Re: How long do you plan to BF?

I'm aiming for 3-6 months this time around. I don't make nearly enough milk to sustain a growing baby but I try to give them every bit I can for the first few months to get them off to a good start. I think I made it to about 2-3 months with my other LOs (with formula supplementation) but I'm hoping some of the extra herbs I plan to try this time around will help me go a bit longer.

If I did make enough milk and could nurse for as long as I wanted to, I'd probably aim for about 12 months or so if I could manage to swing it with my school schedule.
