The Nursing Mothers Guide to Weaning by Shiela Kitzinger can answer question on weaning at any age.
My first was weaned at 14 months, my second shortly after she was two. My ex-husband led that weaning.
My third is 10 months and I plan to wean him before he goes to college ;) Otherwise he can wean or nurse whenever he chooses. I work full time, have returned to work after six weeks for each child. Breastfeeding/Pumping really helps keep me sane. It is nice to know he is well fed even while I work. Daddy stays home with the baby. Breastfeeding is the easy choice.
My first had an occasional bottle of formula before I knew better. The ex would give her a bottle of that crap to 'give me a break'. The result was always a fussy, messy baby, and no break. For the second and third, I just didn't have any formula in the house, because it is crap.
