What is or was your breastfeeding goal?


Mine is to breastfeed as long as my daughter wants.

2 years minimum. I've made it once now out of four kids. Hoping my 5th will go past 2.

This is my first and I'm determined to make it to at least a year and then see how it goes from there.

 Mine was to breast-feed for the whole first year, which I did. I would have gone longer but my daughter self weaned right at a year.. It was weird ? Lol ... This time I'm actually hoping to go past a year with DS. But I've got a while before he's here lol

2 yrs at the minimum :). This is my first baby I've bf'd past 4 wks, and we are at 7.5 mths now with no signs of stopping ANY time soon. I'm pretty proud.

At first it was 12 months, then 18 months, and finally 2 years. I have met and exceeded all of those goals. Not sure how much longer she will go for. If she could, she would nurse all day long every 1-2 hours!

My goals changed a lot LOL 

My first daughter, I said I'd nurse her to 6 months. Then I said a year. At a year, I realized that there was no difference between day 364 and 365. She weaned at 17 months 

My twin boys, I knew I'd nurse past a year, but wean at 18 months. My boys didn't get the memo because they nursed to 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 LOL

I had a few.  My first goal was 3 months, now it's 6 months then it will be at least a year.  

We will see after that.

At least one year, preferably two and then as long as she wanted after that. We made it to 18 months. I hate to say I had had enough. She was still waking all night to nurse and I was a grumpy mommy.

When I had DS, I planned on a year. When he was about 5 months old and I had learned more about BFing, I decided to go a least 2 years. When we get to 2 years in August, my goal from there is to let him self-wean...though I would like to tandem nurse for a while at least when # 2 arrives in laye September/ early October. :-)
