Re: How Long did you BF?

I voted 24+ months since that is our goal. I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant and we're still nursing strong with every intention to tandem, I will do child-led weaning with both kids when they're ready.

Re: How Long did you BF?

Due to my pregnancy, DD stopped 2 weeks ago at 17 months. She had been having a rough time getting anything for the past month or so, and gave up. I hope she picks back up when DS is born in a couple months.

Re: How Long did you BF?

Self wean??? DD's #1 & 2 never did. #1 BF till she was 3 yrs and 2 mos. YIKES! I had to tell her that they were broke. How sad, don't know if that was the right thing to do, but it worked. #2 stopped at just over 2 yrs. I pretty much quit offering it to her and that worked without protest. #3 sadly had to be formula fed from 3 mos to now because she was underweight and I quit producing enough milk, even after pumping. Trust me I tried!!

I BF DD until she was 10 months old. I had planned to nurse longer but I got pregnant with my DS and dried up FAST when I hit my 4th month of pregnancy. Nothing I did would bring my milk supply back. I was so sad.

Re: How Long did you BF?

I picked 12-18 because he fits into that age category, but my DS is 15 months and still nursing 4-5x a day.

I nursed DS #1 for two months. DS#2 is almost 3 months and I plan to continue at least until he's a year old.
