Poll: When Should You Wean? How Late Should Breast-Feeding Go?

Time magazine cover photo of boy nearly 4 feeding on his mother has sparked debate and outcry.

Mothers, we hope you got the rest and recognition your deserved Sunday.  Now back to work—deciding whether the latest media-sparked debate is worth your attention. We refer, of course, to extreme breast-feeding, the “attachment parenting” practice pictured on the cover of Time magazine. That’s the one where a boy nearly 4 is standing on a small chair, feeding on his mother’s left breast. Advocates like Dr. Bill Sears say moms should breast-feed as late as age 7. What’s your age of weaning? (And see what in her column Confessions of the Evil Mother Lady on Rancho Bernardo Patch.)
