Re: Whats the oldest youve nursed?

Elizabeth, I think I have you "beat!"
I am right there with you, although if my oldest had his way, he would still be nursing. He turns 7 in a month. But it had been on and off (more off than on) since he turned 4yo and I got pregnant with DS2. He would sometimes go a month or two without nursing, then ask to several days in a row. I think he has nursed once since getting his first permanent teeth last fall, but I am not quite sure how long it has been.
