Meaning all your kids put together, how much of your life have you spent nursing? Was any of it tandem nursing? How much of it was straight with no breaks?

He shows no inclination to stop. The other day I asked him "why do you like the boobahs so much?" To which he replied without hesitation: "cause da're becial

All 4 of mine added up is 102 months. No tandem, with 12-18 month breaks in between. And I've never nursed while pregnant. All my time is stretched across 13 years.

35-36 months collectively and still going...

Did not tandem nurse... even if I wanted to, there was no way I could with my pregnancy complications. I think there was a 8 month break between my two kiddos (my son was early).

Serenity nursed regularly until 3 years, 5 months then until 4 randomly.

Caidence nursed for 30 months.

22 months were tandem, unless you count Serenity's random sessions, then it would be 29 months tandem.

9.5-10 months were during pregnancy. Then through 1 miscarriage. Caidence weaned during my second miscarriage.

This is my first break since 9-17-08, and it'll end late Sept/early Oct 2013.
