  • My oldest was formula fed and my younger two were breastfed until they were over 2. My daughter stopped at 2 1/2 and my son weaned right after he turned 2.

  • Two of mine were around 23 months, and one who had developmental delays/problems was closer to 3.

  • # 1 was about 3-4 months part time.
    #2 was full time for about 6 months then started supplementing and went on until 9 months when I started to dry up. I had to pump at work and it stopped working and she began to start not get enough either, she even stopped growing. It was sad to stop.
