Don't agree that it is 'normal' to continue and keep
Talloola, ‘normal’ is relative, what is normal to you may not be normal to me. At one time, being black was not considered to be normal, woman working outside the home was not considered normal (at least in the middle class). Even today, many people think that homosexuality is not normal; it is an abomination against God.
So I don’t think ‘normal’ should be the criteria when deciding if something is beneficial or harmful.
Apparently the average age of weaning worldwide is 4 years. Admittedly many of those people dont have much choice i guess but it goes to show that the US and canada and the Uk and so on are once again thinking they're the normal ones when they just arent. My little one is 16 months and shows no signs of stopping. She says "boob" or "swig" if she wants some.
