Breastfeeding a 3 yr. old should I stop?

I heard that breastfeeding is good for toddlers even after two years of age. My daughter is almost 3 now and her dentist wants me to stop breastfeeding her specially at night after she brushed her teeth (she only nurses at night). Dentist said that her teeth are in good condition but not for long if I don't... show more I heard that breastfeeding is good for toddlers even after two years of age. My daughter is almost 3 now and her dentist wants me to stop breastfeeding her specially at night after she brushed her teeth (she only nurses at night). Dentist said that her teeth are in good condition but not for long if I don't stop bf her. I tried to stop a couple of times but it breaks my heart to see her so sad and it also makes me sad. Does the benefit of breast feeding out weighs the risk? I read that it increases the childs IQ and also lessens her chance of being over weight as an adult. How long can I carry on without risking her getting a tooth decay?
