  • I have been breast feeding for 14mos with my first child. I am in the process of weaning now, so hopefully I will be done by 18mos

  • With my first I made it 4 months and then switched to formula because I was so miserable and he could tell, after that things got better. With my second child it was around 6 months and with my 3rd it was 6 months.

    Good Luck!

  • Only a few weeks, as he kept getting thrush and I didn't want to pass it back and forth, and I couldn't keep up pumping. I hope to do better the next time around.

  • anyone who nursed longer than a year that is disgusting and biologically wrong!!! why do you think babies get teeth and lose their sucking reflex at 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
