Is anyone else nursing an older child?

Ds, who is 16 months, is still nursing a lot. It hasn't been too painful so far, but it's had its moments. I don't think my supply has diminished much, if at all, as I'm still leaking sometimes. He has been eating solids a lot more lately, so that does make me feel a lot better. I dried up when I was pregnant with him at 4 or 5 months.

I'm nursing my 17 month old. The entire first trimester was excruciating. It has been much better lately. She is down to only nursing once or twice a day. My supply has dropped quite significantly, i'm not sure if it is because she doesn't nurse as often, or being pregnant.

I just weaned my 3.5 yo.Click here to enlarge I weaned cold turkey and had no engorgement. When I had my m/.c last fall I didn't nurse during the hospital stay (about 48 hrs total?) and was HORRIBLY engorged. I was surprised not to hve any issues this time, bc I weaned at the same time I m/c last time- about 12 weeks.

He is really sad about it. I am 13 weeks. This is the first time in almost seven yrs I haven't had a nursling.Click here to enlarge Its weird.

Savannah weaned herself when I was around 17 weeks pregnant. I think my supply was nonexistant.

I went as long as I could though. Click here to enlarge

I never thought I could...
Steady feet, don't fail me now

I don't remember what day this is without coffee, but it's a day and it's going.

What kind of clothes do you suppose would be worn by a man with a mole on his nose?

DD self weaned in late Feb. I got pg in late Dec. She had been slowly , very slowly weaning anyway. She was down to a few times a day and at night. All night. I pushed the night weaning. Distracted during the day and I guess it tasted funny. Plus it was very painful and I am sure she felt me tense up.I am completely dry now.
