Two questions for any of you who have breastfed or are currently doing so:
- What is the oldest you've nursed your baby and what is the age at which it is just plain wrong to keep doing it? I'm still nursing my 14-month old son and he loves it. The problem right now is that I have a hard time getting liquid into him other ways. He plays with sippy cups and ends up getting more on his front than down his throat. He nurses to get comfort and go to sleep. And he's just kind of a boob man like his dad. I think he needs to be better with sippy cups before I can wean him off breast milk. Is there anything wrong with nursing a toddler?
- Do you think men should be able to have the nursing experience too? Some people claim that a man can produce milk, too -- or they can just use a Daddy Nurser.
