Respondentmom posted here awhile back and I know for a fact that he weaned right before his 8 th birthday. They visited us for his birthday last year and he was done nursing at that time.<br><br>
I just heard from her and she is coming to visit in 2 weeks!

Reading the LLL article (TY, Momtwice) reminded me, has anyone seen the movie "Smilla's Sense of Snow?". In it, a Greenlander mom nurses her 8- or 9- year old daughter for a minute. It's so tender & beautiful! OK movie, otherwise (stars Julia Ormond).
I saw on Dr. Phil a woman who was nursing an 8 year old. She wanted Dr. Phil's opinion on it, what a silly woman. Anyways he basically told her it was all for her and it was just because she didn't know how to set limits. She subsequently weaned the girl. This situation made me feel sad. I personally don't think I want to nurse past 5-6 but I don't think a person should be made to feel bad for doing so. They actually showed video footage of the little girl nursing and it was beautiful, not weird or disgusting at all.
