I think nursing a child that old is kinda creepy. I started developing my own breasts at age 7 and I can't imagine how awkward that would have been for me and my mother. I have to agree that if a kid is old enough to prepare their own food be it peanut butter and jelly or cereal or whatever then they should probably NOT be nursing any more.

With my youngest I nursed until she was just over 1 yearby that time I had enough. She was running around, and wasn't that interested any longer. I guess it depends on where you live, and the conditions surronding you. But I don't think I could do it.

I dont think I would do it for that long. But yes in other countries they do it for health reasons. In some coutries they have no baby food or formula. And the ones that do have formula do not clean water to mix it with. Not only that bottles and sterilization can be an issue. Me personally I think I will wean by age 2 at least.
