Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

DD is 13.5 and still nursing. I hope to nurse until she weans herself - whenever that may be!

With DS, I had to stop nursing at 8 months for medical reasons. Three years later, it still bothers me.

Call me crazy then, because we are at ALMOST 30 months (DD will be 2.5 on April 2) and I keep thinking we are almost ready to wean, but we aren't there yet... it feels just as natural now as it did when she was a newborn.

Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

I clicked 12-18 cause that's how long DD1 went (14mo). DD2 just turned 1 and still nurses A LOT so I think she'll go longer than DD1. nak!

DD2 is 4 years 3 months old and still nurses every morning. DS2 is 8 months old and still nursing. My plan for him is at least two years. (That was my plan for DD2 also. lol I never thought we would get to 4 years. LOL)

Still rocking at 22 months AND 8 months pregnant It's the longest I've nursed yet! Granted it's only a couple times in a 24 hour period, but that counts in my book
