Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

We are following child led weaning. I am pregnant so I'm hoping that it doesn't make him wean.

Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

My DD weaned at 14 months and my DS is still nursing at 9 months. He loves to eat solids, so I am wondering if he will wean before she did...

Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

darn it was multiple choice and I only chose other.


Well here is how long I BF all of my children...

1st - 5 months

2nd - 8 months

3rd - 4.5 years

4th - still BF at 2.5 years

5th - Still BF at 7 weeks old

I tandem nursed the last babies and nursed throughout 2 pregnancies.

Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

I chose 'other'...

1st baby: weaned cold turkey after 5.5 months due to illness (which I have since learned I didn't have to do , but I was young and ignorant)

2nd baby: still nursing at 11.5 months and hope to keep going for as long as he wants... except that I really would like to get pregnant again, like, NOW, but I haven't had my 1st PP period yet...

Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

right now my goal is 6 months then everything after than is bonus time. i'd love to get to a yr! my dream would be to nurse and pump until ds is about 12 months old. then not pump at work anymore. just let him nurse at night and in the mornings.

good luck with the paper!

Re: How long has your LO breastfed?

i voted 12-18 for my ds who I weaned around 14 months (because i thought that's what i was supposed to do and everybody looked at me like i had two heads for going a day past 1 year ) and 24-30 months for dd because i'd like to nurse her to her 2nd birthday and she's a "mimi monster" so i doubt she'll give it up before then
