Re: How long are you going to or did you BF?

We just passed our 6 month milestone. At first I set our goal for 6 months, then we reached it. Then I set it for 1 year and read the many benefits of extended BFing a toddler. I don't believe we will go past 3 years but I will leave it up to my DD when she wants to wean. My milk and my love has so many benefits! I want to give her both as long as she will let me!!!

I nursed dd until she was 21/2 i was pg with ds and having some crazy feelings so it was best for both of us that she weaned and i think she was totally ready. I hope ds nurses as long as dd or as long as he needs

Re: How long are you going to or did you BF?

My first nursed until 1 yr, at that point I was pg with number two and my milk had all but dried up - I also had never heard of nursing longer.. Number two had nearly weaned by 6mo, I tried hard to get my supply back up and managed to hang on until about 9-10mo when we finally gave up. 3 and 4 have never had formula and ds3 nursed till he was about 20mo, when I was halfway through my pg with #4 and my milk supply was all but gone. DD is still going strong at almost 7mo with a little taste here and there of table food.

I plan on breastfeeding until my son self-weans. There isn't a poll option for that.

Malikai. i BF him until he was 9 months old. i was preggo with dd and my milk dried up
I BF dd until she was 12 months old, again i was/am preggo and my milk dried up
after this time im going to take a break from having kids, so hopefully i will be able to BF a bit longer.

Re: How long are you going to or did you BF?

we are at 23 months now....at this point, i am limiting her access, which is a form of partial weaning....but we will continue for at least a few more months. I had hoped to do CLW, but the relationship has broken down, and I don't think I could do this for 1 or 2 more YEARS.
