    You are amazing. I'm currently sitting at 5 years and 3 months. My youngest is only 2 months so I'm hoping to make it to at least 6 years. Then I think I might buy a very expensive underwire bra as a reward for all my years effort.

    Fantastic. I gave my kids the best start i could so I'm stoked. They were each breastfed between 12 and 15 months.

    DD3 decided not to feed over 48 hours ago so I'm just relieved it was her choice. I'm going to Melbourne for 5 days in a fortnight so knew it was coming.

    Going to throw my extremely worn out maternity bras out over the weekend.

    Wow!!! I'm currently at 9 months and exhausted! I have a baby that only wants to nurse overnight when he's teething, rendering dad redundant . Hoping to make it to a year with him but then I'll probably be pregnant again and it will all start over!

    Did you feed while pregnant as well? You're amazing!

    Congratulations that's huge.

    It so nice that she decided to stop on her own.

    Nope. I fed DD1 til 15 months then endured 2 and a half years of IVF hell before I was pregnant with DD2. I weaned her at a bit over 22 months to do IVF and was pregnant with DS1 immediately. I weaned him around 14 months and fell pregnant with DD3 about a month later (unplanned).

    So there was a few weeks between weaning and pregnancy each time but I still had milk.

    Worst part is I've had about 3 periods in the last 7 years. Not looking forward to that again.

    Thanks. Yes that's the part I'm sooooo happy about. I really struggle with weaning and they never make it easy for me so it was a pleasant surprise.

    I'm really hoping DS does it on his own but I'm not liking my chances! Maybe with days but don't imagine him giving up nights easily!
