    Default When did you stop breast feeding?

    Hi ladies... I'm 2 months in & hoping to go for as long as I can. Just wondering how long you breast fed for?? What age & how many feeds were you doing before you stopped??

    Twelve months and five days. At ten months I weaned him from three feeds to two, then about 4-6weeks later I weaned him down to one feed a day.

    At about 13wks due to food intolerances and failure to thrive. DD went onto a prescription formula.

    We're TTC#2 and I hope to BF again but won't put another bub through what DD went through if we get another one with intolerances.

    Just before my sons 1st birthday he was fighting me Everytime I would try and attach him, kicking screaming and biting ensued, he was already on formula 1-2 feeds a day to help him gain some weight so it wasn't a hard transition.
    I'm glad I made it to the 12 months I wanted though
