I don't think she was suggesting that it wasn't beneficial to nurse a 4-year-old; she was just saying that the "goal" or "dream" or whatever of nursing a 4-year-old is *her* "goal" or whatever, not her child's. In other words, the child may nurse until he/she is 4, 5, 6, whatever, and that may be what is best for him or her. On the other hand, the child may wean sooner (or his or her own accord) and, in that case, *that* would be the best experience for that child (since it would still be child-led). Make sense?

Or maybe *I* misinterpreted her comment--but that's how I took it.

My DD will be three in January and I am almost 26 weeks pregnant. I have not lost my milk and she still nurses (mainly at night. I don't know how to get a baby to sleep without nursing! LOL!!). I had your same fears but so far it has been great. I plan on tandem nursing and can't wait!
