Thumbs up Who has breastfed for the most months?

I was adding up my totals:

DS1 15 months
DS2 15 months
DS3 37 months
DS4 21 months
DD 18 months and still nursing!
106 months or almost 9 years!!!
My oldest will be 12 in February!

I weaned DS2 because at the time I was under the mistaken impression that I had to wean him to get pg- my 3 other boys self weaned. I tandem nursed DS3 & 4 for 7 months. DS4 weaned when I was 4 months pg with DD.
Actually I'm shocked that DD is still nursing- I had a terrible time with her biting starting at 11 months and it took months to work through and she is so distracted now that I have to nurse her 3 times a day in my quiet dark bedroom- I'm hoping she will continue through the spring to benefit from my antibodies during cold/flu season.
