Hello ladies... When did you stop or started to wean your little ones from br___tfeeding?

My oldest was daytime weaned at about 10 1/2 months because he was constantly getting down and trying to walk around while still attached (OWW)! I weaned him from the bedtime feed at 11 1/2 months. I started weaning my daughter (2nd) at about 8 months because I was pregnant and having some cramping when she would nurse. I finally got her to take a bottle at 9 months! And my 3rd nursed until he was 12 months... then I daytime weaned him, but still nursed him at bedtime until 13 months.

We went down to one night time feeding at 12 months then dropped that at 14 months. I was sick one night and didin't have it in me to nurse so I gave ds his bath and put him to bed and that was the end for us.

I just weaned Trevor, and he'll be 8 months in a week.

My first two ds were both past 2 years,I don't want to give the age due to people's opinion on not agreeing with me on how long I b___stfeed for. I am sure my last will be the same,to put it mildly it was still they self weaned.

My son is 10 months old and I am still going strong with nursing and plan on nursing for quite a while. I would like to start trying to get pregnant at the end of this year so I'll probably quit around september or november of this year.

I nurse my dd now and she is 6 months. I would like to nurse until she is around a year old and then maybe hang on to the nighttime nursing for a while. Lisastar, don't worry, my sister and cousin were also nursed for quite a while. Personally, I think nursing is great and the longer you are willing to do it, the better for everyone! In other parts of the world, it is the norm to nurse for three or four years.

I'm planning on bf until he's about a year old. Right now he is coming onto 9 mos - nursing 3 times a day and countless times at night;) Does anyone know of any benefits of bf past a year?

The AAP says that one year minimum is good but longer is better. I think it helps combat allergies, and boost the immune system in the baby and it combats b___st cancer and osteoporosis in the mama!

I b___stfed my first dd a little past the age of 2 and I am currently "gently" weaning my 18m dd.
