    Default What was your goal and how far did you make it?

    My goal with my last was atleast 1 year hoping for 2 but was letting her self wean. I then got bad advice from pharmacist and stopped at 11 months because he said I couldnt with the pain meds after some dental work

    Goal this time is same at least a year

    My goal was at least a year - we've been going for nearly 13 months . I'd like to keep going until 2, but am happy to just see what happens. I don't see either of us being ready to stop any time soon though.

    My goal was 6mths and we made it to 16mths. I found the whole idea of breastfeeding a little "weird" (my breasts had always been "mine"!) when I was pregnant and wasn't sure I would be able to deal with it, but turns out I loved it and so did DD!
