DD is almost 13 months old and still nursing constantly. Amazingly, I've still yet to get any negative comments from strangers OR friends & family!

Still planning on nursing for a couple more years at least, but I felt like celebrating this little milestone.

Good for you! I think it was at just about a year that breastfeeding really became fun and easy.

My DD just turned one last week and we're still going strong! Isn't it a great feeling?

thanks for your post. mine is about to turn 1 (april 21). i have no intention of weaning her, although i am starting to get comments from friends and family who *assume* that we will stop nursing at 12 months. seems like it would be a very rude b'day present (for DD and for me) to decide, "OK, one year is up-- no more milk for you". i'm grateful for this forum because i haven't run into a whole lot of people off line who breastfeed longer than a year.
