How many years plus months have you been nursing straight through? : )

post #1 of 149
Thread Starter 
I thought this would be fun (spin-off idea from another thread).
For those of us who have done CLW, who have nursed consecutive children straight through, or tandem-nursed....
How many consecutives years plus months have you been breastfeeding?

I've done 8 yrs, 2 months straight now

We're at 3 years, 5months. Tandom for 8months.

Nothing like 8, but we're getting there

Only 1 kid, 4 years and 2 months so far.

I have a cousin who has been nursing something like 10 years straight (spread among 4 kids I think - it's a second cousin and I've only met her maybe twice in my life, lol).

My youngest just weaned due to colostrum (she says it's icky ) but I had nursed for 3 years, 6.5 months when she weaned, and of course I'll be picking back up as soon as this baby is born (and hopefully DD will unwean too )

LOL
My first asked for "NURSIES!" so I thought I'd be a little more subtle this time and teach the 2nd to just ask for "MILK". I figured any kid can ask for milk in public and no one bats an eye, right?
Well, my youngest has outwitted me. He asks for milk alright...."MAMA'S MILK!" In a very loud, demanding voice I might add

I agree that you ladies are all AMAZING! I have a special brand of respect for the tandem nurses....that I only did for a very short time because the oldest stopped. I cannot imagine nursing two at the same time.

Holy cow mamas!!! Awesome!

I only have one child, but we've been going strong for 2 years, 6 months. We'll keep going until he's ready to quit. It gets funnier as he gets older- right now he calls it his "tummy yummies".

 

Edited/updated:  As of April 2011, it'll be 3y 11mos for us!  Wow.

 

Edited again!  Here we are in August 2011 and we're still going strong.  4 years 3 months.  That includes nursing through a pregnancy and miscarriage, 150 pounds of weight loss, training for a marathon, and so, so much more!

4 years, 3 months, 17 of those tandem.
Thanks so much for this thread! Often I can't find info that I have company in nursing even beyond 2 years old.
