Re: How long do you nurse your baby before you wean?

I let my kids decide when they want to wean, as much as I can. My first weaned around 4.5 years. My second is still nursing at 2.75 years.

I will say though, that when my first was 12 months, there was NO WAY I would have believed you if you told me she would nurse to 4.5 years! It was not something that I set out to do or expected to happen! I just kept nursing, and each day she was just one day older than she was yesterday...

Re: How long do you nurse your baby before you wean?

My 1st dd weaned at 19 months due to pregnancy. My ds weaned at 2.5. He nursed through a pregnancy and his sister being born. DD is 17 months and I am not sure what is going on. She was nursing and not showing signs of stopping but she won't latch all a sudden.

Thanks, Mamas, it is great to hear all your stories. I think I will continue to nurse for bedtimes and when she wakes up, and just see how long she wants to do it.

My dd is 3.5 and still nursing often. My son is 16 months and still nursing very frequently. He's decided he doesn't like cups!
