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)...
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.
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.
