  • My 1st was FF exclusively. My 2nd was BF til she was 3 1/4 (extenuating circumstances that prevented her from eating normally for a LONG time!) My 3rd was BF for 11 mos. My 4th was BF til 2 yrs. My 5th is still BF at 14 mos. Total=7yrs and counting!

  • My first breastfed for 15 months. That was when my milk dried up b/c I was 5 months pregnant with my son. My son is 2.5 years and still nursing.

  • 11.5 months with my oldest. 9.5 months with my daughter... I got pregnant when she was 8 months old and was cramping when she nursed so I weaned her. 13 months with my youngest. My boys weaned themselves... they wanted a more mobile form of drink LOL!
