  • 9 months. But I had so much supply that she is still getting frozen milk and she is almost 13 months now.

  • Lily until 5 mths and Valerie until 3 1/2 mths. I struggled with producing milk though. I would have done longer, but I also admit that I struggled emotionally on the days that she wanted to nurse all day and I was ready to have my boobs go back to normal.

  • I nursed my son till he was 16 months old. I was only nursing once or twice by then and it was more for comfort than really getting any milk out. We both I think were ok with stopping then.

  • My children are exclusively breastfed (no other liquids or solids)for their first year and child-led wean in their later toddler years. The WHO recommends two years MINIMUM breastfeeding. Each year of bf decreases the risk of diseases and cancers for both mom and it is EBF and CLW for us!

  • One full year. I stopped producing - otherwise i would have gone to 18 months or even age 2. I hope to go much longer with my next baby.
