Re: 16 months and still p/t bf but getting grief :(

Many parents don't consider breastfeeding until 2 to be "extended" breastfeeding. It's just breastfeeding. Americans have the lowest age for weaning in the world, I believe, and this mentality (that it's bad) is partly why.

I think you need to talk to your husband because even if he disagrees, he's handling it wrong, but there is nothing wrong and there are so many benefits to nursing your son right now. He's still a baby. My rule of thumb, and what I tell people who are nay sayers (when I bother to reply) is that if a baby would still be on formula, they'll be getting breastmilk. Why am I going to pay out money for something I get for free?
