  • 2 months. I would have loved to longer but at around 8 weeks PP I had to get gallbladder surgery and due to complications I was in the hospital for a week and had SO much Vicodin in my system due to the pain that I didnt want it to be passed on to my son. So I stopped. Hopefully if I ever have more children breastfeeding will be easier and I can do it for longer

  • My first I breastfed until he was 10 months old, I had to stop due to the fact that it was starting to cause me to have bad cramping and I was 20 weeks pregnant. I'm breastfeeding my second son now, he's 2 months old, I plan to do child led weaning.

  • Me personally or how long have I breastfed my son? I was breast fed until 2 1/2 years. My son is 13 months and still breastfeeding, I just had a positive pregnancy test, so I'm going to the doctor on monday to get a blood test and make sure all is well. I plan on breastfeeding through most of my pregnancy. I don't know about tandem feeding yet (is that spelled right?) But I am Breastfeeding the next jsut as long. I think its a beautiful thing. =)

  • With my first, I was able to breastfeed exclusively til 6 months, but when I went back to work, I had a hard time keeping my milk supply...it really tapered off when I started supplementing.

    Knowing more about it than I did before, in large part to this site, I hope to breastfeed exclusively through one year. I work primarily from home though this time around...so hopefully it will go more smoothly.
