employee stopped and said "aww, how old is she, 1?" I said, "she just turned 2." Suddenly the woman's bright smile turned into a disapproving frown accompanied by the comment "2?!" She promptly left without another word. whatever!~ A few minutes later, my daughter was dressed and calm. We had a very pleasant wait for our connection. People can be such DOLTS!

Just do what you know is right.
