Dear Poll: How Old Is Too Old to Breastfeed?

Breastfeeding is a personal decision. Some women swear by it, while other mothers prefer to bottle feed their babies. While there are many health benefits to breastfeeding, it's not right for everyone.

With that said, have you ever witnessed a mother breastfeeding a child who seemed a little too old to still be on the boob? I have, and I have to admit it was pretty uncomfortable. It's recommended that babies be breastfed for up to a year, though some mothers breastfeed for longer. But ladies, what I want to know is: How old is too old to breastfeed?
