Re: How long did you...or do you plan to bf?

DD is 32.5 months.. sill nursing 1 time per day, though she occasionally asks for more, she will wait for bedtime.. i'd like her to wean on her own, whenever she is willing, if she is not willing i'd like to wean her before she turns 5 .. i'm all for CLW but i've got a limit..

DS is nearly 7 months and still EBF, i don't want him to wean before he is 2 & will apply the same 5th birthday rule if necessary ..

Unfortunately Corbin wasn't breastfed, but Reid more than made for that, he nursed until 35 months. Faith is 18 months and still going at it!

DS1 was only til 4 months, DS2 is 15 months and still nurses like 20 times a day. I plan on CLWing, so who knows when he'll stop, right now it's his fave place to be. After he weans, I still plan on pumping

Re: How long did you...or do you plan to bf?

DS1 weaned right around 2 yr.
DS2 is 21 mos and still nursing a couple times a day, mainly for naps and sleep. But more than DS1 was at this age.

My first is still nursing at 32 months. (I planned on nursing her for a year, tops, because any longer than that was just gross! )
My second is 10 months old and still going strong. In a million years, I never would have thought I'd tandem nurse but it's wonderful, although exhausting. It's really sweet to watch them hold hands or touch each others faces while nursing. I guess nowadays I feel that they know what they need better than I do and I don't want to take something from them that important too early.

Re: How long did you...or do you plan to bf?

DS self-weaned at 32 months, and I'll let DD self-wean as well. I'm hoping she'll go longer than DS did... I felt like he was still a baby when he weaned!

It really depends on whether or not I'm pregnant... I just can't handle BFing while pregnant and always wean. But, I don't plan on having a 4th any time soon, so we'll see at 2.

I'm hoping for 18 months, anything after that is a bonus
