36 + 30 + 48 = 114 months!!

 

The perfect amount.  After I nursed my first son for three whole months, I felt so amazed that I'd nursed every few hours around the clock for three months straight.  Ha ha.  That WAS an accomplishment, but only the beginning!

It's amazing how proud everyone is of nursing for a long time. When I was a young mom, I was conflicted about nursing for a long time with my first and got more comfortable as we went along and with future kids. It was just so uncommon at the time.

 

I also think there's a kind of ambivalence that is part of the mom's weaning too. Do any of you feel ambivalent about nursing for a long time even though you know it's cool or do you feel totally relaxed about it?

I'm a dairy farming mama so as another mom wrote being a working mom (part-time in my case) can really make nursing a challenge. We made it for 22 months though! And honestly as Peggy O' Mara wrote I was ready to be done when I was, I was exhausted from it and Eli was starting to lift up my shirt, etc which just given my personality type I never felt entirely comfortable with. It worked for both of us to stop when we did. It took everything I had to nurse that long as farming is hard work and nursing is hard work. I wrote a post about it in honor of World Breastfeeding Week. Breastfeeding changed my perspective (for the better!) about my work forever. http://tractormom.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/farming-with-teats-er-breasts-er/

 

To all of you mamas out there tandem nursing and extended nursing - my glass (well coffee mug ;) is raised to you!
