Do you know? How long did you nurse?

I was EBF for six months then self weaned when mom introduced solid foods.

ZoeChloeMommy November 20th, 2013 06:17 PM

Nope. My brothers weren't either.

Nope, formula from day one. My mom was scared her boobs would get too big. I was also on solids at 3 weeks old. Yuck, ignorance, misinformed pediatrician.

Breast fed for about 6 weeks.

I was breastfed for a short time. My mom had two babies in 15 months so she was kind of overwhelmed and exhausted. Plus she had thyroid issues after me and PPD so she gave up.

The reason she wasn't that big of a support for me when I said I wanted to breastfeed my 3rd child was she thought all of her issues were related to breastfeeding. :(

Yes! I was breastfed for about 1.5 years! It is a big reason why I wanted to breastfeed my kids :)

I was breastfed for a few weeks, but then mom had to go back to work full-time and couldn't manage it anymore.

I was breastfed until I started biting my mom's nipples. LOL! So she weaned me when I was about 18 months old.

Re: Were you breastfed?
 
I was not! I joke and say it's because I was 10 pounds when I was born and my mom was afraid I'd take her whole breast off.
But uhm...not really sure why I wasn't breastfed. I can't remember if my sister was (I'm the oldest). But I know my little brother had a mix of both.

I was for around 2 months. I am really not sure if it was that long after talking to my grandmother. My kids have all had lots of boobs!

My mom breastfed me for about 3 months. My dad always told me it wasnt long enough and he told me to "please try for at LEAST 6 months" haha. Well I made it to 28 months :D

I was FF from the beginning. The pediatrician told my mom it was better and she was a FTM trying to do the right thing. :rollseyes: My younger brother was BF, but I'm not sure for how long.

Re: Were you breastfed?
 
I just want to add, all of us in the family have been breastfed. Way back from my great great grandmother. Really made a difference than if we were just bottle fed. :)
