I breastfed my youngest for 15 months, but I really dont think I could do it after 2 years. That's just me personally, though.

I don't think I'd go past 2 years.

I nursed #1 till 11.5 months when my supply dropped over night due to pregnancy.

I nursed #2 to 15 months.

I voted for the child I breastfed the longest; my youngest, who nursed until 32 months. The older one I weaned at 16 months when a friend said, "Don't you think it's time you stopped?" and I DIDN'T think. Dumb me!

I don't have an option.  I breastfed for 6 weeks and then FF out of necessity.  I WOULD have breastfed until he no longer wanted to.

I only breastfed for 3 1/2 months. I wanted to for 12 months but I couldnt due to work and not being able to pump at all during my 9 hr shift. I started getting really bad infections and it was very painful!

 I breast fed my son until he was 2 1/2 yrs old. My daughter is 2 1/2 yrs old now and she still nurses.

i tried to breastfeed with my first kid but she would only take one boob causing one to get over filled. I tried to pump but i had the manual pump and couldn afford the machine. I do plan on breastfeeding my baby due in jan. Going to try for the first 6 months but if i cant go that long i want atleast the first 2 months. Its pretty busy in my house with 5 kids from ages 8 to 4. With husband working one week and off one week i really dont have much help while he is gone.
