"If your baby is old enough to ask for it, he's too old to breastfeed," have never watched my six month old son, Max. Once you see him sucking on my arm, neck, chin or nose hard enough to give me a major hicky, headbutt himself into my chest, pull down my shirt, or start arching his back in a desparate attempt to get into "nursing position," there's no doubt that he's asking to nurse. And at six months old, no one is going to tell me he's too old to be nursing. And you know what? Even if he was 18 months, 2 years or older, and could clearly articulate verbally what he wanted, he still wouldn't need it any less than my six month old.
