DS has been nursing for 4 years 7months. He's an only.
Wow!! You are all A.MAZING!
I've been nursing straight for 4 years 8 months. Most of that has been tandem nursing, some of it tandem nursing while pregnant. I'm encouraging DS2 to be done with nums in a few days when he turns 3 and I'm looking forward to a few years of just me and DD2 nursing. (The plan is no more babies...)

We've got a new addition - our first babygirl - arriving mid to late February! Life is good.
7 years 9 months and counting.
DD will hit 5 years of nursing next month - but only 10 months of that was not tandem! ODS nursed for a month shy of 5 years - I didn't do CLW with him despite the age. DD and YDS (2 years old) are still nursing so I'm guessing I'll hit the 10 year mark by the time we're done.
Been nursing since December 2008 and still going strong although the 2 yr old is weaning off my 4 month old is still going strong. Guess that's only 2 yrs 2 mo. First one weaned mutually at 2 months of pregnancy (February 2008) due to nipple pain being excruciating, but went really smoothly for both of us. :-) That was 20 months of nursing my first. ;-) You go girls!
I wonder if I ever responded to this thread...
I breastfed 8 years 4 months consecutively. 4 1/2 years of that were tandem and 6 months of tandem nursing while pregnant with #3.
#1 CLW at 3 years 9 months because I was 6 months pregnant and the milk just wasn't flowing as fast as a sippy cup. He shared with his sister for a little over 2 years.
#2 CLW at 4.5 years when she decided that since it was Jan of a the new year in which she would start school, she was big enough to stop nursing. She tandem nursed the entire time she nursed (except for 2 months while I was very pregnant).
#3 CLW at 4 years 2 months because she was too busy playing and felt like a big girl. She shared with her sister until she was 2 yrs old.
I have one amazing son who is 5 years 6months, and he still nurses every single day. It may just be a quickie, what I like to call drive by nursing, but it's every day. No end in sight.
This thread is great, as I am the very only person irl who I know who has been nursing babies as long as I have...
I've been nursing now for 8 years and 9 months exactly today. I have three children, two of whom are still nursing.
12 years, 6 months, 3 weeks, 6 days! ;)
About 16 months of that was spent nursing one child. The rest was spent tandem nursing, tandem nursing through pregnancy, triandem nursing, and triandem nursing during pregnancy. Most was spent triandem nursing. I'm currently nursing "only one."
Mama to A (12), Z (11), H (9), C (5), A (3) and 4 angels.
You guys are awesome. I only have one and we have been nursing for three years now ... What an inspiration to see so many of you nurse past infancy and tandem nurse! Awesome! I am looking forward to more years of nursing as well as we are thinking about #2 :)
Here we are in August 2011 and we're still going strong. 4 years 3 months. That includes nursing through a pregnancy and miscarriage, 150 pounds of weight loss, training for a marathon, and so, so much more!
