    Yay MichelleK. Happy Birthday to your daughter, happy Birthing day to you, and Congrats on reaching 12 months. Plenty of time for your daughter to stop feeding later, you are providing all the good stuff she needs now.

    Can I join in too ladies? I am still feeding my almost 14 month old DS and no plans to stop yet!!! So handy at the moment as he is sick and it works wonders for settling him in the night when he's awake coughing. I can't really believe I've made it this far as sadly I only made it to 6 weeks with my first son. Feels like I've achieved something great!

    Well it's time for me to say goodbye to this thread! I am in the process of weaning 2.5 year old dd it's for the both of us really although I still cried . She's doing well so far but still cuddles into them at night and has to have one hand down my top. I'm proud of myself for getting this far! Yay to all the mums and bubs and good luck to everyone xxx

    Hi everyone
    Hoping I can join this thread, i've only just found it! I just posted a new thread in this section (before i saw this one) so will copy it here for some advice please:

    Hi Ladies
    I am hoping for some advice here, wondering if this is normal: DD has recently turned one and is still BF, been on solids since 6 mths. She has at least 3 feeds usually 4 a day usually after solid meals (3 mains & a snack), i'm wondering is this too many breastfeeds? Most people i've spoken to are saying she should be on only 2 or 3 a day. She is only a little bub and doesn't eat much solids but loves the boob, although in saying that she is slowing picking up and eating more lately.
    I'm starting to feel the pressure from my mother, my baby nurse and society in general to be weaning and bf less but am not sure what I should be doing? I've tried introducing cows milk in a sippy cup but she keeps spitting it out, she will only drink water out of a cup. I'm scared to start cutting down on the BF's cause she is so light (only on 5% percentile) and worried she wont get enough food and be hungry.
    I do enjoy BF still and want the weaning process to be gradual (over 6mths?) but am not really sure how to go about it at this stage.

    Any advice? Feel a bit lost and losing confidence lately, I dont know anyone who has BF for as long.

    TIA
    YY

    Hi YY, our little girls must be about the same age. Dd turned 1 3wks ago.

    We are much the same, exclusively bf until 6mths then started on solids (purees in the beginning but found myself moving towards blw pretty quick as purees were doing my head in!)

    We have just cut out our 4th 'snack' about 2wks ago. It was pretty late in the afternoon and was slowing getting later and later. Now she has 3, morning after waking, after her midday nap and before a bath at night.

    I don't have concerns with her weight (she is on the 50th for weight but well, well above the 97th for height) and she eats anything and everything so not the same boat as yourself but I would think we are still a long way off dropping to 2 feeds

    Hi YinYang congrats to getting to the 12 month mark!
    Honestly I would just do whatever feels right... My DS who is almost 18 months still has at least four breastfeeds a day (...and lots more overnight). We did BLW from six months and it's taken him a long time to get into solids. He has three meals a day, though I would still consider breastmilk as his main source of nutrition. He just loves it so much, and I can see how much it benefits him (helps calm him, put him to sleep, etc) that I couldn't imagine decreasing his feeds. Like you I've felt pressure from my MCHN and others, but as soon as I realised to trust my instincts and DS cues then I realised how simple it all was = if DS wants BM then he can have BM. I'm sure your DD will feed less in her own time and when she's ready

    Hi everyone. I am still bf my 19 month old dd and am currently 16 weeks pregnant...so I'll be looking out for some tandem feeding advice hopefully!

    YinYang - my dd was still having 4 feeds at 12 months and I too started to feel pressure from people to drop feeds. I'm glad I didn't do it but I did often worry I was unintentionally weaning by introducing morning and afternoon tea. Dd dropped to only 2 feeds at around 16 months but doesn't seem like giving those up any time soon (for which I'm glad). Don't let others opinions sway you. Do what feels right for you. I really don't think 4 feeds sounds like a lot.

    Hi Yin Yang. I think you just do what works for you and your child. I have a 13 month old who has a morning and evening breastfeed, only because I work. However, I think she is weaning as she has given some good chomps lately, I'm not sure I can tolerate the pain any longer. She is a tiny girl, and I am sure breastfeeding is the reason she hasn't been sick when all others at Childcare have.
    Just do what works for you, ignore what others say! Best of luck.
