I've read a post about breastfeeding... and I am curious to see how many mothers breastfeed, and for how long, or didn't breastfeed and why? I mean it's the mothers choice, so no bashing against what someone says... I just more want to get an idea of what people actually deal with themselves... I breast feed my daughter until she was 2 or 3 weeks old, and had to stop because I was drying up so fast that she wasn't getting enough to eat and had to go to formula.

I breastfed all 4 of mine for different amounts of time. My first for 3 months, she just wouldn't do it and wasn't gaining weight. My second for 9 months till he started biting. My 3rd for 6 months, I was 41 years old, had serious post-partum (sp?) depression and had a hard time keeping the milk production up, and my 4th only a month or so because she was born at 24 weeks and she was on a feeding tube for 2 months. By the time she could nurse, because of my illness at the time, my body couldn't produce much milk. I did the best I could in each situation but I had a hard time switching to bottle feeding because I loved the closeness of breastfeeding and I really wanted to do it longer.
