    Wow amazing efforts here!

    I'm still feeding my 2.5 year old during this pregnancy, something I never imagined doing (in the sense that I never actually put an end limit to our feeding relationship) so I'm really happy..

    She feeds as soon as she wakes, before nap and before bed and a few times in the day..still brings her comfort and I hope she still feeds to take up my excess supply when new baby comes in 8ish weeks!

    You sound similar to me BabushkaMumma, i am 32 weeks pregnant and my 19 month old feeds similar amounts. A few times during this pregnancy i have thought she was going to stop feeding but she has kept coming back.

    She night weaned earlier in pregnancy, which i was glad about, and even more happy that she initiated it and i didn't have to encourage it.

    Great Achievement Mother's Love

    Congrats on your pregnancy! I'm 32 weeks too...! Not long to go now..

    Thankfully DD has nightweaned (somewhat - last night she had a feed at 2am as I was too tired and just rolled down to her mattress without even thinking about it lol) so I'm happy about that too..it did take quite a lot of gentle guidance and took maybe 2 months? But I had decided to start at 2 years old so she Understand what we were doing..

    All the best for your last few weeks!!

    I've been away from this thread for a long time, so now I'm down from nursing 3 children to nursing only one.

    I always said I'd allow self weaning, but both boys were over 5, and in the end I got fed up with it and said "Sorry boys, I'm all booby-ed out, no more" and they were absolutely fine with it.

    Whenever I had spoken to them beforehand about weanng, they were very resistant, but hey, when the time comes, the time comes....

    So only feeding my almost 3 yr old now, he's a total booby monster

    Awesome to see everyone who is here!!

    Hello ladies... Haven't read the posts yet but I guess I can officially join this group now?!? Woohoo!

    Wow my little man turned 1 a few weeks ago (omg where does time go) and he still breastfeeds every couple of hours around the clock (even though he's on full solids now!) he's always been a booby monster and I don't see that changing anytime soon so we are definitely in it for the long haul I am so proud that I have been able to have a wonderful, beautiful breast-feeding relationship for over a year now!!

    Will be great to chat with some other Mummies breastfeeding older babies!


    Sent from my iPhone more than likely while I should be doing something else!

    I breastfed my son until he was 16 months old. Unfortunately, I felt I had to wean him so I could fall pregnant again. He weaned himself down to one feed a day at bedtime but my cycle still didnt return until I stopped bf completely. I was quite sad to have to stop cos I had hoped to keep feeding through the second pregnancy and tandem feed when bub number 2 was born (if that was what my son still wanted to do). Weaning was easy though, I just did the "don't offer, don't refuse" technique and after about 5 days he didnt ask again.

    I hope I can feed baby number 2 for as long or longer but I can't help but feel guilty that the second baby will be feed for longer than number 1.

    Oh it is the BEST having a b/f toddle on board to help with newborn engorgement and in the very beginning my DS wanted to feed when I was feeding DD so he would lie on my lap and she in his lap and they would feed together. So so sweet.

    I am tandem feeding my 2 1/4 and 4 month old. It's not something I publicise because the odd person who has found out has been utterly horrified meh, couldn't care less.

    Today I bought myself 3 Hot Milk bras for dd & ds to give me for xmas, quite appropriate really
