What is the obsession with having everything done by one?
From sleeping through, weaning from breastmilk onto another species milk, taking first steps, toilet training.
Most of us have been 17 years old, would we have cared if our mothers breastfed us until we were 3? Hmm probably not. Do you really think we would be concerned about the age of our weaning?
I know I wouldn’t , would you?
We know that the benefits of breastfeeding don’t suddenly end because a child has turned 12 months old, breasts don’t suddenly turn into sex organs when a child has turned 12 months old!
It’s an onlookers perception that changes, not the child’s.
The onlooker finds it uncomfortable to see based on their own prejudices, opinions, education and experiences then projects it onto the mother with comments like this.
Sorry you received this comment Mama, breastfeeding is hard enough without comments like this.
