[QUOTE=*~Danielle~*]She said, "I just don't want him to be 5 years old and trying to breastfeed. I mean, I just don't want him to be going to school and breastfeeding!"

I couldn't help myself, but I said, "Well, we are going to be homeschooling, so that won't be an issue."

I mean, why is it so taboo to nurse your children past 6 months old.

Oh I could write a NOVEL!!!!!

I told my MIL "I have yet to meet a kindergartener who was still nursing". Okay, that was after ds2. After the third I said he wouldn't be nursing when he got his diploma!!!

Most people I came in contact with consider it taboo to nurse past teeth. Whatever! And if they are old enough to ASK for it . . . well, that is just SICK!!! :LOL

The more the asked, the more determination I had to keep on nursing!

Most of you would probably consider me pretty "mainstream". : One of the "badges" I wear with honor is nursing longer than anyone I know IRL! My youngest did not wean COMPLETELY until he was four!!!!
