What does the term "extended breastfeeding" mean to you and in your family? Is it breastfeeding past the age of 3 months? 6 months? 2 or 5 years?

When my first son was born, I think extended breastfeeding was anything past 3 months!

I remember being surprised when my sister was still breastfeeding my niece at 12 months.

To me, right now, in the U.S., it means anything much past a year.
