|So, I'm beginning to wonder things like where in the world do they nurse 5 year olds? 6 year olds? Older than that even? I'm starting to question it, but yet I would feel uncomfortable setting an end to it before my Dd decides for herself. Again, when we nurse, it all feels fine. My Dh seems to think it's normal, although we've never talked about it one way or the other.|

|I mean, I don't think it's damaging to my daughter that she continues to nurse, and I wonder if forcing her to wean could be harmful. So, we just keep on keeping on.|

|That way I could see an end to this. But, well, my sister sucked her thumb until she was 11 years old. Is my Dd going to want to nurse that long? See, I don't think I'm okay with that.|
