Re: Whos nursing a toddler(s)?

Still on demand for Aleah at 14 months and she still night nurses. With her signing milk and using "titty" it helps. She's also started bringing her Boppy pillow to me when she's ready...that started around 2 months ago.

We intend to do CLW at this point and I'm completely willing to tandem nurse if we have another child. Luckily we have some really great support for both CLW and tandem in our midwives.

...but it's an adventure and so misunderstood by others. My dd is on the bigger side and we get a lot of funny looks NIPing. I usually just give them a funny look back...it's not like my boob is hanging out.

NAK
I will nurse/ nursed all my girls until about age 2. It seems like after 18 months or so, they were only interested in staying still for nursing when they were tired.
To the poster who asked about nursing necklaces, they can really help. I get a lot of emails about how well they work as far as giving the baby something to do rather than pull up moms shirt or fiddle with her boob or poke her eye (my DD's favorite)

Re: Whos nursing a toddler(s)?

Miranda is 15 months and mostly only nurses at bed time and once or twice during the night. Personally I would rather she nurse more during the day and sleep all night, lol. I've been implementing the "don't offer, don't refuse" weaning method and she wont ask for it all day. Too busy I guess. But at about 2 o'clock in the morning she acts like a starving 6 month old.

Re: Whos nursing a toddler(s)?

My dd is 28 months and still nursing.

In the last few months, she specifies which side she wants - "want that mommy milk first." And then, after she nurses a little while, she pops her head up and says, "all done with this milk - need that milk."
