How old was your LO when you stopped BFing?

Posted by   + Show Post

So i have two questions. 
1) At what age did you stop breastfeeding 
2) How did your baby let you know they were ready to stop breastfeeding? 

I keep getting asked when im going to stop breastfeeding, my DD is approaching nearly 4 months but neither me or her are ready to stop yet. I was thinking about a year old. Just wondering if your baby let you know or if you just decided to stop.

I have 4 children. The earliest I stopped was 9 months and the latest was 2.

Ds1 nursed till he was 14 months, the last 2 months he was only nursing at night he eventually just stopped waking up for it. Ds2 is 6 months and still going strong. My goal is always to make it a year then let them decide past that.

DD is 13 1/2 months and doesn't seem to be done.  She nurses overnight, tho, so I am ready to wean whenever she is :)  Or I just can't take it any more.  I was shooting for a year and I got that - everything after that is golden. :P

My oldest nursed for 18.5 months but I'm sure she would've gone longer had I had not had terrible morning sickness.  I'm currently nursing my 6 month old.

14 months and 2. My 14 month old just said night night and went to his bed inside of mine to nurse. he was down to one feeding a day right before bed. My 2 year old did the same.

She's two and a half and still nursing. Definitely wouldn't have stopped prior to a year.
