My soon-to-be 28 months old girl

My girl is almost 28 months old now and still a breastfed baby, not exclusively though. She takes once or twice growing up milk per day, other times she likes being a leech, latching on me whenever she sees me in lying position or sitting position. Her overly demand of sucking has been causing a lot of inconveniences for me, i feel exhausted but i still have no heart to wean her off my boobs. I like the quiet time bonding with her and such moment is precious when she comfortably being held in nursing position. In fact, i have received quite lot of pressures from people especially my hubs, they just want me to stop. Some of them think perhaps i do not produce enough milk for my girl, and some of them say my milk now is actually nutrient-less, so better i wean her off. I am so in dilemma, stop or continue has been lingering on my mind for a while.

People will throw me a "wow and unbelievable" look when they are told i am still breastfeeding my toddler girl. Is it really such an unbelievable act when a mother is still breastfeeding her toddler girl? I have a friend actually breastfed her boy till her boy was 4 years old. Well, i don't think i am able to nurse my girl like how my friend did. I am getting prepared to wean her off my boobs because she will attend nursery in another few months time. Time just flies, my ever fragile baby is now a cute little girl, and very soon, she will go to primary school, then high school, then Uni, and then go dating with boyfriend. And very soon, she will hunt for her custom engagement ring, don't you agree that all these will just happen in the blink of an eye?
