Who's here with me? How old is your baby?

Abigail is 14 months old, and nursing about 6-8 times a day still, and she nurses to sleep as well. I have no intentions of weaning her; I practice child-led weaning; meaning the child nurses as long as she wants. My DD#1 nursed until she was over 4 years old.

We'll see how long Abby nurses LOL.

Not too many replys here! I nursed Dakota until she was about 14 months or so and pretty much let het decide when she was done. I told people it was something between me and my baby and they could butt out! smile.gif Your awesome for sticking with it.

thumb.gif That's awesome! I want another baby too. I'm still waiting for my cycles to return & Abby is just about 15 months old.

It's OK to nurse while pregnant, if you didn't know that thumb.gif .

smile.gif thumb.gif No time limit at all, you can nurse your child as long as you want to! I've nursed a toddler through a pregnancy, then nursed to at the same time (tandem nursing). I did that for over 2 years, and then I got pregnant with #6, and they both weaned by the time I was around 15-16 weeks. My older daughter was over 4 years old then, and the other was over 2 years old.

Here's a great link to read about fertility while breastfeeding, & nursing during pregnancy:

HTH!
