  • I BFed my first baby for just over a year, my second for also about a year, then the third for only a few months (she failed to thrive on BF alone and wouldn't take formula so I put her on solids early) then my 4th, 5th and 6th babies I BFed for nearly 3 years each. :D

  • my oldest i did for a year, my second 8 months , my third only for 6 weeks.... i would have nursed her longer but i was put into the hospital and had a very bad infection in my hand from cutting my self while i was doing dishes. so they said i shouldn't nurse her any more because of the strong IV antibiotics that i was getting. i was in the hospital for 6 weeks and well it wouldn't have been easy for someone to bring her back and forth . . . and she couldn't stay with me because i was in the infectious disease ward. So bottle feeding her was the only way at that point :(
