I wanted to go 2 years like with my first.

But Ivy is not a content nurser. She wiggles and squirms and fusses. If her eating behaviors don't adjust, I will likely definitely slowly wean once she hits 1 year.

The way she frustrates me, though, every day is a challenge, so who knows if I'll throw in the towel sooner. I don't want to, but eventually my sanity may just snap.

I would like to go one year like I did with Autumn, but I don't think I'll make it that long. I've figured out that I hate pumping. Since I'll be back at work in 2.5 weeks, I'll probably be supplementing soon unless I manage to get my pumping on track. I'll have to see how long my supply lasts nursing on weekends and evenings/nights. I'll go as long as theres milk

As long as I can. I'll be working full-time come March. I'll pump but with my over-active lipase issue, I'm not sure that it'll be enough and will probably have to supplement. I'm going to try to figure out a way to EBF/P until she's at least 6 months, and then go as long as my supply holds out. I BF Jack for 27 months.

At least a year and then I start to not offer as often and give a cup of bm at meal times. The boys were okay with that,but my daughter wanted nothing to do with that and up sed until 18/19 months, so we'll see how things go.
