Re: How long are you going to or did you BF?
With DD#1 we trying breastfeeding for the first week, but she had extreme difficulties even though we had a bunch of help from the lactation consultant.
DD#2 breastfed until 7 months, I had extreme PP depression so I did not enjoy it at all, She got really sick at 7 months with diarreah so the dr. wanted to switch her to a soy formula for a few days to help clear it up. (he did suggest that I pump and when she cleared up to start again)I just took the advice and ran with it and she was weaned.
If there is a DC #3 I will breastfeed again (and hopefully enjoy it this time) probably until the baby gets a bunch of teeth. Even though I know you don't have to stop then.
