-9. My daughter is 3 yrs. I'm still breastfeeding. I would love to stop but the problem is engorgement. I hate the feeling and I really dont wanna deal with it if i dont have to. I know, I've heard all the advice, skip a feeding, just say no etcetera, but honestly I'm not on a schedule and I just feed her on demand. I figure she'll wean when shes ready.

Quoting savannabooker:

1.      How many of you tried to breastfeed yes 

5.      How many made it to 9 months. Made it to 9 months when he got teeth

10.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you were sabotaged by a health care professional? No my doctor has always supported my decisions as a parent 

I quit breastfeeding when my son got teeth. He went on a nursing strike and my dh would give him a bottle of breast milk. He would eat that way so we stopped nursing and just gave him bottles if breast milk until my milk dried up.

with my first I made it to 6 months, could not continue due to drying up

with my second I made it to 3 months, dried up due to extreme stress

with my third I made it to 12 months, did not continue due to him weening himself

with my fourth, she is 4 months old and still going good

 I breast fed #1 for 4 months. I stopped because I was emotionally a wreck because of an accident that occurred in our family. I was encouraged by our dr. to keep trying, but my body just couldn't produce. Our son started losing weight, so bottle feeding began.

 I breast fed #2 for 3 months. I stopped because I couldn't get him to stop eating. He was hungry 10-12 times a day. I got NOTHING done and had NO time for our older son. He was MUCH happier and fuller with formula.

10.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you were sabotaged by a health care professional? Sort of, once. At 6 mo's I went to work and was having issues with pumping, doctor told me to formula feed while I was at work, my son stopped accepting the breast about 2 weeks in.

11.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you did not continue because of lack of knowledge about breastfeeding? Once (story above)

12.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you did not continue because you felt or were told that it was socially unacceptable? I was told that quite often but never let it bother me..

I breast fed until ds was 18months, his Dr totally supported it. I stopped when I did because he was way more interested in food and I wasnt producing much. Plus we drink raw milk eat real food so I wasnt too concerned with missing nutrien

I breastfed both of mine for 8 months. 

I stopped with the first because she was losing interest.  I stopped with my second because she was never satisfied.
