I had 4 babies and breastfed 12-14 months with 3 of them. With my first I couldn't produce enough milk so supplemented with formula at 4-5 months.

I breastfed until 11 months and then had enough pumped milk saved that I was able to give breastmilk until a year when we transitioned to regular milk.

With my first I breastfed, and gave him pumped breast milk until he was two. I am currently breastfeeding my my 7 month old, and will probably stop at a year. I have enough in the freezer that it will make it through 18 months if supplemented with baby food.

Well with my 1st I breastfed almost 10 months. With my second one I will breastfeed longer hopefully

I only breastfeed until I had to go back to work. I wanted to make it easier on myself and the babysitter to not rely on me.

15 months with my 1st and I’m eager to see how long with my second.

6 months only I wasn’t as lucky with milk supply.

Breastfed my first for a year and the second for about 9 months then fed him pumped milk till about the 11th month

Due to unintended bottle preference caused by husband's sweet intentions, I had to switch to exclusively pumping at 3 days. I've been giving her breastmilk for 19 months now with the goal of 2 years. 😊

Not less than 6 month

If my milk supply is still available when baby is 2, then I'll breastfeed till then. Funny story: When I was in grad school, one of my classmates told me she was breastfed till she was 7 years. That she and her brother would come back home from school, and their mother would feed them; she would take one breast, and her brother would take the other. Not sure how true her story was. Who knows, it might have been true, because she was from a different culture.

I had 2 babies. I EBF both. The first until 1 and the second until 3 years old. It was a different because with the oldest I started pumping so I could work at 4 weeks so he could have a bottle but I nursed when I was home. It was so much work that at a year I was ready to be done. With my second I stayed home and he never took a bottle, it was easier to EBF with no pumping, in my opinion.

Have two beautiful babies and they are 15 month apart. I breast feed my first for 9month and the second 12 months... breastfeeding is a gift if you can do it I encourage you maximize as much as you can.

I’m going on four months of pumping. At three months I stopped producing as much so I used up all my freezer stash and now doing half formula half milk until I can get it up again

I wasn't successful with my first, but I made it 6 months with my youngest (although we had to start supplementing when she was a few days old).

2.5 years..but then was happy that my kid weaned off on his own.

I only breastfed my son for about three months, but my daughter just passed her first birthday and she is still being breastfed.

I fed my first two sons until around 14 months and then my current son is 8 months and going strong.

I’m currently at 19 months with my son and plan on letting him ween himself 😊 

Becky posted this 16 June 2019

I currently am still breastfeeding my 15 month old. I am not sure when I will be weaning, as he still uses boob for nap times/bedtimes. My ultimate goal was 1 year, and am happy to have surpassed it!
