Humans are biologically meant to breastfeed until the first tooth starts to fall out, like most animals.
I don't see anything wrong with extended breastfeeding. Most experts say to breastfeed until at least 2.
This is a very personal and controversial topic... in our country breastfeeding older children seems to be taboo...where in other countries it is quite normal and natural. One thing I always say is that if you are uncomfortable to have an older child at the breast remember you can always pump breast milk for them and it will have the same nutrients!
