Dd3 is 26mos old and not showing any signs of weaning AT ALL. She still nurses quite a bit. Even in public. If I try and persuade her to wait until we get home, I get an all out screaming tantrum in the middle of where ever we are....so, we nurse.

18 months

I'm not toally calling myself a child led weaning advocate just yet because dd is still young, but I have a feeling we're going in that direction. She loves her nursies and I can't picture forcing her to give that up.

wow, 4 nurslings, kirstie? I'm in awe.

I have two nurslings. One will be a year next week. The other will be 4 in two months. I'm still undecided about child led weaning in both cases. I'll figure out if I'm doing CLW once we're there.

My DD is going to be 28 months on the 19th and still nursing. At night. And last night was a good night because she only woke me twice. I think. I suppose CLW is what we are doing only because DD insists on it. Boy I love her so much.:

my dd is 6mo and i hope to CLW but she allready bites so much there will have to be limits when she gets older

it took us a few days to feel confident that we were bf'ing at all but we've never looked back. i am pretty sure we were clw from the start, even before knowing what that was.

DD has just turned two and we are still nursing every hour, although I have noticed that she is going through the night till about 5 in the morning. I wish she she would ease up a bit during the day. I am not really enjoying it at the moment and I feel like a milking cow! I was determined to breastfeed her after two failed attempts, and when nursing became established CLW was the only way to go

My dd is 13, almost 14 months old.

DD2 is 18mo. I never have kept track of how often she nurses, just know it's all the time! I love the toddler phase of nursing, they can really communicate. She now says things like 'yummy in my tummy'. Too cute! No signs of stopping in the near future.

Nursing a 4 year old and a 21 month old. I WOH (as a teacher) so nursing has become their "After-school snack!" My 4 year old asks several times a day, but he's good about waiting if I need him to. My youngest just started saying, "Want side, peeze!" In the cuuuuutest little voice! I'm so glad I found MDC and learned about CLW!

DS is 8 months old and DD is 27 months old and still going strong. I have redirected DD a little -- I counted, and for a while she nursed 20+ times/day! -- and we're down to a more mutually agreeable 4-8x/day. DS is less of a boob hound and very distractible, so I spend more time trying to get him to settle down and nurse. Just goes to show, they're all different.

My DS is 20mo right now and loving the nursing
post #97 of 98
My oldest was 31 months, my next was 34 months, and my current nursling is 13 months and still nurses like a newborn!! and this time I have no clue how long she will go. The others quit when I was about 6-7 months pregnant with the next. I still had milk, they just were done.... But this time there are no more babies coming!

ds is 30 months- we became committed to clw around the 12 month mark
