My mom passed about 9 years ago, so I am going off what my dad remembers and my baby book.

Apparently my mom nursed me for 2 weeks. Then 2 nights in a row, I kept them up all night. So the next day they fed me Similac. After that I slept through the night, and according to Mom, I "loved" Similac.

I sucked my thumb until I was 9 and seemed to always have oral fixations. I was pretty healthy, never really sick except one time when I was about 5 years old during the winter. I probably had a flu shot that week. No one left to ask

I was formula fed and I sucked my thumb, but so does my bf little girl. I was rarely sick, fortunately.

Breastfed til I self weaned at two, but I wasn't EBF. I think I had water, and started solids "on schedule" (whatever that meant in the 80s). I"ve never had an ear infection or allergies, and I'm rarely sick. Never sucked my thumb, and refused a bottle and paci, much to my mother's chagrin.

I was FF and given solids starting at 8 wks...yuck.
My mom was misinformed about BF and really advocates for me and Finn now!

Oh yeah-I had pnemonia when I was 4 really badly, but didn't get much worse than chicken pox the rest of my childhood.

I was breastfed until I was about 2.

My mom had never even seen a baby nurse before she had me and a nurse at the hospital told her I would suffocate at the breast. Thank goodness she was determined and didn't run into any major problems.

I was ff the main reason starts with the birth of my older brother (8years older) when my mom got pg with him she was 18 and single back then were we live she was shunned because of it. When she had my half brother the dr who deleiverd him beleived in bfing and wouldnt allow any of his patiencts to ff. My moms nerves were extremely bad. She would have catatonic episodes. She did bfeed my brother till he was just past 7mo but she was going down hill fast 5'3 and just a little over 100 pds she lost down to around 80pds. So the dr she was seeing decided that it would be best all around to put him on formula. He almost died that night from a allergic reation to it tho. Anyway they worked till they found a "safe formula".

So when I was born she just put me on formula figuring that she would do like she did with my brother even tho her cercumstances were very different. So both me and my younger brother were 100% ff. Other than my youngest brothers congenital heart defect we have both been pretty healthy altho i do now suffer from major seasonal allergies.

Wow that turned into a novel sorry

I was bf'd until about 7 months mother said she had enough when I started biting her. She said the doc told her I was big enough to have whole milk and since she stared rice cereal at 4 weeks she couldnt quite remember ( I was the oldest of 4) but she thought I was on table food at the time. I guess I was a pro . Considering she had just turned 18 when I was born in '67 I guess that wasnt bad.

She got pregnant w/ my brother 2 months later.

My older brother and I were both formula fed from the beginning. The doctor gave my mom a shot to dry up her milk, kind of without her consent. definitely without her informed consent! SHe did breastfeed my younger sister for 9 months. my little sister was born 5.5 years after me so I guess policy had changed by then. My aunt and grandmother did not breastfeed, so i'm sure it was hard for her not having any real support.

I was born totally unmedicated though mom almost had me in the car.

and I EBF'ed all three of my kids.

My mom was on medication for her asthma (she has had it pretty severely since she was an infant) and was told that she could not bf so my brother and I we were both ff from the start. When my second brother came along 11 years after my 1st brother the nurses told her that the meds were safe to bf with (same meds too : ) so she did nurse my littlest brother for a couple months. We are all fairly healthy despite this but my mom is sad that she was misinformed with her first 2 kids. She is slowly becoming a great bf advocate though

I was formula fed from day one. In the late '70's, women were not encouraged to breastfeed. On the contrary, they were told that formula was BETTER for the baby than breastmilk! My mother tried to breastfeed me, but had no one to help, was discouraged by the nurses and my father, and never heard of LLL, so that lasted less than 2 days.

I, however, got great support (from my mom, too!), had access to lactation consultants in the hospital, went to LLL, read up, have a supportive DH, and have been nursing my son for 16 months. He has never had a bottle, not even of expressed breastmilk.

I always thought I was exclusively BFed but I found out recently that I used to get a few onces of formula at night during growth spurts until my mom's milk "caught up" with me. Why they didn't just let me keep nursing, I don't know. I'm guessing they were going by the clock. "OK, she's been on the breast 10 minutes and she's still hungry - give her some formula."

I was breastfed till 15 months, though, because I was a preemie and I was so small still. My brother and sister were each breastfed to 12 months.

