Breastfeeding 2 year old: is it strange?

Message length 300 characters recommended

In developed countries like the US where we always have food just a grocery story trip away this isn't as necessary. Our kids have access to the food they need every day. Of course, this doesn't mean they CAN'T nurse past 2 years old. Toddlers are still built to nurse because that's how we evolved. It just depends on what you want to do. We're lucky that way to have a choice :)


I continue breastfeeding for almost 4 year... While I was 6 month pregnant, Zion self weaned when he was 2 1/2 year old . Then went back at it right after Kaden was born.


The choice on how long you breastfeed is totally up to you. My best friends daughter is 2 years old and she is still breastfeeding.

My oldest was 6 months old and my youngest was 8 1/2 months when they stopped and they did it on their own.
