My ideal is 2-3 years. Once I hit that point with both girls, I started to feel "done". It will be interesting to see how things go with Alexis because I went through a pregnancy with the other 2 that really hurt my breastfeeding relationship with both of them. I was really sore and my milk dried up and breastfeeding wasn't enjoyable anymore. Abby kept nursing and we tandem nursed, and she weaned right after her 4th birthday, but I wouldn't have cared if she weaned after I got pregnant because I quit enjoying it after that and continued because she wanted to. Anna weaned a few months into my pregnancy, right after she turned 2 and that was good for me. We dont' plan on having another, so I'm hoping to enjoy nursing Alexis for as long as she wants to continue.
