Did breastfeeding come naturally for you or did you have to work at it? How long did you or do you plan on nursing for?

I needed help with DD1, with DD2 it was natural, and we'll see with this one.

Both girls were weaned at 15mths for different reasons (Kailey refused part time nursing and I had to go back to work so it was all or none, and Nola and I got thrush bad, my nipples were coming off so I had to stop nursing cold turkey).

I hope to go at least 2yrs this time, we'll see

It was a learning curve for me, my first had latch issues so that was rough, he only ended up nursing until 4 months or so, then i stopped.

My 2nd was much better he took to it great and it was a lot easier, i think i was less overwhelmed and self conscious about nursing anywhere so that helped. I wanted to nurse him for atleast a year (possibly 2) but i got pregnant again and Will refused to nurse after that, so he was 8-8.5 months when he stopped.

Finn is still nursing at almost a year, i want to nurse until hes 2 and then go from there, some days i think id let him nurse until he wanted to self wean and then other days i think 2-2.5 years is my cut off, we will see i guess

For my first we had major issues with latching and with my milk production. He really only ended up nursing for 1 week, and then nursing for about 3 months total after that with supplementing because I still wasn't producing more than 1-2 ounces each day.

With this one I'm hoping and preparing myself as best as possible for a nice easy start! I'd love to go at least 2 years.