I was ff. I was also hospitalized for like 3 months after birth and essentially seperated from my mother.
Even if that hadn't been the case my mother still would have ff. I think all her peers ff back then. (late 60s) My mom thought b'feeding was weird and all that. (She's been learning a little from me, but doesn't ask too many questions.)

I was breastfed. I don't know how long, but most everyone in my family on both sides breastfed their kids. My aunt even exclusively breastfed her twins. At least I don't have to argue with any of them on this topic. All the others though...

I was BF for about 2 months. This was back in 1970 when BFing was considered almost child abuse. Mom was misinformed and wasn't told that she needed to BF more for the growth spurts and so she had supply issues and was told to switch to formula. She also BF my sister and brother for about 2 months.

My sister's dr. told Mom that she should take away the bottle by the time my sis was 9 months. Sis was 6 months at the time. Mom took away the bottle and sis never missed it. Mom tried the same thing with my brother. Boy was he pissed! He's 37 now and my dad swears that weaning my brother at 6 months has caused him mental issues ever since. I was the baby and got my bottle until I was 2, but was given reg cow's milk, juice, etc...

My entire family has weight problems. I have asthma and PCOS. I never had ear infections until I was about 12 years old that was around the time we moved to Mississippi, so that could have been the climate change.

I often wonder what would have happened had Mom known how to really BF. She totally supports my decision to BF this baby and even says that I should do it until she is 2 years old. Go MOM!

I was breastfed for 6 weeks until my mom had mastitis and was told by her Dr. to immediately switch to formula because "her milk was infected and would make the baby sick" She also didn't really have any support- any time she would feel stressed or overwhelmed as all new moms feel her mom and her friends would tell her to "just switch to formula" so that combined with the dead wrong medical advice cut it short for me. When she had my sister she didn't even try to breastfeed. I've always been a lot healthier than my sister. We both were crazy about juice bottles until we were 3 or so. Neither one of us sucked out thumbs.

I was exclusively breastfed and my mom BF til i was 2. She was very active in LLL (still is at 63!!). I did suck my fingers til I was hhmmm? 10 or so? and had tons of ear infections as a kid, but I just imagine what it would have been like if I wasn't BF.
I consider myself very lucky that mom was so knowledgeable about BFing back then.. late 60s early 70s. I hope dd and the new little bean feel that way too someday!

I was ff, I was small when born, 5lb6oz. My mom was going to bf me, but I lost down to 5lbs, they told her that she had no milk, and if I lost any more weight then they were going to discharge her and keep me in the hospital : she switched to formula. She didn't even try to bf my sister 2 year later, went straight to formula.

I was formula fed because my mom believed that her milk never came in. As a (pregnant) adult, I feared that my milk too, wouldn't come in (figuring that it was a genetic breast shape/size thing) but I was really determined to breastfeed, so I started asking more questions. It turned out that my mom wasn't given a chance to nurse me until I was two-three weeks old (I was born six weeks early and had to stay in the hospital) and when she produced no milk, she figured that there was something wrong with her! When my brother was born two years later, she didn't even try to nurse him, assuming the same thing would happen

I was exclusively bf'ed for 3 months, then put on formula. My mom went back to work and didn't know anything about pumping. She was told by my ped. at the time that it didn't matter any way, so not to worry. I have been told that I started baby cereal at 2 weeks! According to my mom I loved it and it helped me sleep all through the night. My sister had complications at birth and was in a hopital for a month in another city, so my mom was never allowed to bf and was on formula from day one. Both of us were sick all of the time when we were little. Seriously, I had strep throat every year from age 4 to around 13 or so. And I usually have about 2 colds each year that get bad. Of course, I know it's OT, but I was also fully vaxed, even the optional ones, so I'm sure that added to it. Oh well, I plan to ebf and do CLW when I have babies. I've told my mom this and she's one of those "if they can ask for it they're too old" people. Uggh...At least I've got a while to convince her. Sorry for rambling(sp).

My three sibs and I were breastfed exclusively for six months and weaned entirely around a year old. No formula. The only reason we were weaned at around a year was my mother married kind of late and wanted a big family so was trying to close-space us, but had a hard time conceiving while nursing. It worked out great.

We never had ear infections and only one of us has a serious allergy. None of us has so far showed any signs of the family wheat allergy that my mom and her two sisters all have to varying degrees.

