Re: How long did you breastfeed?

ds is 8 months old and going strong...we had to stop for three days when he was 3 weeks old. that led to supplementing and low supply issues. but we recovered and he has been EBF since December 24, 2206!!!

Re: How long did you breastfeed?

Ds Nursed till he was 3.5yo. then we weaned when I was PG with Ds2.. but then when he saw what his brother was getting he decided he wanted it again..*sigh* so I tandem nursed for the past 6 months and now my first is 4.5 and I showing no signs of weaning so I enforced a nighttime only rule and I am trying desperately to wean him gently because I don't want him to have jealousy issues with his brother.. but I cannot do this anymore...he is going cold turkey soon..and Ds2 will be able to nurse until he chooses not too.. hopefully it will be before kindergarten though! the upside is my boys are hardly ever sick... the downside is my boobs will never recover and they are a sad sad sight..LOL!

Re: How long did you breastfeed?

DS1 - self-weaned at 12mo when I was 5mo pregnant with #2.
DS2 - weaned at 11mo after a long struggle to bring back my milk supply which was nearly gone by 6mo.
DS3 - self-weaned at 19mo when I was 5mo pregnant with #4.
DD - still nursing once or twice a day at 17mo. She's not likely to stop and would nurse more if I could stand the pain. Neither one of us is ready to stop, but I've been dealing with cracking dry nipples through my whole pregnancy and now that my milk is pretty much gone, it's even worse. We're just hanging on so she can tandem nurse when the baby comes.

Re: How long did you breastfeed?

I nursed DS#1 until he was 5 months old. I returned to work and kept getting sick and my supply went down from all the decongestants. I got frustrated and weaned him. DS#2 is still nursing at 16 months and I am going to let him self-wean.
