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.

10 days with my first. I tore so badly and then I tried pumping and tore up in other places. And milk slowly dried up in those 10 days.

And I wasn't able to try with my second.

All three of mine were probably six months before we supplimented with formula. Both boys nursed until I weaned them at a year. Dd weaned herself at 18 months.

My first I stopped at 11months because I need to have some test and couldn't nurse for a week after the test(radioactive iodine)
My second I stopped around 9- months because I was working weird hours.
My third was 20months and I was ready to have my body back.
4th is 11weeks and I plan to nurse her until 2yrs.

It is crazy for anyone to be asking you when you are going to stop when she is only four months old! The APA recommends at least 2 years (they used to say a year). I BF DD1 for 14 months, DD2 for 16 months, DS for 17 months and DD3 until she was 3.

A month shy of age 4. She just told me one day that she didn't have time for it anymore, since she was a busy girl. Lol

We breastfed until he was 15 months. Once he started running around he wasn't as interested. I quit offering and he quit asking.

I tried, and gave up after a week or so. Not for me.
