    So many differing opinions!!! I think when your child can walk and talk, s/he needs to have a glass.....I am not a prude by any means, but mothers nursing toddlers in public just puts me off.

    If she's a woman, she probably should have stopped by now.

    Whenever she wants, it's really not my business. Personally, though, it gets a little freaky for me after the time they can walk.

    It depends on the child's development. Generally, I would say that she should stop breast feeding whenever she would stop giving the kid formula, but at least a year, ideally 2-3 years (maybe stop when they are being potty trained). I will say that, by breastfeeding, I simply mean giving the child breast milk; after about 1 or, really, when they start getting teeth, it could be better to use a bottle and breast pump. It's a personal decision, but it's good to go with what is healthiest for the kid.

    It's a private decision, but so many women seem to have a problem when people stare, so be a little discrete and when the kid is old enough to ask for it, they are old enough to understand "wait till we get home".

    My mom stopped when I started teething, but I think that if the kid can ask for it, they are too old.

    i think breast feeding should stop when the child is old enough to drink regular cows milk. But no later than 2

    In most cases this would be an appropriate cut off age. However, if the child is still attached, than weaning should not be forced, else you risk implanting a food fetish, or disorder.

    With male children, around 30 should be about right. Just kidding!

    1-2, it really depends on the mother and the child It is up to them to decide. Not you, me or society.
