  • My baby didn't latch--so I pumped and pumped and did it for almost 7 mos (1 week shy).

  • Exclusively for 3 weeks, partially until 7 weeks old. I wish I could have done it for at least a year, but I had a low supply and the baby never learned to latch on correctly :*(

  • My son is 23 months and still nursing. He's never had formula or a bottle. I was due a few days ago, hopefully new baby will nurse just as long.

  • so far 5 months. she's still nursing. I will nurse until I get pregnant again or a little over a year-whichever comes first.

  • 10 months now, from what other people tell me that's pretty good most of them only made it a few weeks or months.
