I've officially been BFing my youngest for over 12 months! I'm so happy, so thrilled to be at this point! Ben still loves to nurse and seems to really enjoy breastmilk too. It's almost hard to get him to drink anything else, although he does just in lil sips. AF hasn't returned either, so this is totally new for me. I BF'd Jack (my oldest) for 12 months but he began weaning at 10 months, right around the time I had my first PP AF, then I was pregnant. I'm enjoying the lack of AF for now. I wonder how long I can expect Ben to want to BF on his own...any ideas? Is it normal for toddlers to night nurse from time to time even when they sleep through the night usually? Sometimes Ben will wake up in the middle of the night and just nurse, nurse, nurse.

Mama to 3, expecting #4 in December!

Congrats and welcome

Most babies will not self wean until 18-24 months at the earliest, so i would not be concerned about it. We still nurse 2-6 times a night on average, every child is different. I have not gotten AF back either!

Congrats and welcome! Jacob never STTN til 14 months. Then occasionally he would still wake and want to nurse back to sleep, but that happened less frequently. Now at 22+ months, we only nurse morning and bedtime. I would like him to self-wean, but 2 years is MY limit, so I'll be encouraging the weaning process soon.

Congratulations on the first year!!! My son just started sleeping through the night a little over a month ago. He will be 2 in March.

DD didnt sleep through the night until around 2.5 years. I dont know if it was pushed by my being pregnant and the milk supply being barely there. She is still nursing 1-3x a day even though I doubt that she gets more than a trickle at best. I dont expect her to wean any time soon and I'm OK with that.

I didnt get a PP AF until DD was almost 18 months. I was quite pleased with that. I even got such a long break that I was starting to miss it. Now that we're not planning any more children I'd be happy if it stayed away even longer this time.

Thanks, ladies!

I think 2 years is the max I could ever BF, but I hope that Ben BFs for up to 16 months at least. I'd be totally fine with AF staying away for that long (or longer) too!
