I am still breastfeeding and will continue until she stops. She is 17 months now and all my other children stopped between 2-2 1/2.

wow! I never thought it was possible to go for that long. I just assumed the milk will dry out, but i guess it makes sense, since breast milk is on demand. I'm encouraged to try and go for as long as I can. well done guys

I stopped at 12 months.  I was sick of pumping at work.  I would have kept the bedtime nursing.  But one breast completely dired up, and he lost interest.  Kudos that keep it up!  I really liked it, but now I realize how convenient my life is without it.  To each their own!

It won't dry out as long as you are still consistently nursing. Good luck!

My son turns two in a few days, and I still enjoy breastfeeding, yesterday morning after I brestfed him, he smiled and with a contended whisper to himself he said, I am so happy! in total surprise I started laughing, I asked him, what makes you happy? He said, " mamma and dadda and nana" ( he calls nursing nana), I again bursted out laughing and so did my son, I asked again - what makes you happy and he said 'nana!".  After a  long uproar of laughter with my son, I called out to  my husband to tell him the story- I said you won't belive this! He responded  I heard the whole thing, and was laughing qietly so as not to interrupt the moment.  I answered the survey saying that I nursed to 3 yrs. as  a  statement to intent- my son has earned one more year of nursing.

That is so cute. I think I would have to nurse longer too if that happened.
