How long did you...or do you plan to bf?

how long did you bf or how long do you plan on bfing your lo's....it is multiple choice...because we have multiple lo's ....and did you stop by choice or circumstances?....also for moms who bf for past 2 years old....do you get "looks"...and "comments" that make you feel akward...or just plain mad?

I don't know. DS will be 1 in about 10 days and I don't plan to wean anytime soon. I voted up to 18 months just because that's what I always figured would happen, but if he still wants to do it then, I don't think I'll have any problems with that. I guess we'll just see what happens!

I dont know how long DS is going to be willing to bf. he really likes nursing, it is just that he is sooo independent, he hates sitting still for a moment and he just wants to wiggle most of the time. he stops alot to look around, i am afraid he will wean himself before we can make it to a year. he's 5 1/2 mnths and wants to have everything he sees in my glass!

We are at 8 1/2 months now but we plan to go as long as DD wants. I am hoping for around 18 months.

I'm going for the gold with DS. I only bf DD1 for 7 mo. & DD2 for 6 mo. because of my work schedule at the time, but now w DS I'm in for the long haul! I voted 1.5 years but would go to 2 if it works out that way for both of us.
