I have followed various threads on here about breastfeeding and how to wean, but nothing I have tried so far has been effective. My son is now 2 1/2 and still insists on "booba" at night and when he's tired or upset. I was getting alot of pressure from the inlaws that he should be fully weaned by now (I've pretty much just stopped discussing it), and now my husband is also giving me grief about it. My question to the group is... how old is too old? Should I just stop all breastfeeding cold-turkey, or continue to let my son nurse on demand until ... when?
