Just wondering. Do you know if you were or not? Do you know how long, if so?

I believe I was breast fed up to one year but not exclusively. Good question!

Yup but I weaned myself at 8 months, much to my mother's disappointment.

I was completely formula fed, although I think I had to have a special kind of formula because I had some sort of allergy or intolerance to milk as a baby. I also had colic. My poor parents lol.

I know I was breastfed but not sure how long. I'll have to consult my mother and get back to you on that one.

I was exclusively breastfed, never had a drop of formula! I went straight onto cows milk in a sippy cup around 1 year. So sad I wasn't able to do the same amazing job for my baby . But I suppose six months exclusive inst too bad!

I was BF'd for 3 months, my mom wasn't producing enough milk though and I was hungry all the time and not gaining weight properly, so I was put on formula until 6 months. After that, I think I was on cows milk........

I was 100% formula fed. Than at 3 months it was discovered I had dislocated hips for I was in casts for bit than braces. That's not the question, I just threw it in!

I was for a short time. My mom ended up with some kind of infection or mastitis real bad or something. I know she said she was disappointed about that. She breastfed my brother and sister (I'm the youngest of three) until they were at least 6 months.

I think my mom said I was breastfed until about 8 months when she switched me to soy formula, and I did better on that. She said everything she ate bothered my tummy and I was a horrible sleeper. Hah, sounds like my kids.

Much like Elly, my mom developed massive infections that they had to treat with steroids, so she stopped. I was such a sleepy baby she couldn't wake me to nurse long enough, so she engorged very badly and didn't know what to do for it (didn't have a pump). By the time she went to the doc (5-6 days after I was born), she had to be put on powerful painkillers and decided to put me on formula. I was also only on it for 6 months before we got cows milk.

Sadly, my mother was so afraid she would have a similar experience with my immediately younger brother, she didn't nurse him at all. But ended up going through the same thing anyway (a little less intensely, since they gave meds to help dry the milk right away). But she did decide to try to nurse my youngest brother, since she didn't avoid the infections anyway, and he nursed for 13 months before stopping on his own.

I was until I weaned myself at 10 months, then apparently went straight to cups. My mom is now a nurse and specializes in breastfeeding, so it's kind of cool that breastfeeding has worked out for me this time - my daughter flat out refused to latch, which broke my heart.

Yes I asked my mom this recently. She nursed her first two for 3 months and third for 6 months. I was her first.

I was breast fed until 6 months +\- and then on whole milk. I guess they did things a little different in 1980.
