In-laws, friends, and clerks at Target making you feel like a weirdo for "still" nursing that child who can walk? Screw 'em! You know what's best for your kids and you'll breastfeed them for as long as you damn well want to. I nursed my son almost up to his third birthday and I have no regrets.
Here's some extended breastfeeding celebs to keep you company. OBVIOUSLY you do not need a crew of crunchy celeb moms to validate your choices! But it's still nice to know this is something women of all walks of life do.
Mayim Bialik has been very vocal in support of extended breastfeeding. Here's a post she wrote about why she was still nursing her then 2 1/2-year-old, "I Breastfeed My Toddler, Got a Problem With It?" LOL, love that headline.
