please don't take me as being rude, i'm really just curious! please explain to me why some mothers continue to bf well past a year into 2 or 3yrs. i just don't understand. how can you be comfortable with breastfeeding a child who is old enough to either ask for the breast or go ahead and lift your shirt to attempt a latch all on their own? you stop passing the immune support at 6mo and at the 12m mark they can have cow's milk and regular table food. so why continue?
like i said i'm not trying to be rude or hurtful, i'm only trying to educate myself. i currently am bf my 6mo along with feeding solids and formula. i plan to bf until my baby is either walking or 1yo...which ever comes first.
