My dh occasionally comments that he thinks our 3 yo is getting a bit big to nurse. I tried to show him information such as this.
In the second year (12-23 months), 448 mL of breastmilk provides:
29% of energy requirements
43% of protein requirements
36% of calcium requirements
75% of vitamin A requirements
76% of folate requirements
94% of vitamin B12 requirements
60% of vitamin C requirements

He wasn't interested in reading.
At the end it is mine and our child's nursing relationship.
After nursing our first for 4 years he has gotten used to it.
