Re: anyone else BF'ing after age 1 (or planning to)?

dd self weaned at 13 mo- so i thought- but then a month later came looking to nurse but i was dry. it never occurred to me to keep offering during that month. i had mixed feelings because i loved nursing but was getting a little tired of dd's acrobatics while at the breast.

ds is 5 mo and i plan to let him nurse til he's truly ready to wean. however i am not a mama who can fathom nursing a 3 or 4 yo so hopefully we'll be on the same page and be done by age 2.

anyway...i nursing my nurslings!

Re: anyone else BF'ing after age 1 (or planning to)?

I let my DD lead...at one we were bf'd 4 times a day, but she was begining to fight me on most of them. We quickly were down to just the morning bf at about 13 months, then i got bitten on the morning one, and I said that is it. If she was not bitting me we might have lasted a bit longer, but I just could not take it.

Re: anyone else BF'ing after age 1 (or planning to)?

I'm planning to go past 1 year (would definitely like to nurse my DS through the second winter to help boost his immune system), but I don't know how it's going to work out since I'll be back at work/school...I can't wait to hear my family's reaction to that though...they'll definitely make a few "helpful" comments

Re: anyone else BF'ing after age 1 (or planning to)?

My daughter is going on 20 months and still BFing. For her, there was no way she was going to stop at 1 year. I'll just wait to see when she wants to cut down or stop. I'm guessing it'll be around 2 years.

Sometimes I get tired of it and wish it was over, but we're only having one child, so I'll probably be sad when it ends. Right now, I can't see the future of when she'll stop, so all I know now is that she's still BFing. She'll stop when she wants to, though.

Mine is almost 15 months and just starting to skip her nursing before her naps I think I'm going to miss nursing her. Although she has started biting, so I won't miss that!

I'm just planning on letting her do it at her pace!
