How long?

How long did you breastfeed your baby? I think I'm going to bf until my son is a year and a half or so, if he wants to.

  • I didn't do a good job with DD#1, and she was totally on formula by 1 month. DD#2 is 10 months old and still BF. I am going to wean her whenever she is ready. She won't drink much out of sippy cups and is a booby loving baby.

  • DD weaned on her own (unexpectedly and out of character for her) at about 14 months. 2 weeks later, I found out I was pregnant, so I suspect that had a lot to do with it. DS is 3, and still nurses at bedtime.

    If you belong to the Breastfeeding Moms group, you would know that ONE DROP makes you a success. That is one of the group mottos. One month is better then not at all! Kudos!
