I have read stories or hear other mums say that they support extended breastfeeding, but they would never keep breastfeeding a child that was three, or four, or five, and so on. I have seen videos and read stories of women who still breastfed when their child was seven or eight, and the response to some of these articles can be quite rude. I also read a story recently where a mum started breastfeeding her five year old in front of her partner's family, and the family members were disgusted and offended. It made me wonder how many mums do feel that there is a certain age when breastfeeding should stop.

In your opinion, how long is too long? If you were still breastfeeding a child that was older, do you think it would still be OK to do it in public or in front of family?
