My daughter is the oldest nursling I know, or have ever heard of in real life. My friend nursed her daughter until 20 months, and then weaned her because of pressure from family and other friends.
She is the second oldest I know. My dd will be 5 in August, and she says she will NEVER stop nursing!
I kind of believe her.
I need to come to this forum more often. It settles me... sometimes she makes me feel touched out, and I tell her "not right now". But her 18-month-old brother can come over and nurse right then, and I am fine with him! *Why is it like that?* I cannot imagine weaning her though. She would be devastated.
I am very impressed by you mamas who are really going the distance for your children. I need that inspiration, because if I know my girl, she may be nursing at 10, too.
