It no longer is serving the purpose of assisting to stengthen a child's
immunity.

Naturally speaking, no mammal breast feeds this long.
Oh wait, humans do

Quote:
A survey of 64 "traditional" studies done prior to the 1940s showed a median duration of breastfeeding of about 2.8 years, but with some societies breastfeeding for much shorter, and some for much longer.
