7.5 months with my first (son). I had to wean for a medical reason. I wanted to self led wean. I'm hoping it'll turn out better for my next child.

14 months with dd#1. Hoping around the same time with #2 (or maybe a little longer). Won't be going past 2 years.

I didn't nurse DD #1 because I didn't have the support or really the knowledge about the details. I'm at 11 1/2 months with DD #2 so we are definitely making it to a year. She has no interest in weaning so I chose self wean. I'd like to nurse until she's 2 but it is up to her. We'll see but the year mark will be made and I am loving it!

I had wanted to BF for at least the first year, preferably longer. My milk dried up with both girls, at 2 months with my first and at 4 months with my second. I tried everything to get my supply back up, but nothing worked. I voted other.

We are at 9 months. I plan to allow him to self wean.

DD is still nursing at 2 1/2 years ~ I would prefer that she self wean before 4 so we'll see how it goes :)

The current goal is 18 mths, but I may go a little longer depending how we're feeling about it at the time. I don't think I'd go past 2 yrs though.

I BF DS2 until he was 2.5 and due to my pregnancy my milk dried up and he weaned. I will nurse DD for as long as I can, I found nursing an older toddler to be difficult for me.

My first I went until 14 months, my 2nd was 22 months and this one is still bfing at close to 17 months. I will go until 2 and then try to wean after that if we are still bfing by that time. With my other two I needed to wean because I was pg again and it was really uncomfortable for me and I wasn't gaining weight during the first trimester and had unexplained bleeding so I felt like I really should wean for a healthy pg. I'm all for CLW but for me I don't desire to go much past age 2.
