Audrey is now 2 years and 3 months old. I still breastfeed.
I do because it's what feels right, it's our time together, when we are both at peace, together.
Sometimes I don't think very much milk at all comes out. Other times I feel so fortunate I can offer my daughter this great drink.
Some days, I really don't feel like it, I wish I didn't have her pulling on my shirt or TELLING me how she HAS TO HAVE IT...NOW.

Breastfeeding a toddler gets lot's of attention sometimes.
"when are you going to stop?", "what about your husband?", "what about your breasts?", "you must be doing it for birth control?"
"don't you think she's a little too old for it?"
Sometimes these comments make me MAD, sometimes I worry what others might think.
This passes, because people will always have comments...no matter what. I am doing what's best for our family.
I also have found that a smart reply helps too....
"I do what's best for our family, what feels natural to us, and not what others tell us to do".
