Re: How Long did you BF?

I wanted to nurse at least a year, with every intention of only weaning when DD's were ready. Unfortunately I didn't have the supply to make it past the first month with either girl. I always have a twinge of guilt/jealousy when I see older babies nursing, wishing I could have given that to my girls.

Re: How Long did you BF?

All three of my girls self weaned...dd #1 was 22 1/2 months, dd #2 was 8 months (and I was thankful just to get to there...she never showed much interest and always was more interested in what her big sister was doing. I had thyroid cancer, had to have my thyroid removed and she never went back after surgery ) and dd #3 weaned at 13 months - I was SO not ready to have her stop, but she just refused...ah well...

My daughter weaned herself a few days before she turned 16 months old. I was (am) pregnant with my second baby and I have to admit that I was happy that she weaned herself before this baby came. I had no interest in weaning her, but I also had no interest in tandem nursing.

I weaned Mad at 27 months. I hope to breastfeed Evie until she's 2 as well. She just turned 9 months on Saturday.
