I am still breastfeeding. I have gotten worried lately though since I just went back to work my supply has dwindled. My freezer stash is almost gone and I am not replacing but, in order to save us I am going crazy with the water and taking loads of pills plus I am going to try to pump everytime she eats so that we can make this work. I really would like to make it to a year.

Julia hit a huge nursing strike at 8 months and I struggled from then on to exclusively pump for her. I was able to do it till I got pregnant with Kate (around 12-13 months). I know lots of tips to up supply... so if you ever need anything feel free to PM me.

I have noticed my supply is less at night. Its making her angry thats for sure. I have upped my water intake and I drink some of that mothers milk tea too. It seems to be working. I admit I stress about my supply a lot.

Yes, I'm still nursing, and plan to self-wean. I nursed my now 2 y/o until he was about 15 months, I believe it was.

I plan to nurse as long as possible. My son sort of weaned himself at 10 months. He was done then. He just wanted food food food, and not the boob kind! Cadence I would love to nurse for a year, but of course it depends on if/when I get a job (because I can't, for some reason, pump)...etc.

I'm EBP'ing. I've been doing that since day one. It's been over 4 months and I'm going to try to hold out until 6 months and then wean him off.

I am still nursing but my supply isnt keeping up with the demand. I have to supplement with formula. I plan to nurse or pump as long as I can.

Still EBFing here as well. I'm waiting until her next appointment on Monday and I may start her on some cereal if the doc recommends it, but I plan on nursing her until at least a year unless she is like my son, who pretty much ditched me for a sippy cup around 11 months and never looked back.

I'm fortunate enough to have had good experiences nursing, first with my son, and so far things have been wonderful with Clara!

I EBF for 4 months, and now she's FF'ing, except at night she is still nursing. I BF my first daughter for 11 months. I just feel better as far as being able to get out, and not go crazy from Bf'ing. Especially having two kids, it was harder for me. Now I don't have to worry that she is going to be upset if I leave her with family or DH if I go out for a while.

I am BF plus EBF when I am at work. Things are going well, but I can certainly see my supply drop when I have been off for a couple of days. I love BF, but I have to confess that if I didn't truly believe it was best for Lola, I would stop pumping... I hate it!!
