Re: How long did you breastfeed?

I'm not going to vote yet. I nursed my oldest daughter until she was somewhere between 12-13 months old. I weaned due to intense pressure from outside influences. It really bothered me. Now I'm older and I could give a hoot what other people think. My youngest daughter just turned 17 months old and we're still going strong.

Re: How long did you breastfeed?

DS1 and 2 were formula fed.
DS3 had a rough start. Finally got things going, then I started taking 'the pill'. Dr swore up and down that it wouldn't affect my supply. He lied
This time I will not go on any pill until BF is strongly established.

DS1 about 27 months weaned due to decrease in milk supply from pregnancy. Started again after baby was born but lost interest quickly.
DS2 about 20 months due to pregnancy. Didnot want to nurse again when milk came in.
DS3 9 months and going strong.
