I am doing a research paper (no names will be used) and I need you ladies to answer these questions for me if you would please. If any of you could think of any others that would be awesome as well. I know I am going to get biased answers in this group but thats ok :) I like showing that we are trying to make breastfeeding the norm!!!

1.      How many of you tried to breastfeed

2.      How many of you never tried at all

3.      How many made it to 3 months

4.      How many made it to 6 months

5.      How many made it to 9 months

6.      How many made it to 12 months

7.      How many made it to 18 months

8.      How many made it to 24 months

9.      How many have gone beyond 24 months

10.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you were sabotaged by a health care professional?

11.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you did not continue because of lack of knowledge about breastfeeding?

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?

1.  yes

2.-9.  6 months

10.  Probably.  I got poor advice and little support in the beginning, and ended up pumping until 6 months.  I started with cracked bleeding nipples on day 2 and was told - it is ok to supplement formula and it was just downhill from there for my frist born, 2 years ago.

11.  Probably.  I had a pirana, and now I jsut gave birth to another and my newborn is the same.  We had them checked, not tongue tied, just chewers.  Nipple shields don't help.  Also, low milk supply, probably from missing thyroid and little help first time to increase milk production.

12.  Nope, in fact I feel like it is socially less accepted to not breastfeed - I am embarrassed I am pumping again, but stubborn, so once I heal, going back to BF.  And am insisting on pumping.

6.      How many made it to 12 months - yes

7.      How many made it to 18 months - yes

8.      How many made it to 24 months - no. Almost, but my milk dried up when dd was 23 months due to pregnancy. I was 20 weeks along and we weaned. 

9.      How many have gone beyond 24 months - no

10.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you were sabotaged by a health care professional? - No. I was actually supported

11.  If you did not continue breastfeeding how many of you did not continue because of lack of knowledge about breastfeeding? - no. I considered myself well informed. By this group, in part!

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? - nope. Although after dd turned one, I could definitely see the attitude shift in society. But the older she got, the less it was obvious. With my second, though, I'm a lot more forthright. My second is only 3.5 months. We'll be nursing until at least 2, unless my milk dries up due to pregnancy again.

I breastfed my odd for twenty months (pregnancy hormones changed milk too much for her tastes), and am still going at twenty six months with ydd.  I have not gotten a huge or obvious amount of social support, people ask when I will be done, if I am "still" nursing, etc.  Medical community around here is pretty supportive, and I have a "I won't ask, you don't need to tell me" policy when it comes to breastfeeding advice from most people, doctor or not.

How many worked part-time or full-time while nursing? How many combined formula and breastfeeding? When did you start solids?
