My seventh baby is now 20 months old. So far, she's gone the longest out of all her siblings as far as still breastfeeding. The rest of them quit by about 18 months at the longest. I leave it up to them when they want to quit, but I always HOPE they're gonna keep going longer... as is the case right now... This little girl is losing interest in breastfeeding. She feeds first thing when she wakes up, usually around 7:30 or 8:00 am, and only goes maybe three or four minutes a side, max, lately.
We lay down together for another feed before nap time around noonish. She takes maybe one or two minutes a side, but sometimes not even a taste.
Then again at bedtime in the evening, we lay down together for some milkies. Again, barely a minute or two per side.
I'm wondering if it's more ME wanting her to keep going, or is there benefit for her in the little bit of milk she's getting right now.
