  • I don't think it is a matter of stop breastfeeding I think it is a matter of nature. Nature will tell you body to stop producing milk eventually. I hear of mothers who breastfeed up to the 2nd year which I would hope to do it with my baby who is almost a year.

  • I breastfed my daughter until she turned 14 months old. I started weaning her at 11 months. I wanted to wean her because I'm pregnant with my son and wanted a break before I had to start nursing again.

  • I breastfed my son for one year and then just cut out one feeding at a time and started giving him regular milk. I had him weaned off in a month and that is only because when I cut out a feeding I did it for a week before I cut out the next. I had no problem with my son. GL :)

  • My daughter just slowly weaned on her own terms until she just stopped completely at 13 months, piece of cake. Now my son is 25 months and still going strong, I thought it would be just as easy with him, but alas, here we are.
