    Thank you Lollydolly. Great advice I offered ds a boob while dd was feeding today and he wasn't interested! Mixed signals

    This tandem thing is not easy! Well done for going for 8 weeks. That's awesome

    i had a 21 month gap between my two too. I didn't like feeding both babies at once, and so fed them seperately always, but we are still feeding 12 months later.

    I let the toddler have a bit of a milk feast for a couple of weeks before starting to set more rules again. We did 3 feeds a day for the toddler for awhile, before cutting to 2 (my decision) and then she dropped to 1 and she now feeds just at night before bed, but prob only 4 nights out of 7.

    I found having 2 'babies' really hard for the first 4-6 months, but then it got really fun. i don't think breastfeeding made it any harder, but it was an extra thing to think about.

    take care of yourselves, and accept help if it is offered to you.

    Default Breastfeeding Beyond 12 Months Chat

    Here I am still bf my 27 mth old dd and every time I say I might wean, I just can't do it! She loves it, I love it and quite frankly Im not ready to give it up yet and neither is she!! I keep getting more and more comments from people about stopping! A few weeks ago I had really bad gastro bug and went to the dr to see if there was anything I could do. Dr prescribed something then the chemist said he wasn't sure it was safe for bf and I should probably 'lay off it anyways ' because dd was 'old enough' .... If I wasn't so sick I would have told him where to shove his pills!

    So its about time I joined this thread DD is almost 19mths and shows no signs of weaning anytime soon. I heard a rumour that if bubs hasnt self weaned by about 15mths, then we are in for the long run. Is there any truth to this? DD has also become obsessive about playing with the other nipple while feeding, which I am led to believe is a way of increasing my supply? Love to hear your thoughts

    thought I would check in, as Im not on bubhub much these days. Still breastfeeding my 21 month old. She is going well. She just had surgery to have her adenoids removed, and I was so glad she was breastfeeding still. Very easy to get fluids into her and keep her calm. We have done a lot of flying recently too and I can say that breastfeeding has been useful for going up/landing.. and getting her off to sleep. I haven't had any negative comments from anyone really to be honest. My mother in law was a bit skeptical of the idea of breastfeeding until 2 being recommended by WHO. However, she has seen how determined dd is to keep feeding and refers to her as "the boob baby" and says things like "it can't hurt" and "whatever works" which is her version of approval lol. so yep, that's us!

    DS does this too and I was actually thinking the same thing..that it's probably helping with supply. Clever bubbas they are! Lol.
