  • I nursed both of mine for 2 plus years. I worked full time from the time my dd was seven weeks old up until she was about 6 months old. I had a pump and pumped at work and my daughter also reverse cycled some, meaning she would nurse while she was physically with me during the night (we co slept so it was pretty easy) I'm really glad I nursed mine for so long. My dd is now seven and is very healthy and has only missed one day of school total. My son is in kindergarten and only missed a day too though not because he was sick, he needed surgery to have pins removed from his broken arm.

  • I nursed for 18 1/2 months, though I wish I had gone longer. I plan to go at least 2 years with the next one.
