    Gotcha - jasper still wouldn't have 'qualified' as being exclusive breast fed at 6 months though. He almost exclusively breast fed though! I just couldn't pump enough to leave him on the very very rare occasion I wasn't with him.

    DS2 fed DD a piece of corn when she was about 4 months old?? So I guess that counts her out too lol along with all the water she licks off the floor in the shower

He never had a dummy but he sucked his thumb occasionally (which I thought was sooo cute!) but even if he had a dummy I wouldn't consider that to mean he wasn't exclusively breast fed. He ate food from 6 months and drinks water but I still think he's my ebf baby!

    Hon I totally agree with you! I remember hearing it when dd was a newborn. I can't remember the source sorry. My dd had dummies. No issue with bf, she had water from 4 months as we were in the middle of a heat wave and would only bf with a flannel on her face and sips of water in between. I gave her ebm in bottles as I needed to and she needed solids from 17 weeks. I bf her exclusively until at least 12 months when she started cows milk for cereal etc and self weaned at 14 months. I would of happily fed her until at least 2yrs. I actually wanted to tandem

    I am curious as I am almost 1year BF and I am really tired, I feel like feeding really takes it out of me sometimes. I am going to be weaning soon to ttc but maybe I would have continued otherwise.
    Thanks...
    I agree with the previous posts, I don't think there are any negative effects for you provided you're eating well and staying hydrated and rested (I know rested is the hard one!). But if you're finding it emotionally/psychologically difficult then I guess that's a negative.

    BF for a year is great, so don't feel bad if you feel like it's time to move on.
