Great job mama!! DD is 18 months and I still nurse in public. She is a grazer when we're at home too, but actually does better when we're out. If she just seems to be playing or is determined to expose my boobs to everyone in a ten foot radius, we stop and do something else.

Eta: And I haven't noticed any weird looks, but i am also kind of oblivious. DD is pretty small though and based on size, could pass for much younger.

Thank you, mamas, for all of your inputs! LOL I don't know if my lo would expose me or not but I'm pretty sure she would. She always wants to watch everything going on while she's nursing and them make her comments on it too! I may give NIP a shot because I really do hate telling her she can't nurse when we are out. Especially if its been a long day of running around. I didn't mind NIP when she was younger. Guess its just harder for me the older she gets, especially with all of the negative publicity that extended breast feeding has been getting lately.

Re: Nursing over 14 months!!!

I only did in public until 18 months. In front of people I knew I did until she stopped nursing at 26 months, my not doing it in public was mostly because she would not leave my body unexposed. I see nothing wrong with publicly nursing an older child, mine would just bare both breasts, my stomach, everything because she was a fiddler, for me it really had nothing to do with the breastfeeding part.

Re: Nursing over 14 months!!!

My DS is almost 14 months and we still nip. He is also a grazer and very distractable. He leaves me exposed sometimes, but I find that you really can't see much. Usually he is satisfied after a couple of minutes anyways because he has moved on to something more interesting. I've also never had a stranger say anything, I find that my friends are the ones with the obnoxious comments.

Re: Nursing over 14 months!!!

I nursed my first until 18 months (nip). I'm not sure how long I'll go with our second. Great insight on this post.

Oh and... It's your kid and your boobs. That would be my reply to anyone who dare questions.

Re: Nursing over 14 months!!!

We just hit the 17 month mark and I nurse her in public. I've never heard any comments. The only place I don't nurse is in church.
