How long do you plan on breastfeeding? Do you plan on ever going to JUST formula? Or will you BF 'till baby weans?

i don't really know yet. since i really wanted to EBF the twins for 6 months & things didn't work out like that & i was DEVASTED, i decided to set minigoals for myself when it came to knox. originally it was 6wks, then 3 months, now 6 months. i am still scared of the teething thing, but a lot of people say it isn't that bad.

part of me wants to call it quits once a week - it's easier to control the toddlers when baby is on a bottle as opposed to at breast. but then there are times i look at him & think i never want to stop ♥♥

I too am setting mini goals. I really wanted to EBF Michael too - but I am happy now with the partial supplementing.

My first was 3 months, and I made it! So, now I'm aiming for 6 months. I pump too since I work. I only get a chance to BF him about 2-3 times a day during the week.

I would LOVE to go until 9 months.... but if I make it to 6 months, I'll be thrilled!

BFing with Liam only lasted about a month and a half so I've been doing the mini-goals with Colin, too. Basically each month I last is another goal met! I planned on BFing for 6 months but we'll see what happens when/if I get there!

I wanted to BF for an entire year, but as of right now it isn't looking like that's going to happen. We just struggle so much and now my supply is down again (I was sick with pneumonia).
