As of today, I have been breastfeeding one child or another for six consecutive years. DS2 was born August 28th 2006 and nursed through my pregnancy with DS3 and tandemed for a few months so there were no breaks between them. DS3 is 2.5 years old now and still nursing. I'm 13 weeks (and 6 days) pregnant so I'm not anywhere near done nursing yet!

I feel like I need a long nap...without someone tugging at my breasts lol. Lactating is hard work!

You're wicked awesome. I feel you for sure on needing a lactation vacation and I'm only going on 2 years. If DD continues through my next pregancy (as I STRONGLY anticipate she will) and Next Baby nurses as long as DD, I'll hit the 6 year mark for sure. Something to be very very proud of, mama!

Wow, that is awesome! I've been having a pity party for myself over here the last two weeks since I feel like I'm nursing the entire family over here without a break but I'm just skimming the surface of 2 years with my littlest ones. Phew. Hearing about your six years totally puts a smile on my face again!

Thanks everyone. I'm definitely proud of the accomplishment and exhausted. Wink

DS3 let me know today, "I love these boobies" LOL. He cracks me up sometimes.
