Who's still BFing? We are!
How often? Logan usually BFs 3 times during the day and once during the night.
New goals? My originial goal was always 1 year. So I'm glad we made it to that. He loves it so much I hate to stop. We have started giving him bottles so maybe weaning is in the near future. His appt with the allergist is Feb 6. I definitely want to make to until then.

Who's still BFing? ***raises hand***

How often? First thing in the morning, most days at lunch, sometimes after work and before Natalie goes to bed, so 3-4 times. Sometimes it's more like a quick drink or a snack than an actual nurse.

New goals? I don't know. I don't think I had any real goals when starting out and no end date in mind. I love not pumping anymore although I really miss all the reading I did while pumping. I actually took my pump home Friday night but forgot all the pump parts at work and didn't discover I had until I was packing away the clean bottles Sunday night. I'm just following Natalie's lead and she can nurse as long as she wants. She loves the sippy cup and eating like a big kid. I'll miss nursing but will love the extra sleep in the morning.

I stopped pumping on 12/1. The supply just died on me.

How often? First thing in the morning, before each nap, and before bed. She gets 2 bottles when I'm away at work, 1/2 breastmilk, 1/2 formula.

New goals? I'd like to keep nursing awhile longer but I want to stop pumping. I'd like to get to where she has whole milk during the day when I'm gone but I still nurse her at night and in the morning. I didn't really do that with my other kids so not sure how my supply will hold up without the pumping. I am TIRED of pumping but I still really love nursing.

My goal is to get my boobs back.

I'm doing half and half (half cows, and half EBM) - no more breastfeeding, stopped that at 11 months. I am pumping 2x a day now - instead of my initial 5x a day!!! It feels good not to bring my pump to work!

Good going mommas that are still BFing! You are rockstars!

With mixed feelings, I stopped a week ago. She wasn't nursing anymore (she actually stopped that about a month ago). If she still wanted to nurse, I would have done it for a lot longer but my original goal was 1 year (that's what I did for my other kids) and I was resenting the pumping.

We are nursing!! Quinn nurses before bed and through the night at the all night boobie buffet!! She also sometimes nurses in the afternoon. I give her milk in a soppy cup throughout the day. I am still loving nursing and don't see an end. I would love if she slept more at night but she gets in a few key feedings so I am not going to push it.

How often? 3-4 times a day and once at night.
New goals? No, just going with the flow.

I am still breastfeeding. In the morning and before bed, and sometimes at night he'll wake and comfort nurse back to sleep (we co-sleep)

Otherwise he drinks whole milk during the day from his sippy.

We are! When I am home Lola nurses whenever she pleases which ranges from a few times a day to a few times an hour. I still pump once at work so she can get one bottle of breast milk a day while I am at work. I would like to stop pumping ASAP but worry about how that will effect my supply so I think I will pump until March or April...
I want her to nurse until she is ready to stop which I hope doesn't happen too soon
