Re: How long did you breastfeed?

My oldest was 39 months, my second was 33 months (weaned during my next pg because I lost my milk), and my dd is 37 months and hasn't been able to nurse for a few weeks due to a mouth injury. I don't know if she will start back up afterward or not...she keeps trying to nurse but it hurts too much still.

DS: we made it 20 months almost to the day. DH decided he wanted to take him on a fishing trip while I had to work and when they got back DS didn't care to nurse anymore.

I nursed DS for 3 months due to low production and he was FF from there on out.
For DS#2, we will give it a shot and will nurse for at least up to a year.

Re: How long did you breastfeed?

DD#1: 7 months ~ I was afraid of teeth & didn't like the "latch on and yank as she looked across the room".
DD#2: 6 months ~ ditto
DS: 8 months & counting... ~ he's much more cuddly and I am much more thrifty! Plus he's my last baby, so I want to try for as long as I can.
