How many TOTAL months have you breastfed? - Page 8

post #141 of 335

I am pretty impressed with myself that I am still bf'ing my 19 month old, but jeez...  Seems kind of pointless to brag about it on this thread redface.gif.

156 months (three kids), 42 of those months were tandem. Yikes.

56 months, 41 of those have been tandem (twins). We're now weaning, so the final count will probably be 57!
post #144 of 335

24 + 12 months and counting = 36 months = 3 years

 

And before I nursed my dd the thought of nursing didn't even occur to me.  I'm so glad it was assumed by the midwife and hospital staff.

DS1: 28 months

DS 2: is 5 months old...will probably nurse longer then DS1

 

so 33 months so far.....getting close to 3 years!clap.gif

post #146 of 335

19 + 30 + 28 = 77 months

 

before having my first child, i was hoping to manage "at least 4 months" since it had just become compulsory, where i live, for companies to write on powdered milk tins that breasfeeding is best for the first 4 months of life ... am so glad I managed as much , met LLL people, learned and enjoyed so much about breasfeeding.

 

only drawback = i thought i was protected against breast cancer because of my extended breasfeeding

so i did feel a bit let down when i was diagnosed  ...

33 + 26 = 59  #3 is due in October.  I am so excited to add to the number. 

post #148 of 335

I've got 43+19 = 62 and counting.

I'm starting to feel a little long in the tooth with DD, but don't really know how I would like to push the weaning a little bit, so continue we do until I figure that one out. 

I've been tandem nursing dd and ds for the past 19 months, and am hoping to get pregnant at some point in the next few months. No idea what that will do to breastfeeding relationships, but my supply tanks pretty much right away. DD is *committed*, so pregnancy didn't stop her, but I wonder about ds. We'll see, I guess. I hope!

59 and counting!  (22 of them have been tandem nursing months...and counting)

19+23+8 (and counting) = 52 (and counting)

 

ETA: First 3 of those were EP, 10 while pregnant (never again!), and I don't consider us tandeming but the older two still take a sip now and then.

19 months with the first, 30 months with the second, so 49 months!  :)

At least 102 but I lose track of all the times when someone started back up again for a bit. :)

Nineteen months is terrific.

Every breastfeeding mom faces different challenges (the baby's feeding affects sleep, support, work challenges, etc. etc.). The fact that there are moms here who have breastfed longer than you takes nothing away from your accomplishment! While I wish I'd breastfed ds1 longer than I did, I'm still proud of our 10-11 months. I'm proud of the 21 months with dd1, because that was the hardest of them all (she was the squirreliest breastfeeding baby ever). I'm not particularly proud of the 37 months with dd2, because I've been trying to gently wean ("don't offer, don't refuse") for months! They're all different. Take your bows, mama!

86 months and still going......3 kids....

post #159 of 335

5 kids, a total of 13 years, 13x12=156 months

post #160 of 335
92 months and counting.

Or to put it another way...

72 (ish) + 40

I can't really remember when dd1 weaned. She weaned--reluctantly--somewhere around age 6. Both my girls have been big comfort nursers, so I don't expect dd2 to stop anytime soon.

I work outside the home.
