Re: Whats the oldest youve nursed?

28 months with DD and that was past my personal limit. It got to the point to where I dreaded it.

22 months so far. DD is still nursing now, I'm tandem nursing her and DS. I think she'll nurse for quite some time still, she loves her "nigh nigh"

Elizabeth, I think I have you "beat!"
That is so neat! My longest yet was 4.5 and he woke up one morning and said "mom how do I do this?" and I said I don't know, he stopped trying then never tried again, it was bittersweet. I hope we an beat his record though my mil said her grandma nursed one of her sons til he was 8 that he would come home from school and nurse sweet

DD nursed until 3 1/2 and we stopped because I was pregnant and it was so painful. At that point she was just nursing at night and in the morning, and only for a few minutes.
DS will be 2 in April, and still hardly eats food, he's a boob monster, so I imagine he will nurse just as long

Re: Whats the oldest youve nursed?

My daughter was 42 months when she was weaned. I did the stopping to it simply because I just couldn't take it anymore.

My son is 34 months old, but I'd like to end because I'm pregnant, and it hurts sooooo bad everytime he latches on.

DS self weaned at 11 months and I was crushed! I was set to nurse until age 2+ but he just lost interest. Now I'm expecting any day and will nurse her until she self weans. For whatever reason, DS has been showing interest in the breast lately and if he decides he wants to nurse again, I will fully support him
