Neither of my kids are still nursing right now (and #3 isn't due till August) but we decided on child led weaning long before we were even pregnant with #1.

My nurslings are 51 and almost 31 months. The oldest one nurses maybe 6-7 times a week for less than a minute or so. He's nursed that much for close to a year now. Yesterday I was thinking it had been a few days since he had nursed and maybe he was done and then he latched on when we were cuddling. The younger one still nurses a lot.

DD is 18 months. I'm going to nurse at least til 24 months, and play it by ear after that. I like the concept of CLW, but I'm reserving judgement on whether that's what I"m going to do.

She'll be 2 in April. We're planning on CLW. I actively encourage (offer frequently) nursing now and will until she's at least 2. She's a thin one, and seems to only eat fruit, so she needs the mama milk (esp b/c it's tough to get any other sorts of fat into her - brain development and all of that )

I love our nursing relationship, and she'll probably be my last - so I'm in no hurry for it to end.

My nursling is 20 months and I am committed to CLW. I hope to make it until he is at least 5, as I was unable to nurse my first son due to a cleft and would like the benefits that nursing gives to me.

DD is 2.5 years

My big one turned four in December and my little one will be one at the end of the month. Unfortunately, I didn't realize it was a multiple-choice poll until I had already voted for just "4-5 years." Oh, well! Anyway, I have kids who looooooove the boobie.

I've got a 2 1/2 year old nursling and a 19 month old nursling.

In two days my little boob-head will be 10 months.

CLW sounds great in theory, and I plan on going until Ryo's at least 2, but as a pp said I reserve the right to revise my stance as time goes on.

My son is 21.5 months and nurses once or twice during the day and all freaking night long. My daughter weaned sometime in the month following her third birthday, so we tandem nursed for just under a year.

dd is 15 months. want to nurse as long as we both can do it! not nursing at night as much anymore but she is still totally into it.
post #59 of 98
Dd is 2y10m. She has definately slowed down with nursing a bit but always nurses to sleep and throughout the night. We have some high frequency nursing days and some lower. I have also had to start setting some minor limits (for example, you need to go pee before we nurse as she dances around with her legs crossed). I am still very committed to CLW and I can see so many benefits of our BF relationship both health related and emotionally.

I have a 2.5 month old and a nearly 2.5 year old

I thought my oldest was weaning when I was pregnant. She went down to just once a week or so.
But dontcha know- as soon as that milk came back in she was right back up to several times a day!
