  • DS1- I gave up weeks after I got home from the hospital due to no support.
    DD1- 7 months. We wanted to TTC, didn't know you can do both.
    DD2- 6 months, same reason as DD1
    DD3-3 months :( To my chagrin. She went on a nursing strike and I could never get her back on it. She is my last baby and I wanted to do it at least 1yr.

  • DS1 - 7 months
    DD - 15 months. I wanted to go longer but she was too busy trying to keep up with her brother
    DS2 - 14 months. He went on a nursing strike and found the cup easier. Oh well.

  • I breastfed my son for about 2 and half months before my milk diminished. I'm currently breastfeeding my almost 5 month daughter. :)

  • Wish I had gone longer -

    Baby 1 - 11 months, weaned because of pregnancy
    Baby 2 - 11 months, refused me after I ate eggplant!
    Baby 3 - 2 years and 10 months (pregnancy)
    Baby 4 - 1 year and 9 months (I was tandem nursing #3 and 4, they stopped about the same time)
    Baby 5 - still going strong at 10 months
