Re: How quick do your LOs wean?

My last two stopped at 10 months. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence that they both started walking at 9.5 months. I'm not an "in-love-with-breastfeeding" kind of person though, so if they weren't interested, I gave them a bottle.

Re: How quick do your LOs wean?

My first was 6 months old. I was young, and didn't have much support. The second was 9 months, the third was 9 months. Then the 4th was 18 months, the fifth had a feeding tube, and couldn't eat by mouth. The sixth was 21 months, she nursed until my 7th month of pregnancy with the 7th baby. Baby #7 is now 19 months and is nursing sooooo much more than my other children ever did!! He loves boobies!! Praying for another baby, but I don't think he wants to share mama yet!!

Re: How quick do your LOs wean?

-Uh, A was weaned to formula within a few months, I think.
-Daddy and I nudged B to wean at 3. The day before his 3rd birthday was his last day nursing...a day I set.
-K is still nursing at 3 1/2.
-N is still nursing at 15 months.

All, except for A, were EBF (no bottles or formula) around the clock on demand. I nursed through two pregnancies too, no weaning by either B or K.

Re: How quick do your LOs wean?

I'm tandem nursing my 2 year old and 6 month old (my 5th and 6th babies). All of my other kids weaned at age 4--some completely on their own, others with a lot of limit-setting and eventually I said that we were done.

Re: How quick do your LOs wean?

My mil always dries up at about 4/5 months pregnant and mine give up trying. So far:

Nikolas: 14 months -- 5m pregnant
Kate: 17 months -- 4m pregnant
Charlene: 20 months -- 5m pregnant
Zakary: 12 weeks -- still going!

I so want them to keep nursing but they're done when the milk is gone and for all of the oversupply that I have for my newborns nothing I do when I am pregnant will keep my supply up.

Re: How quick do your LOs wean?

Oldest dd weaned at 2yrs. I did encourage it some due to recurrent pg loss and the dr telling me it was my fault because i was still nursing. i'd done the research and knew better, but being told that made me question everything.

oldest ds is still nursing, will be 4yo in june.
younger ds is still nursing and turned 2 in november.
littlest dd turns 6mo tomorrow and is very much a booby baby. i would guess we have quite a while left before she weans

Re: How quick do your LOs wean?

Didn't nurse the first. second nursed 3 months but do to supply and latching issues we had to stop, third nursed for 6 months and we had supply issues again, the forth nursed exclusively for 22 months. Hoping to get at least 18 months this time around!
