Any Mom's planning to breastfeed up to 15-18 months?

I am a mother who finds breast milk very nutritious for our babies. and plan to nurse up to 18 months. Anyone else?

  • I breastfed dd for 2.5 years and am currently breastfeeding dd2 who is 19 months. I breastfeed in public, no problem.

  • With my oldest I had to stop at 13 months because I was so hugely pregnant with #2. But I nursed him for 25 months and plan to do the same with this one...

  • I honestly don't enjoy BF enough to go that long. My son is 2 months and I'll try my best to stick it out the year. That will most likely be it for me.

  • That's good to know that I am supported. Lol in public I get nervous, or shy mainly about what others might think. But I bet more Mom's are for nursing then against it. Thank you for the support.

  • I planned on it, but it didn't end up that way. My oldest is an A student and was only breastfed part time for 3 months...

  • I nursed my oldest until almost 16 months and then she just weaned herself. The middle two I barely made it to 6 months, and the younger was less than that.
