I stopped just short of 13 months. EBM feeds for the majority of that time.
I was married to my breast pump!

I weaned DS(without much complaints) at 21 months we had both had gastro and I was 20 weeks pregnant working full time and didn't have the energy to rebuild my supply so decided that was the end. I would probably be tandem feeding now if that hadn't happened. I don't know how long I'll feed DD for

I stopped feeding DD (reluctantly) at about 10 months due to me going back to work FT & my supply dropping significantly. I wanted to continue till DD was at least 12 months and had a big cry over it when I had to stop.

14 months. I had switched the bedtime feed to formula then cow's milk around 12 months and he maintained the morning feed until 14 months when he refused two mornings in a row so I didn't offer again.

My bub is 6.5 months and we're still going strong. I'll be back to work when bubs 10 months and will express for day feeds until bub is 12 months. Will then give just morning and night bf's until whenever (18-24 months or whenever one/both of us get the $hits with it).

I weaned DS at eight months for my own sanity and comfort.
I really wanted my body back, and he had six VERY sharp teeth he liked to chew with, so that was it

I weaned dd2 at 9 months to go on meds to ovulate and ttc #3, I weaned DS at 10 months when he kept biting me at every feed :-(
I'm not sure how long I'll bf #4 for.. I'd like to feed for at least 12 months but know that by then I'll be well and truly ready to have my body back, on the other hand, this will be our last bub so think I may have a hard time letting go :-(
Once this bub is weaned (at 12 months for example) I would have been pregnant or breastfeeding for most of the last 6 years..

DS1 self weaned at 19 months, which was perfect for me as I was 7 months pregnant and had had more than enough by that stage, but felt guilty to wean him
