I am currently breastfeeding my second daughter. I made the decision to breastfeed Amber when I was 17 and don't see any reason to change my mind now that I am reaching 30 with Charlotte. My plan is to let her self wean hoping to go at least to a year and let her decide when she no longer needs that comfort. However, I think once she reaches an age where she can choose between french fries and milkies might be long enough. As for nursing number 3... If I am blessed to have a 3rd you betcha! I have been very lucky to have had a great experience with both girls nursing. In fact recently Charlotte has started nursing less. She is down to maybe 4 nursing sessions a day. I can feel that she is starting to choose her Nummies over Milkies more frequently and I'm kinda sad.
I would also like to add that since Amber is old enough to understand that there is a choice between breastfeeding and formula, I think breastfeeding a second or third baby is setting a wonderful example of how amazing a woman's body truly is and what a loving and sometimes sacrificing gift breastfeeding is!
