27 months--weaning now and feel so torn up about it. In fact, this thread actually brings me to tears! (Apparently weaning messes with your hormones ;)

In a country that is so weirded-out by extended BFing, it's incredibly inspiring and uplifting to read all these responses.

22 + 1 = 23

 

22 months w/ DS until he self weaned due to my pregnancy w/ DD. BF w/ DS was a breeze and I loved it! I am now currently nursing DD and have been for the last month. We are still going strong despite some pretty bad reflux which totally sucks and makes BF aalot more difficult.

DD: 40ish months (can't quite recall her last nursing, but I know I was pregnant with DS)

DS: 26 months and counting

The ease of nursing my DS in his early months compared to the awfulness of the first few with DD was such a relief. I'm glad I stuck with it but there were some dark days with DD. All new mamas deserve as much support as they want/need, free of guilt and confusion and doubts. Good luck to all those just starting out!

34 months and counting, the last 12 were tandem. I'm done having babies, so my prediction is by the time I'm done it'll be 58 months (ish)!

DS1 30 months, DS2 28 months, DS3 1 month and hoping to nurse to at least 30 months again. 16 months with DS1 & 2 were tandem. So 43 months total breastfeeding, 58 if you go by children separately.

79 months total and counting!

 

I realize that it has been and is now, a deep privilege to be able to breastfeed my children.

I am grateful to God for this and also to the mothering community for the great support in breastfeeding.

I had a really rough start nursing my daughter, and remember setting goals to make it for just one more week.  Making it to three months was a major accomplishment.  

 

But, we got past it and I'm proud to say that I've been nursing my daughter for 30 months, and going strong!

Mine (I can't remember if ds1 was 10 or 11, so I'm going to claim the potential "extra"  shy.gif ):

 

11 + 21 + 27 + 37 (and still going - I want her to wean, to be honest) = 96.

 

Okay - as much as I want dd2 to wean, part of me hopes she goes another four months, just to bring me to the 100 mark.
