Funnily enough it feels no different to bf a one year old grin

I am delighted to still be bf. Ds2 is my third baby and I did bf the other two until they were toddlers, but I never got as far as this

Congratulations Wallace. I am 2 months behind you - just hoping DD wants to keep going too smile

Congrats Wallace. I too am 2 months behind, albeit a bit reluctantly. Ds won't give it up, he just wants it wants it. He is sweet though.

congratulations Walllace,am virtually sharing my belgian chocolate cherries dipped in Kirsch with you. So important to get them used to the taste for hard liquor via breast milk.

Congrats Wallace - well done!! smile
dd is 2.4 and still having occasional feeds.
Funny isn't it, they only ever age a day at a time and I don't feel any different about feeding her now than when she was 1.4

well done to you and ds, long may it continue grin

Thought I would pop back and share a nice tale. I went out yesterday and had a few glasses of wine. I mentioned BFing (my guard was down!) - cue very shocked friends. However it ended up in a really good convo about extended bfing and what it was like etc. End result was a few friends going away thinking they would look up the benefits for their LOs. It was really nice smile

Three months behind you and tandem feeding a newborn too. Good for you Wallace. It's weird isn't it? I'm scoffing tons of food and getting thinner every day hahahahah.

Well done WMMC and congratulations grin

That is lovely, cmoc, I haven't had any negative reactions, but like you I am very careful who I mention it to!

Happy Birthday to your ds, PinkTulips grin

Brilliant. You must beso proud.

belgo Mon 28-Jul-08 12:28:32

Well donegrin. I'm hoping to get to the two year mark with baby number three - managed 12 months and 19 months with my first to and I especially regretted stopping bfing dd2.

And well done WWMC as well!

Congratulations smile

Thank you.

I did have a lovely moment on friday morn (his birthday) when he was awake in the night and I gave him a bf snuggling in his bed, and I realised that it was exactly the same time that he would have been having his first bf two years ago.

He also was just wearing a nappy bcause of the heat so we having lovely skin-to-skin contact just like after he was born

Fabulous! Congratulations

PinkTulips Tue 29-Jul-08 20:36:22

awwwww, that's lovely grin

ds had a great day for his birthday (stuffed full of chocolate cake!) and i'm very proud of myself for getting this far. it's sad as when dd stopped feeding at 12 months i was relieved as she was always a difficult feeder and i was pregnant and knackered.... now i look at her and feel like i should encouraged her to keep going.

callmeovercautious.... i mentioned bf-ing ds to a friend last week and to my surprise she wasn't horrified or weirded out at all, surprised but interested and positive. i think maybe i've not been giving other moms enough credit for being open minded by not telling anyone blush

WMMC, congrats... i heard you gave birth but hadn't stumbled across your birth announcment thread yet. hope it's all going well so far smile
