How long will you BF or give formula for?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I get so many crazy reactions when I say I hope Zack nurses till he's 2. I plan to go by his lead and let him wean on his own. If around 18 months we need to wean to just morning and nights but I'll play it by ear when that time comes. Hailey weaned at 13 months and neither of us were ready. (She weaned because of my pg with Zack).

If I had not gotten pregnant with Rory I would have nursed Alex until he was about 2 (or before if he self-weaned). There are a ton of benefits, not least of all the lovely cuddles and bonding. It was so hard to tell him "no" when he asked to nurse because it hurt too much

I had planned on stopping pumping last month for Rory because it was just getting to be too much. I dropped down to 4 pumps and as a result he is now getting 50/50 formula and breastmilk. I wanted to make sure I had breastmilk available for surgeries and then his g-tube insertion got cancelled so here I am, still pumping, lol.

Breastmilk is considered a clear fluid so your LO can eat it up until 4 hours before the procedure, whereas with formula it's 8 hours. I can't stand the idea of him going hungry for so long.

Yeah I think my supply and the taste were what caused Hailey to wean. It was a month after I found out I was pg and she all the sudden didn't want to nurse. It took her a full month to really start drinking cows milk too. I should have given her the pumped milk that I still had but totally forgot about it till I was dumping all of it after I had zack. (It had been in the freezer for a year at that point).

I guess I'll go as long as he wants or I'm able. With Fiona - due to work and stress and latch issues - we only managed a couple of months. So I'm in new territory breastfeeding Finn for almost 7 months now. I know I want to go at least one year, but I'd be fine going longer than that.

I plan on BFing and pumping for a year. I hate pumping so much that I don't want to pump past a year. I will let Morgan self-wean as far as nursing goes.
