How long did you breastfeed?

not looking for advice, just curious! my first two weaned themselves at 10 months and my 3rd is quite fond of the boob so i know it'll be tough.

  • My goal was to do it until my dd slept through the night. I did it just a little longer... about 3 1/2 - 4 months.

  • 26 months.

    I know you're not looking for advice, but... if you want to continue beyond ten months remember that you nurse before solids all the way to the first birthday. Often too many solids lead to weaning before a year.

  • With the oldest I had to stop at 13months because my body couldn't handle breastfeeding and pregnancy (I was 8mos along).
    With my second 25months
    And I hope to go at least 24+ with this one...

  • You didn't "have to"? What that's mean?
