  • Only 3 months because I got very sick & ended up in the hospital for a week. My milk dried up while I was in the hospital because I couldn't pump while I was there (I was in no condition to do so).

  • 12 months, 12 months and 15months.

    I got a LOT of flack for breastfeeding past 3 months from my mom, so I think 12+ months each is pretty good.

  • 15 months with my DD then she self weaned (bc I was pregnant and my milk changed and she did not like it anymore) and about three weeks shy of three years with my DS before he self weaned.

  • four months and loved every minute of it, and woul dhave gone longer but i had to go back to work as husband was unemployed (but he was mean about breastfeeding and unsupportive) so then i pumped at work to give at least one or two breastmilk bottles between her formula she was learning to drink. She was a champion breastfeeder and soooo happy doing it! i loved how it whittled off my pounds ( i am now pre preg size, i just drank a LOT of water and the funny thing i laughed abotu with my sister is that i am now a FULL cup size SMALLER than i was pre pregnancy. I used to be a medium C, now i am a small B!! also, no one ever tells you that after you breastfeed, that hard ring of carilage in your breast disappears, and they are way softer and squeezier afterward. i love all of it so i dont care lol but i noticed. i loved being pregnant but i am 40 now and wont be havign more, got tubes tied. also have a 7 yr old son (adopted!) yay
