    still going at 2yo, no sign of weaning, and im planning on tandem nursing when bellyfruit arrives.
    dd was mixed fed until starting solids, and has also had prescription weight-gain formula on and off until 18 months.

    Weaned DD at 20mths old cos I was 7mths pregnant and dry. Very very very upset that couldn't attempt tandem feeding. Feel like a bit of a failure

    12 months - I switched to formula to see if it would help with his weight gain (it didn't). I probably would have stopped not long after anyway though.

    Around her 3rd birthday, but in the end it was mornings only from about 2.5 then she skipped a morning here and there, then she cut right back to a few times a week then stopped fully.

    We're still going at 16 months, but down to one feed a day. I plan on feeding until he is two, but I would love it if he self-weaned before then! I am sooo very over it but said I'd go to two and would feel as if I've failed if I was the one to end it before then.

    I bf'd both my dd's until just after 2 as that is what is reccomended minimum by world health organisation. Will do the same with ds, unless he self weans!
