No. DS weaned just over 13 mos old. There are times when I miss it but he was still waking 2 times a night and now sleeps all night long so I dont miss that part!!

Nope. Im eight months pregnant with my second. Couldnt imagine tandem feeding.

Yes, it is like a pot of gold for him. He drinks regular milk as well. He is 13 months now and he is going to be with my Mom for a week and a half with out me. So I hope to stop when he is gone. It is going to be hard for both of us. I did get weird looks and comments by some people who heard I was still breast feeding him. But I know it is good for him and he loves it.

I am still breastfeeding. I don't want to give it up yet. I had such a hard time with my first that I am not ready for my second one to stop. She is drinking regular milk and likes using a cup like her older sister, but I still like the closeness. I'm afraid she will be my last and I am not ready to face that yet.

Liam is still choosing the booby--he is slowly weaning himself, it seems. I am ok with that, the longer I can keep him from cow's milk, the happier I am. Terrible allergies run in our family, and I developed an allergy to milk when I was 11, so I am trying to get him to try soy milk too. He's got 6 teeth, and some more on the way, but he's still happy with a few snacks a day, so that's fine with me.

my daughter nursed for the last time on her 1st birthday. the next day, she didn't even try, so i didn't push her. she had been very attached, she would pull my shirt up when she was ready to nurse even. a couple days after she stopped, she tried to lift my shirt. i just told her she was a big girl and didn't need mommy's milk anymore. i gave her a sippy and she didn't fuss. i never imagined how easy it would be to wean her, exactly when her doc wanted her weaned.

My daughter is still feeding VERY regularly! She will have a big feed in the morning before and after morning tea/lunch and dinner and again before bed! She just cant get enough of her mummy juice!

no unfortunetly i had to stop at 4 months. he started getting teeth and seizures for one, and he wasn't getting enough from me he had a very big appitite! im hoping with this baby (due in sept) that i'll be able to breast feed longer.

i never breastfed my son, as the last few children i had it didn't really work out so i just thought it would be easier to bottlefeed straight away.

Yep, my first 2 weaned themselves at about 12 mos, but this one is not showing any signs of weaning yet. This will probably be our last as it is our 3rd and I'm 40 now, so I'm in no rush to wean.

No I just weaned my son last week he was down to only night and morning feed because I had gone back to work so he was at day care. I have to be away next weekend so I couldnt feed his so I weaned him. Its going to be so hard with out him for three days.

Yes, we're still nursing also. I, too, had a goal of 12 months and was excited when he turned 1 to start weaning. But, once 1 year came I just couldn't bring myself to do it. He nurses before naps and bedtime and usually once during the night. I want to let him self wean but I'm hoping it's around 2yrs. Congrats to all the other moms still at it!

Yes, we're still nursing! My daughter is almost 14 months now. I don't mind just two nursings a day - morning and before bed. I'm with the other moms who say they'll nurse for a while longer. It has been a great experience. Even though my daughter doesn't require breast milk any more - according to the doc - the nurturing and closeness are beneficial for her. Its a great way to connect with her after the hecticness of busy days and work.

We're not. My May 08 baby girl weaned herself at 10mos. after she wasn't able to nurse much during a 5 day hospital stay. There's still some milk supply, but very very little. She's down to one bottle of milk at nighttime, though. The rest of the day she gets a sippy cup.

I am still breastfeeding my baby. My plan like a lot of you was to stop once he hit 1. But here we are at 13 months and still going. He is only nursing before both of his naps and at bedtime. I just figured he is probably not completely ready to be weaned, and I am fine with that! :)

Hi, yes I am still nursing 2 - 3 times, morning and night and the occassional afternoon. She is definately taking in less milk, sometimes just a couple of minutes. She was doing great with cow's milk in a cup until I went back to work...She wont have it! So I substitute with yougurt and pudding made with her milk, she won't even have a 1/2 breast milk mix; I think she is just being stubborn about my absence which is bittersweet. I have tried using chocolate & strawberries in the milk to entice her, sometimes it works & sometimes it doesn't; she is a taurus after all!! good luck!

my may baby wanted to stop around 9months...she love people food and LOVES her whole milk! once she new she could eat "real food" she reeally never gave nursing a nother thoughtt....it was bittersweet!
Ariana - posted on 07/07/2009
Nope. My May 08 baby started dropping feedings at around 10 months and we were down to only the morning nursing at 12 mo and then she couldn't be bothered a few weeks after that to nurse in the morning.
Melody - posted on 07/07/2009
yup still going. I will let him stop when he's ready, he's already started to drop his morning nurse so we'll see where that goes.
Alicia - posted on 07/07/2009
I am weaning my son from his very last feeding right now. I started dropping one feeding at a time at about 11 months. He has not minded one bit--I was really surprised because he would get so excited everytime I offered to nurse. I fully intended to go for as long as he wanted but then I got anxious to lose the mid-day feedings and switch him to whole milk. It went so well that I just kept going. Since I am hoping for more babies I don't mind having just about stopped. I think once I know I am done having kids it will be really hard to stop with the last baby!

i'm still feeding my may 08 baby boy.... he totally prefers it over food! but has been quite an unwell baby and his weight is up and down all of the time... he will not entertain cows milk, follow on milk etc... he does have water from a cup during meal times... im pleased he sleeps 12hours through the night though and enjoys his morning breast feed.. im not in any rush to stop and really enjoy our time nursing.. all my friends have stopped feeding.. i just wanted to see if other mums are still feeding past the first year...
Caitlin - posted on 07/06/2009
No. We weaned him at 9 mo because I wasn't making enough milk for him. :( I hoped to make it a year...

I weaned my May08 baby when he hit 1! There are times I miss it but we've made up that time doing other bonding things like rocking and lots of cuddles.
Donna - posted on 07/06/2009
yes, my son loves to nurse. I planned to nurse until he was 12 months, and we made it to this point. He has reflux and he is underweight. The doctor wants me to continue as long as possible. He does not drink much out of the sippy cup still.
Cheryl - posted on 07/06/2009
Yes!! I'm in a position where there's no need to wean until my children want to. My first weaned herself at 11 months because I was preg with the second (didn't know that when you get preg, your milk changes and some babies don't like it). My second went until about 14 or 15 months. My May08 baby seems like there is no end in sight. She doesn't mind her cup with water or diluted juices but has no interest in cow's milk, goat's milk, almond milk (likes chocolate milk)... so breastmilk it is!!
Marney - posted on 07/06/2009
Yes, and I don't see him stopping anytime soon. When he was born, my plan was to make it until 12 months, but now that we've been so successful and we both enjoy our time nursing together...I don't feel like I want to force him to wean. If he wants to, so be it, but other wise....we'll see.
