    I was BF for 19 months. Older brother for 10 months. Younger brother BF for 18 mths and younger sister for 6/8.

    Whilst we were all BF we do have some differences which could be attributed to the length..

    We are all pretty smart, my younger brother is never sick (talking a possible 5 times in his 16 yrs), older brother is sick a lot (I attribute this to him smoking though), younger sister was sick all the time as a child and still has health issues today. I got sick occasionally but generally healthy.

    The only one of us to struggle with weight is my sister.

    The biggest difference I can see between us is in our personalities... my younger brother and I are very similar, don't smoke/drink, discuss with our parents what we are doing etc. Whereas my sister and older brother have both smoked, snuck out in their teens, among other things and generally rebelled.

    I was bf for 3 months while my mum struggled her guts out to do it, with a huge amount of guilt placed on her by her mum and my father. She gave up after 3 months and put me on formula because she had enough. She said I was a much easier baby after I was on formula, probably because I wasn't hungry all the time. My younger sister was put straight on to formula after my Mum flat out told everyone that this was the way it was going to be and everyone else could shove it! I suffer from hayfever, and my sister doesn't have anything. We had mild childhood asthma, but probably more related to everyone smoking like a chimney when were kids. My sister is a nurse and I am an accountant. We don't suffer any other health issues.

    I was BF for 6 months.

    As a young child I was allergic to eggs and sadly, I never 'grew out of it'. In fact my reaction & sensitivity is worse now that I'm an adult.

    Hubby was CS (thinking gut health here) and FF and he gets sick so much more than me, if the kids are sick he will catch it where as I tend to be fine he will also suffer for a longer period of time, my second who was fed 6 months longer thank oldest suffers the shortest illnesses he can recover from gastro within 12hrs. I also don't suffer from as may colds as DF, I probably get 1 for his 3/4. He suffers hay fever constantly as well.

    My sister and I both exclusively breasted. I have chronic sinus issues, and had eczema as a child. No allergies.

    DH was breastfed and has excellent health.

    I was breast fed untill about 13 months. I projectile vomited after every feed but my ma would just feed me again. (I think due to being lactose intolerant and having coeliac disease that wasn't diagnosed at the time)...

    My little brother was breast fed aswell (less time than me I think) and didn't vomit after feeds (although is lactose intolerant aswell)

    I think we are both pretty intelligent
