Re: How long did you breastfeed?

DS1 self weaned at 15 month because his little brother was getting in the way and I had pretty much no milk thanks to the pregnancy. DS2 stopped nursing for a week at 25 months, honestly I think he just forgot. When he came back for more he didn't get anything. He accused me of taking it!! DS3 is 9 months and I have a feeling he may fall somewhere in between. He's not nearly as addicted as #2 was, but he loves his milkies.

That's really sad that you had to wean since breastmilk has been shown to have stem cells and is being used now in some cancer studies. The doctors should have looked more into that before telling you the wean her.
