Still going...

Ummmmmm...... 6yo still feeding morning and night (to sleep). I'm ok with it but I realised how unusual this is. Milk situation is drops at best. No sign of quitting any time soon :shock:

I have no doubt that it would make night time easier for settling?

Dd2 weaned at 2.5 years, so much easier to boob her for sleeping etc.

Wow that's amazing! I guess it is seen as pretty unusual in our society. But if you're ok with it then... if it ain't broke don't fix it!

DD is still feeding to sleep at night, she turned 4 in March. I'm starting to get aversion, and just in the last few nights I don't know what she's doing but it kinda hurts. I'm hesitant to wean though as I know bedtimes are so much easier feeding to sleep.
