Talking We're officially extended BFing!!!

Salem turned 1 on May 5th. He is still nursing about 6x per day and 4x per night.
My other two weaned at 1, so this is a first for me.

I really need better sleep, so I hope to eliminate the night nursing soon. We'll see how that goes. That is a whole 'nother topic!

I finally figured out what food Salem will eat! He likes soft chunks of food that he can self feed. He also seems to need/want variety. He'll hardly touch "leftovers." Oh, and he likes breads and baked goods.

I believe Salem is dairy intolerant (the kind they outgrow) so I am thinking about making it a goal to nurse until 24 months. I'm a little nervous, though. Maybe I should make the goal 18 months first.

congrats to making it to 1 year. Mine is 18 months, and nurses a few times a week still. Luckily no more nights!

Congrats!!!

We make our one year mark tomorrow! Were still night nursing also, but we co-sleep so its no biggie for me. DS#1 self weaned at just over 18 months starting with him dropping his night time nursings around this age. I'm hoping this guy stays interested for longer

Re: We're officially extended BFing!!!

congrats! I made it 13 months and then I had an infection with which I couldn't nurse (the antibiotics they put me on I wasn't allowed to and they said the bacteria could transfer to her) and she actually gave it up within one day of not being able to nurse.....so...yeah...hopefully now that the cause of the infection is gone I'll never have that again and can go longer with my next. ^_^ Yeah for over a year breastfeeders!
