My first child 1 month. 2nd child bf for 1 year. 3rd child zero.

Can't remember when my other two slept through the night but the 2nd kept crying many times at night coz she's breasfed. She gets hungry a lot more. My third child slept through the night when he was 3 month old.

22 months.
She slept thru at 2 months.
Stay hydrated. Pump and save. Be patient, w yourself and your lo. (Some days are harder than others). Don't be afraid to NIP. Enjoy it. It ends before you know it.

She slept through the night (6 hrs counts as full night) roughly around 2 years old.  She had times before that but not consistently.  She was an extended nurser as well.   She is elementary age now and seems to be the best sleeper out of all her cousins.  We never coslept and tried to keep a consistent bedtime routine.

I personally stopped at 15 months when she bit my nipple off. What was awful about that was I didn't realize she'd bit it off like that until she started choking on the piece of my nipple and threw up the blood she'd been feasting on. She'd already been nibbling for a while and laughing when i gasped in pain. That was the last straw.

My oldest self-weaned. I remembering trying to get her to feed around seventeen months and she just squirmed away and held her arms out towards the upper cabinet where we kept the sippy cups. My second will be two in a month. He wouldn't breastfeed, so I had to pump. I'll probably stop giving him breastmilk after his birthday. He mostly drinks water, anyway. He likes yogurt, but I don't make breastmilk yogurt, so he's pretty much been on cow's milk awhile.

My oldest slept through the night at four days. My second was bad. He woke every three hours expecting to be cared for. He still wakes up in the middle of the night unless I let him stay up late. My baby, I don't know probably around six weeks.

I went about 3 months with my first and a little over a year with my 2nd.
I did it bc it is best but, did not find it pleasurable to the point of extending it.
In the beginning I went through the cracked nipples...not getting more than 2 oz at a time when I pumped...and then he became a squirmy infant....but there were times when it was sweet.
