How old were you when you breastfed your first baby?

How old were you when you breastfed your first baby? How much did you really know about breastfeeding when you started?


I was 26 when I nursed my son the first time. I thought I knew a lot about breastfeeding at the time but then quickly realized that I didn't.

I was 21 and knew absolutely nothing except that I wanted to do it. I don't even know what gave me the idea but I was determined! DD nursed for 18 months.

I'm NAK right now and I'm 22. I didn't do any research for anything but have been learning as I go. And the lactation nurses were a big help also.

 I was 31, I did a lot of research before my daughters birth however I feel like with breastfeeding experience it teaches you the most.

I was 23. I knew I was going to nurse my baby and nothing was going to stop me. Other than that...I didn't know a whole lot. But that's all I needed to know to get my stubborn baby to nurse. It took us 2.5 months. I pumped and fed him with a silicone cup after trying to nurse him until he finally got it.

I was 21 when I first breastfed.  I had a lot of insight when I started because I am second oldest of 7 children and my mom breastfed all 7 of us.  I now have three children and still breastfeed my 18 month old even though I am slowly starting to ween him off.  With my first, I only breastfed until he was 9 months and then we he weened himself since I was working full time.  I did pump when I had gone back to work.  With my 2 1/2 year old daughter, I breastfed her until she was 13-14 months and then weened her off so I could have a little break before my youngest was born since they are 17 1/2 months apart.

When she started nursing I was a month away from my 20th birthday. She will be 3 next month, and I'll be 23 the month after. There were things I needed to learn, but we made it this far and are still going. =)
