DD was "still" nursing through First Grade; topic never came up.
Next time someone says that, ask them why they think that any child teasing another child is okay. Just who is or has the problem in this hypotheticaly situation? Seems to me that the harasser is and has the problem, not the nursing child.
Ask them why they think the victim has to change when it's the bully/teaser who is creating a problem.
So, no, teasing has never been an issue for us.
I'm an unintentional weasel feeder and I suck at proofreading.
i remember one afternoon, when my oldest got off the bus, he yelled across the yard as i was walking toward him, "mom, can i have ninners now". my neighbor looked over at me and grinned, but she didn't know what he was talking about. the kids on the bus i assume didn't know either, they just waved.
from my experience with nursing and from reading other mom's experience's, the nurslings are usually the ones that make the most well adjusted students!

Janet ~ Wife to Bryon (Ret. USN), Mama to Korbyn(12), Koltyn (7), and Kashlynn (6/23/09) Our long awaited little girl!! ... a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised (proverbs 31:30)
She's a preteen now, (she weaned years ago! )eats plenty, sleeps like a log, and is very independent.
eta: forgot she weaned just before 2nd grade started.

The other kids could tell what my daughter was doing, mostly. One girl started trying to suck on her mom's tummy, then started advocating to be allowed to nurse. It was funny to listen to. (Drink milk mom so you'll have milk. No, it doesn't work that way. You used to drink my milk but it's all gone now...) Any kid who cared clearly thought my daughter had a good thing going.
Children at this age are loving and accepting. The parents may think it's screwy, but the kids just accept each other.
