Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

Your prof is going to think I'm nuts!

DD is 13 months and still going STRONG! If Daddy goes in to her when she wakes at night, she starts WAILING because all she wants is to nurse!

But, here's the part that will get your prof: my baby nurses, but due to IGT her nursing is either with a supplementer or purely for comfort! So I'm continuing to choose to nurse even though I don't (and never have) make enough milk for it to be nutritionally beneficial for her. The benefits for us are closeness, bonding and my desire to allow her to continue to utilize Momma's natural comfort measures.
