At 18 months DD still nurses 18-20x day, we're planning on CLW with her and barring any OUTSIDE issues, we're looking forward to a long relationship.
I have a ton of support, the ladies that I hang with are nursing 2, 3, and 4 tear olds and VERY helpful and supportive.
I'm fortunate to have a couple LLL leaders I can call friends....

Michelle, vegan mama to my two sweeties, L, 4/21/04 and C, 10/29/06 married to my Bryce for 20 years.

I only voted for my older nursling - she's 4.5 yo - but I'm also nursing my DS, who turns 1 next week. This might be the only place where I don't have the oldest nursling....

DS is 3.5. He’s cut waaaaay back lately. He is now starting to go a whole day without nursing now that he’s giving up naps and not wanting to nurse to sleep on most nights. I think we’re just about done. :

DD is 28 months and loves her milkies.

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

My nursling is 3.33 years old. He still loves to nurse, but don't have any milk due to pregnancy. He's happily planning which side will be his and which side will be the baby's once the milk returns.

Parker is a little over 21 months and still going strong. This is the only place where that sounds unimpressive!

dd is 4 and nurses 1-4 times a day. The duration is getting shorter and shorter though. I have my fingers crossed for winter weaning - but at this point am in it for the long ride

My dd is only 28 months and she still seems little to me, but she is getting bigger every day. My son was almost 4 when he weaned.

My ds is 3 years 1 month old.

He shows absolutely no inclination to wean and as I'm fully committed to CLW and we're going to start TTC in the next few weeks, I guess I might be tandem nusing before too long.

DS is 13 months now, so we have several more years of nursing ahead of us.

Though, I have to admit, my view of nursing had changed very much. Before I got pregnant I wanted to nurse for 6 weeks. When I was pregnant, I planned on trying to nurse for 9 months or a year. Now I know that DS will let me know when he is done. If he's old enough to ask for it then he's young enough to still need it.
