  • Breastmilk only for 7 1/2 months, then bits of table food for fun at baby's loud insistence. she's 8 1/2 months now. I will nurse as long as she needs. I hope to make it at least a year, then beyond.

  • I breastfed my oldest, but my body couldn't keep up with him, so I supplemented with formula. But the second one breastfed exclusively... Now that I'm pregnant with the third one - I plan to supplement with formula again, mostly because sitters need to be able to feed the baby. I exclusively BFed my middle son though until he was 11 months - then we added solids as well.

  • I breastfed both my kids exclusively until 6 months, then started introducing solids. My DD went on to BF until she was 13 months when she self weaned, and my ds3 is slowly self weaning now, he is 3. Yes, 3 *gasp*.

  • My daughter is 3 months old today and has never had a bottle. I don't plan on ever giving her one. We will wait until she is a year old to introduce solids.

  • I EBF my first for 5 months then slowly started solids. I offered a sippy of water around 7 months and continued to BF until she was nearly 18 months old. I EBF my second for 4.5 months then began offering solids and coninued to BF until he was 10.5 months old. I EBF my third baby for 5 months and just now have started offering her solids. I plan to BF until she is around 15 months old.

  • I plan on EBF my children until they can sit up and grab bites of solid food and eat it. So, whatever age that is closer to age one. They will nurse until they quit on their own. Whatever age that may be.

  • Currently exclusively breastfeeding a 7 week old baby.
    He will start on solids around 6 months, but will continue nursing until he's ready to stop.

  • I breastfed exclusively for 7 months. At 7 months we started solids. We're planning on nursing until 2 years old or until she self weans, whichever happens first.
