Hello all! I am wondering how everyone feels about nursing in the second year and beyond. I have two boys (three and seventeen months) and I am still nursing both. I find myself fibbing to family and friends, especially about the oldest. And when I do admit that I am still nursing them, I just say "Well, it works for us!" That usually stops the strange comments, but it still makes me wonder why it is such a big deal! It shocks me sometimes that people are so put off by long-term nursing. Anyone have thoughts?
