DD has just turned two and we are still nursing every hour, although I have noticed that she is going through the night till about 5 in the morning. I wish she she would ease up a bit during the day. I am not really enjoying it at the moment and I feel like a milking cow! I was determined to breastfeed her after two failed attempts, and when nursing became established CLW was the only way to go

DD2 is 18mo. I never have kept track of how often she nurses, just know it's all the time! I love the toddler phase of nursing, they can really communicate. She now says things like 'yummy in my tummy'. Too cute! No signs of stopping in the near future.

Nursing a 4 year old and a 21 month old. I WOH (as a teacher) so nursing has become their "After-school snack!" My 4 year old asks several times a day, but he's good about waiting if I need him to. My youngest just started saying, "Want side, peeze!" In the cuuuuutest little voice! I'm so glad I found MDC and learned about CLW!

DS is 8 months old and DD is 27 months old and still going strong. I have redirected DD a little -- I counted, and for a while she nursed 20+ times/day! -- and we're down to a more mutually agreeable 4-8x/day. DS is less of a boob hound and very distractible, so I spend more time trying to get him to settle down and nurse. Just goes to show, they're all different.

My oldest was 31 months, my next was 34 months, and my current nursling is 13 months and still nurses like a newborn!! and this time I have no clue how long she will go. The others quit when I was about 6-7 months pregnant with the next. I still had milk, they just were done.... But this time there are no more babies coming!
