I am taking a first aid/cpr class today. I told the teacher that I may be so tired I forget how to count, so apologies in advance. She asked why, I told her I was working on getting my daughter to sleep in a crib. Then she started talking about breastfeeding and said, "You know on the internet there is a girl who BF until she was 8??? Some people are just too much. My aunt BF until her son was 2, and he could just reach up and pull it out himself. That's just too much, I think."
I was so stunned I didn't even know what to say. I mean, I know people think that... but this teacher knows I'm still BFing, and heard me comment about how mobile Emmy is. She has NO FLIPPING CLUE how old my child is, so for all she knows I am BFing a 2 year old. I felt so uncomfortable, since I am not against nursing until Emmy is 2. I must have been in my bubble for too long, because I actually thought two was a fairly normal age for weaning... I mean, longer than most people go, but it hadn't crossed over into the "that's completely gross" category for most of society.
