Re: anyone else BF'ing after age 1 (or planning to)?

I BFed my son over a year. I plan on BFing this new little one for as long as he would like. We practice child-led weaning here.

My son is losing interest in BFing he is 17 months, my brother in law was BFed until he was 5, not sure I could do it that long but I will go for as long as my lil man wants it. But like I said he isn't that interested anymore just once in awhile and for a very short time.

When you're not providing any breastmilk substitutes and they stop asking to nurse, or not nursing when offered. That's it.
