Hello, my name is Shawna, and I am nursing my toddler. (This is your cue to say "Hello, Shawna")
Even in the United States where breastfeeding rates are significantly higher than in the UK, it is still considered strange and unusual to breastfeed past 12 months. Sadly, a lot of babies are weaned once solids are introduced or teeth start popping up. Neither of these things should signal the end of your breastfeeding relationship though. In fact, breastfeeding can be the best soother for transitional times in your baby's life such as new foods and painful teeth.
