If breastfeeding is effect a marriage - there are more issues then just the breastfeeding... just my opinion and experience.

At 3... sure - why not pump and give in a cup. Children shouldnt be using bottles after their first birthday, because of teeth development. My son (who is still nursing and will be 10 months old this month) is already using a sippy cup. No sense to wean from breast to bottle and bottle to cup.

One could also argue that if Mommy is is still breastfeeding at age 3 that there are more issues than just breastfeeding in a marriage.

Reasonableness applies to everything. 1 yr seems reasonable. 3 yrs seems outrageous. 5 yrs a sex crime.

Or why not just ask your pediatrician what they recommend instead of some pro-breastfeeding blog website?

Ask the true experts, not just a consensus of other breastfeeding moms?

I might add a balance of the two viewpoints would be best. I've heard doctors suggest 2 weeks of breastfeeding and that's isn't to me the point of when a baby doesn't need milk.
The upper limit should be 3 years or less in my opinion, and a lot of the moms stop when the baby is growing teeth in.

From my own experience with my son, I wouldn't have felt comfortable doing it past 1 1/2 years old. He was a very intelligient infant and still a very intelligent toddler. But, I do know of people who's children are the same age as my sone, almost 2 years old now, and are still breastfeeding. I think it has a lot to do with the comfort of the mother. Otherwise, I think past the age of 3 is a little "different". Hopefully I didn't offend anyone, just my thoughts.

I know that after two weeks of breastfeeding, my husband was very jealous and asked me to start pumping too so that he could feed the boy.

I would say that the info i posted - from the world health organization (which says up to age 2 and beyond) would be unbiased - unlike if i had posted from La Leche League (which from my experience advocated child-led weaning).

I have no personal need to know what a peditrician says on the topic. My youngest is four yrs old and stopped nuring at 8 months. I was just curious what others thought on the subject of exended breastfeeding at ages 5 and up.
