roughly 4 years, 6 months. Weaning was so gradual I can't say for sure when we stopped.

dc#1 -14 months. Really and truly self-weaned after a 3 days seperation. I tried for weeks to get him to latch on, and he refused. I was heart-broken.

dc#2- 2.5 years. Gradual weaning and I don't honestly remember when the final nursing took place.

dc#3- 29 months and still nursing to sleep, during the night and in the morning and for naps when I am there to put her down for naps.

DS: 2 yrs, 4 months, self weaned
DD: 2 yrs, 6 months, self weaned

i also tandemed them both for 6 months, then pumped and donated for another 6 months after my ds weaned :

i'm hoping this new lil bub (due nov) will go at least as long as his/her sibs. i'm committed to 2 yrs of breastmilk, even if i had to pump and give it in a sippy cup... but i'm not too worried, both dd and ds had no intention of stopping before 2!

Rhys weaned at 21 months during my pregnancy with Niamh
Niamh nursed right through my pregnancy with Isla (she always was way more interested in "bubbies" than Rhys was) and is still nursing often at 30 months
Isla is 2 months and still nursing (obviously)...

Still going strong at 20 months
post #53 of 164
DD was somewhere between 51 months and 54 months. Probably would have been longer if not for my getting pg with ds although she nursed through pg and tandem nursed for a few months.

DS is 17 months and will probably go for years yet.

My big nursling is 51 mos. and my baby nursling is almost 17 mos. and neither are weaning anytime soon.

DS-17.5 months and nursing about 3 times a day. I'm pregnant and even that amount of nursing really makes my skin crawl. I am trying to get through it. OT, but will it be better once the baby is born? If it gets better I would like to continue nursing him.

Still going strong with both children at 18 months and three years.

Hi, I'm new here, but I want to add mine:

DS: 4 years and a month or so
DD: 4 years + (she still nurses twice a day -wake up and bedtime)

I'm not having any more babies and I'm really feeling like my nursing days are drawing to a close and it is so bittersweet. In a couple of weeks when my DS turns 8 I will have been nursing for 8 years straight and I'm so proud of myself considering I knew *nothing* about babies, nursing, etc when I first got pregnant all those years ago.
