THANK YOU for this, especially for the bit about tantrums. My neighbor is breastfeeding her toddler, who, like all toddlers, is a difficult kid. When he wants to nurse, he shrieks and bangs his (substantial!) head against her sternum. If I'm still breastfeeding when my kid is closing in on two years old (doubtful, since I work outside the home), I can't imagine accepting that sort of behavior and rewarding it with milk! You accept that sort of behavior in an infant because of course he doesn't know any better, but by the time a kid is old enough to say or sign "please," you don't respond to a tantrum with a sweet drink. Keep up the skepticism!!
