Re: How long did you breastfeed?

I was grossly uninformed with my first, thought he wasn't getting enough, started supplementing, and wound up completely switched over to formula by 4.5 months.

I made it to 14 months with DS2, and I was ready to be done. My initial goal was 6 months, then 1 year, and I got pregnant right after his 1st birthday. He was down to nursing 1-2 times a day at that point anyway, and it was getting uncomfortable for me, so I decided to try offering him a sippy when he "asked" to nurse, and he only asked 2 or 3 times and took the sippy very easily as a substitute. Weaning couldn't have been easier.
