only you can, don't your breast belong to you. How does he breast feed, if you're not giving it to him.
Six weeks is the minimum recommended time - you've past that and given him a good start. A year is better than six months but if you're ready to stop, then YES. He'll be perfectly fine. There are lots of ways to go about it, you have to find out what works best for the two of you. Be prepared for him not to be too excited though :-)
experts say that babies are advised to be fed with breastmilk until 2 yrs. it's up to you though, as you can now mix-feed him with commercially prepared milk too.

We have all heard of attachment parenting and co-sleeping etc. But is it too much to be breast feeding your almost 4 year old son??? In my former profession as an RECE I have met many women who have done this and I have seen the results of this process, not always so positive especially in later...

Would you feel embarrassed breast-feeding your child in a public place?

Breast feeding in public bans?What do you think about breast feeding bans? I think mothers should cover themselves, but not be banned or forced to go to restrooms (gross-would you want to eat sitting on a public toilet?)
