Christa recently did a very sweet post about how she is still breastfeeding her two-year-old, and how she will follow her child’s lead when it’s time to wean. I’m a big fan of both extended breastfeeding and child-led weaning, which naturally go hand in hand. I nursed my older daughter, Mackenzie, until she was 22 months old, when my second child, Aurelia, was born. If it weren’t for the problems I had with Aurelia’s latch, which made round-the-clock nursing pretty painful in the first week or so, I would have let Mackenzie keep going with it until she decided to wean herself. Mackenzie is now 2 years and 8 months old, and for all I know, she would still be nursing today along with the baby, who is now close to a year old.
