One of Christy's posts got me curious. I have been BFing for 10 months now and that's the longest I've nursed. I only made it to 8.5 months with my first. I plan to wean at 1 year with Logan but who knows. For those of you that have BF long term - how long are we talking? At what age do children become not interested in it anymore (I know they are all different)? Is there an age that is too old to BF?
Not that Britney is "nursing" that much. She usually nurses only 3 times a day now and I pump the rest and give it to her through her sippy cup or her solid food but my plan is to stop at a year. I am just hoping she likes milk and makes the transition easily.
I nursed my first son until he was 2 and Maxwell until he was 18 months. I would have nursed him longer but he self weaned . Every child is different if you want to wait till they are ready there is no telling! lol but if you are ready I would start to transition about a year old. Its always about this time where I get tired of always nursing day and night and want my boobies back to! I am not sure how long Milan will nurse, but I think she will go for quite a bit longer!
Mommy to Mason 12 yrs Maxwell 2 yrs & Milan born 12/24/10
My first nursed until 16 months I think. I can't remember. But after about a year, he was getting milk maybe 3 times a day (breakfast, snacktime(4) & bedtime). Then I started encouraging him to wean. It was more for pleasure then nutrition because he wasn't eating a lot
Now I'm pretty sure Kolton is already starting to wean himself He much prefers food. And while he will take boobie milk most times it's just because I offer it.
Thank you to Kiliki for my Siggy
I really has just depended on the kid. Here is how my weaning schedule looks:
#1 = 11 1/2 months self weaned
#2= 11 mos. self weaned just refused one day and was done.
#3/#4 = (twins) nursed 17months and self weaned to cows milk
#5= 12 months and self weaned onhis 1st birthday just stopped.
#6= 3years and weaned due to changing milk composition during my pregnancy
#7= 3 1/2 years and was forced to wean cause I was OVER IT!!! :-(
#8= 10 months and I'm trying really hard to committ tobaby led weaning with her but ...... I want my boobs back....18 yrs since I've worn a "pretty " bra...
