I'm working on an article about breastfeeding across the globe. Since Hubpages has an eclectic mixture of cultures, I'm wanting to see how long some breastfeed and if it is reflective of their culture.

I completely agree with you. Culture alone is not indicative of length of nursing time, that is merely one of the aspects I will be exploring in my article. I, too, nursed my children because breast is best. Thanks for your comment.
Yes, the culture of both my and my husband's families does not support breastfeeding, but I believe in the benefits and kept going....about 4 years with my daughter (only child).
Or when she decides she's done. Although at this age, they tend to PREFER to continue, as opposed to babies who are less opinionated. (Opinionated toddlers? Nah!)
Brilliant! Congratulations on making it so far!
And yes, I'm trying to give her gentle nudges. She was down to one feed a day for a long time until she got sick and now she's asking more often. But I know she's not really dependent on it anymore, and I've felt done for a while.
