15-18 months old. The last 4 of them anyway.

I struggled with milk production with my first 3, and switched to formula at 6 months with them.

My last 4, I was determined to exclusively breastfeed. I drank lots of liquids, took fenugreek, ate oatmeal, and used (LOL) my encapsulated placenta (for the last 2), and was able to successfully breastfeed them until 15-18 months old. Weaning a month before the next was born (mainly because I don't produce enough milk for two).


How long did you nurse your babies?

2 years with my youngest. The last 6 months only my left side produced because that's the side that was the most comfortable for me when holding her.

I nursed my son until he was about a year old. I quit bc I got an infection and it was painful to nurse and the doctor recommended I stop bc the infection was not going away.

I have a broken boobie and it took me struggling nursing a few to figure that out..lol. I figured it out with baby #4 and fed exclusively with the side that works. That worked out great, but he self weaned at 10 months. : (
