Extended breastfeeder

Hi everyone!

I'm new here, and thought I'd introduce myself. I've got 2 girls, ages 5 and 3.5. My youngest still breastfeeds. I had planned to let her decide when she was done with the boobs, but now I'm wondering if she'll ever be 'done',lol.

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Welcome and howdy!! That's awesome that your 3.5 year old is still nursing. I wanted to nurse as long as possible with my last but sadly she weaned herself at about 10 months. I was working full time and having supply issues. I'm now nursing my 4 month old with the same goal as last time~ to go as long as possible!!

Tell me, what's your secret?

I think more then having a secret, it was just her really loving to nurse! I nursed on demand...which for the first 3 months seemed like all the time! Then she developed a bit of a schedule for herself, which I followed. I didn't actually start solid foods until she was 9 months old! She had only my milk until then. That wasn't planned, but she was thriving so her pediatrician wasn't concerned.

I expected her stop long before now...

She's my second, and my first was on formula at 4 months, due to supply issues and some really bad advice from her doctor. She's healthy so I can't complain.
