Happy Birthday to my sweet C! Three years ago I would have never imagined I would be nursing a three year old, but here we are. I'm so grateful for the information and knowledge I've received that led to our choices. My DS will nurse as long as he likes but I cannot help but think that this *could* be our last year, our last hoorah. I'm going to take the extra time to enjoy these sweet moments.

Re: My nursling is 3!

Wow way to go! My nursling is only 16 months and is now nursing only 2x daily. I wish I could go that long, but I would have so many obstacles (mostly in the form of people's comments, and I just care too much what ppl say unfortunately). Good for you though!

Re: My nursling is 3!

Way to go mama! I nursed my first until a couple of months before her 3rd bday when she self weaned. Never understood the extended nursing until I had one of my own

Re: My nursling is 3!

Congratulations! My older nursling just turned 4 and still loves to nurse a couple of times a day. You never know how long they'll go!

That's wonderful. But don't scare me. I hope we have another year or so left.

Totally hope that's us too! He's still going pretty strong at 6ish times a day. Awesome job yourself.

Yay!! We're close. How often is your DS nursing now? I like hearing about others nursing relationships.
