  • With DS1 it was 18 months and DS2 we are 6 months and still going strong. I agree with aeneva about doing what is right for you and your baby and don't listen to anyone else around you. Oh, Cochies, 3 years isn't too long if it is what you and your child wanted.

  • dd1, i pumped for a month... i was ill informed and not supported. dd2, i nursed her for 2 years. i was very informed, with a bit more support. this next one, i am very informed, and i have support, but i'm single now... so i really HOPE to go at LEAST 2 years... pumping while at work, nursing while at home.

  • When they self weaned. First was around 18 months and he said it tasted yucky because it had changed to colostrum due to pregnancy. With second it was 35 months. Do what feels right for you and your family and don't let any one push into doing anything you don't feel is right.
