    Now 2.5 years. He's still feeding three times a day when he's at home. Has no milk at all at his dad's. Apparently cows milk is no substitute.

    Is it okay if I subscribe? My son (first child) is not quite 6 months, so I don't really 'fit in' with the rest of you, but we've been through so much and I thought our breastfeeding was going to be over a number of times-but we're still feeding! . This thread has inspired me so much to hope that we might still be feeding beyond 12 months. Fingers crossed! Thanks to all the lovely women who aren't bowing to the socio-cultural pressure to wean early. Your journeys are so encouraging to me

    Ok so it looks like everyone here is feeding a 12 month plus. If we're still feeding in 6 months, I'm checking back in! Thanks for this thread.

    Were still nursing here, 25 1/2 months now .

    Now i'm coping the you only do it for your benefits comment :/ im like erhm no, nursing is AGONY, the nipple draw down makes me want to scream and i can physically tell when the milk runs low.

    To which i am told i would wean him if it was that bad :/ erhm no again.

    I have a pretty good expressing routine going now and am getting a full bottle for my DD18mo in the AM. My son is now sleeping 12+ hrs a night (hes 15 weeks) and I just get up before him in the morning and express a bottle instead of letting my breasts adjust to my sons demands. Really happy! Shes loving the milk as well and im enjoying the fact that I don't *have* to keep cows milk in the house anymore as DH and I don't drink it

    I'm feeling very down right now - it looks like I have to start night weaning my DS2 He has diabetes and his glucose levels have been out of whack at night...his endocrinologist thinks it is because he wake frequently for breastfeeds. I'm so worried about not being able to comfort him back to sleep with the breast He takes great comfort in breastfeeding, I know he's going to be upset

    That's a bummer witwicky. I night weaned DS just over a month ago as I'm pregnant and just couldn't handle it anymore. He did adjust to it really well and now sleeps through most of the time. It's hard when he wakes from teething or being unwell. What used to take 10 minutes can take more than an hour! Hope it's painless for you both.

    Just thought I'd pop in here for a second opinion. I'm still demand feeding my 15 month old but went to see the doctor today as his non-existent eating habits are really starting to concern me. His weight has been the same for the past 5 months and his height is in the 5th percentile! I've tried eeeeverything...except refusing him the breast.

    Of course, I was told I need to wean him down to 2 feeds a day and just offer water/food in between. I sort of knew I would be told this and I also sort of know it's probably the right thing to do but it's such a big comfort for him and I'm really scared to say no to him!

    Does anyone else have experience with this sort of situation? What would YOU do?

    PS: I'm not going to night wean him...he only feeds once of twice a night and that's fine by me. I don't think that's enough to mess up his day apatite anyway.

    My little man refused to eat much at that age too, he hit 14 kilos at 14 months and at 24 months is 14.2 kilos.

    I refused to wean as there is no guarantee he would eat the food and then i'd be even more stuffe.
