I never thought this would happen, but a lot of the women in my mom's group are talking about weaning, and all our babies are only 10 months old!! Some have already started to wean their babies (and some are done).
I know I've still got a long way to go, but CLW is really starting to resonate with me. I just spent some time reading a whole bunch of threads on this forum, and I see that it's full of huge challenges and rewards. I don't know that I'll really be able to go as long as DD wants...

Personally, I would say something. You don't have to be rude and maybe you will enable another person to say, "You know, this doesn't feel right?"
You can always just ask, "Oh, why did you decide to do that?" and then discuss their thought process. If they say something like, "babies are suppsoed to be weaned by 12 months," you can always respond, "Oh, it's actually not BEFORE 12 months and the AAP says at least two years is great!" or something like that. A lot of people think that because formula can be done with at 12 months, breastfeeding SHOULD be done with.
