Re: Whos nursing a toddler(s)?

I am, too. Jonah just turned 14 months old and still loves to nurse. He nurses in the morning, before nap or naps (transition from 2 to 1), before bed, and often one time at night. He's been nursing a lot more lately because he's teething again. Even my DH (who isn't an extended nursing advocate) said he's glad that I've continued nursing Jonah through this teething phase because he's not eating much else right now.

Jonah is sometimes a little joker when he nurses. He'll stop and giggle, then I start to laugh, he giggles some more...it's SO fun. As a toddler, nursing has become a time of comfort and a time to "visit" with mom. He's such a joy...

If anyone ever would have told me that I'd nurse my babies, much less a toddler, I wouldn't believe them. Now I can't imagine it any other way.

On a side note, I tried to cut out one feeding a day but it was a no go right now. I might try again in a few weeks when he'll most likely be done cutting these couple of teeth.

Re: Whos nursing a toddler(s)?

I nursed my dd until she was 4 so I don't really consider nursing my 14 mo extended nursing -- my own personal standards though 'cuz in my old neighborhood most kids nursed until they were at least 2yo.

Re: Whos nursing a toddler(s)?

i am nursing 2- they will be 2 next month. i wish i could get jonas to ease up some. he is a *maniac* when it comes to nee-nees. i mean, does a kid really need to nurse 3 times in 10 mins???

i am glad they are still nursing though. i imagine they (jonas especially) will go continue for quite some time.

Re: Whos nursing a toddler(s)?

I'm nursing a 37 month old- and I'm 8 months pregnant.

He's still going strong too- several times through out the day and even a few times at night. (We are currently working on him sleeping in his own bed, but it's right next to our bed so it makes it easy to climb in with us.

Luckily I haven't suffered any discomfort from nursing while pregnant!

Hopefully he weans before he goes off to college!

Melodee will be 2 in December, and she occasionally still nurses. We go some days where she doesnt at all..but if she is sick, sad or just having a hard fussy day then she will.
