  • I nursed all three of my children. I nursed one for 2 yrs. I nursed the other two for six weeks then put them on milk (son)/formula (youngest dd).

  • Yes, I breastfed exclusively for about 5 months, then breastfed and formula fed for the next few months (with both of my kids). Looking back, I wish I'd made it longer, but I am glad that I breastfed at least as long as I did, so no regrets :-)
