I formula fed my daughter, who is now 10 years. I now breastfeed and formula feed my son, who will be 10 months.

I breastfed Julia until she did a nursing strike at 10 months. I didn't know what to do at the time and gave up after trying for 3 weeks. It broke my heart to go from 6 times a day to 0.

I breastfed chelsey until about 22 months. She also had a nursing strike at 10 months, but I knew better and had her back on in about 3 days. Little stinkers. :)

I desperately wanted to BF DS1. He wouldn't latch and was starving so we switched at 3 days old. Knowing what I know now I probably could have worked throught it but alas...

DS2 and DD were both BF until 6 months old.

The older 2 breastfed for about 3-4 weeks until I went back to work...I never could pump enough so we switched over to formula.  The youngest BF for about 5 months and she stopped :(. I really wanted to keep going since I stopped working after I had her, but she had other plans apparently.

Both. I am not able to maintain a supply for very long, even with taking Mother's Milk Tea, Fenugreek, etc. I nursed DS#1 for 4 months and with DS#2 we lasted 6 months.
