    That is awesome. It's such a wonderful feeling to provide that body and soul nourishment to your little girl. And nursing a one-year-old is so much fun!

    That's awesome news -- congratulations. My duaghter nursed until just after her third birthday although she had been down to 1 or 2 times a day for quite awhile before that. Now I worry when she is sick because I can't give her antibodies and make sure she gets some nutrition. LOL

    Yay! Congratulations! That's so awesome.
    I stopped pumping at 11 months but continued to nurse my daughter until 17 1/2 months (until I weaned her after being away for two weeks).
    I'm hoping to nurse my son till he's at least 2 years old (if not longer).

    That's awesome! My goal is to just keep going!! LOL. I would love to make it to a year....or at least until she decides "no more" lol. I currently still have to pump as I am away from her at work, but any time we are together it's strictly breastfeeding, mommy/baby bonding time. We love it!!
