Thread: The 3+ Club, whose with me?

    I nursed my oldest daughter till she was 2 1/2 (she just turned 14), my son just weaned on his 5th birthday and I am still nursing my youngest daugher who is 29 months. I have no expectation that she will wean anytime in the near future. Nursing has most definately saved her life. She is 22 months cancer free and counting!!!

    Extended nursing has so many benefits for Mother and child. Congreat's to the 3+ club!!! Happy nursing.

    Emma's still nursing at 3yrs 5mos. Not every day but at least several times a week. She's gone like 2 weeks without nursing though. I limit her for my own sanity, otherwise, I honestly think she'd nurse quite a bit - several times a day probably. Which I just can't do. We'll see how long she goes for.

    We are 3 years and 7 months!!! She nurses about 3 - 4 times a week, usually at bedtime. I'm nursing a 6 month old too, and if it weren't for such a difficult pregnancy she would probably still be nursing 4-5 times a day still.

    Well DS is 29 mo and we are tandeming with DD (DS only nurses before bed). I thought when I was pregnant and the milk went away that he would wean. Not the case. He's definitely a boob man When I ask him he tells me that he will still nurse when he is 3!

    I used to not tell many people that he was nursing before bed b/c I was aware of how 'weird' most people think that is. Now I don't care and I tell people when it comes up. It's my kid, my body, my family, and we will make the choices that are the best for us. I am proud of what we have accomplished, and proud that nursing has obviously been such a great experience for us. I only hope that all my kids will want to nurse so long

    Great job, Mamas! If Will makes it to three I will have nursed him twice as long as either girl.

    We're still there, at 3 yrs 5 mths. He's finally slowing down a bit now, but still loads in the morning and a couple of times during the day if we're at home. I'd never have thought I'd nurse for this long! He says he'll stop when he's 4... we'll see!
