I came across a truly fascinating presentation, it takes a few minutes to view the entire site. Information covers the weaning ages of children all over the world throughout history, really and truly interesting data:

That was a great read, thank you! Lately my 3-year-old has been getting on my nerves while BFing, but this presentation was encouraging.

Wife to dh and mommy to dd1 (3/07), ds (1/10), and dd2 (any day now)!

That was a really hard age to breastfeed! I think it was easier as she got closer to four.

I'm totally sending this to my Dad. He thinks I'm crazy for wanting to breastfeed.

Little side story: My Mom had her first child when she was 18 in 1963. She and her husband were pretty poor and they couldn't afford formula so her doctor taught her how to make her own. She can't remember the specifics, but it was basically powdered milk and corn syrup, I think. Both my brothers were fed this as well. My Mom honestly didn't know any better, though. She didn't even no what sex was until her wedding night - she was horrified. Her mother just couldn't be bothered to parent her. It's amazing to me that my Mom is as amazing and progressive as she is. She's completely supportive of all of my choices. I'm very lucky.