My mother was also breastfed, but supplemented with homemade formula since the doctors' advice on nursing pretty much ensured her mom would have low supply problems. When the doctors insisted she couldn't nurse bc she needed to monitor intake, she obtained a very accurate scale and weighted her babies before and after every nursign session.

I was ff from about 4-5 days on. My mom really wanted bf me, like really bad. She still is sad that it didn't work. I got really weak and could barely cry. My mom pumped some milk while her mom ran to the store and got a bottle. My mom said she pumped for a short time and then I was on formula.

She lasted a little longer with my little brother (2 years younger). My older sis (9yrs older than me) was born in the late 60's. My mom didn't even try with her. Back then (in FLA) the Dr's told her not to even touch my sister too much My mom feels REALLY awful about how detached she was from my sis. She held me and my brother constantly and never propped our bottles.

My bro and I have always been pretty healthy. I got strep throat a lot as a kid. I remember a long span of time where I got it yearly it seemed. I missed 2 weeks of school one time in like the 2nd or 3rd grade because I had strep so bad. I also had a few nasty ear infections that I recall.

ETA - I also had a *major* pacifier addiction. Apparently, I had one around my neck and one in each hand a lot of the time. I would rotate them

Bf'ed until I was 40 days old . My Mom said she dried up. I've had digestive problems my whole life from what my Mom tells me. Turns out I'm lactose intolerant. Who'da thunk? Guess back then, nobody thought about that.

I was BF for maybe 6 weeks but my mom said she was stressed out and I was hungry, and she didn't think her milk was rich enough (this was small town 1969) and so she started giving me formula. I was a pretty healthy kid but as I got older I started to have a weight problem which resolved as I got to my early adult years but I have always enjoyed food too much, been a comfort eater, like to drink too much and I used to smoke as well. So who knows!! Anyway I don't get sick often so I am sure I had some of the benefits. She supports me nursing as long as Will wants so I think if she'd had more support, she would have nursed me a lot longer.

I was breastfed for about a month and then I was switched to formula because my mother was too sick to care for me. My sister was breast fed till she was just over a year.

I was allergic to just about everything edible and was in and out of the hospital a lot in my first 3 years. Other then some freaky virus when I was 5 I had typical illnesses and my allergies were gone by the time I was 3-4 years old.

I was born in 1977 and my mom said that she didn't have any milk.

I think she was planning on ff me anyway...I think that was just what was DONE (actually in this area it is STILL what is "done" ).

I have PCOS and a low milk supply and turns out she probably has PCOS as well so I wonder if that was the problem or if they gave her a shot without her consent and it dried her milk up.

I was FF, and I have a TON of allergies, which may or may not be related, I don't know. My mom said she tried to BF me, but didn't have enough milk. : I am thinking she probably gave up before I was even a wk old. She said she tried to BF my brother and he had, "diarrhea," (which I think was actually BF poo) and she said he was colicky, so she switched to formula (and my dad admitted that it did not, "fix" the colic). I believe my youngest brother was FF from the very beginning, b/c by then I think my mom just felt that BF was too much trouble. Here is the sad part. My father is a pediatrician. : He thinks BF is best, but as soon as new moms have BF problems (which we all know that it's not at all unsual for first time moms to have BF issues at the beginning), he tells them to switch to formula. He does not refer them to a lacation consultant or anything like that either, just flat out sends them home with formula samples. :

When I had my first baby, my mom tried for the first SIX months to get me to switch to formula! It was like her life mission or something. She would even call my brothers and tell them how worried she was that my son wasn't getting enough milk and that they needed to call me, so I would switch to formula! I had a very difficult BF experience, my baby was tongue tied and I had a bad case of ductal thrush from the antibiotics I got during labor... none of which was diagnosed until I was 6 wks postpartum and so close to quitting, but didn't, b/c I was determined to BF. It just made me so upset that she seemed so determined to get me to FF, even showing up with cans of formula EVERY time she visited. : Thankfully, everything turned out ok, I nursed my son for 15 months, and weaned during the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy, b/c my milk dried up. I almost started screaming at my mom at the hospital when she came to visit a few hrs after I gave birth to my youngest baby. She had the nerve to ask me if I was going to breastfeed or formula feed my son! DUHHHH!!! What would possess her to think I'd decide to FF, after I had successfully BF'd my other baby already? I mean, geez, I have a bumper sticker on my car that says, "affordable healthcare begins with breastfeeding."

I'm another 70s baby. My mom nursed me up to 3 months then she had to go back to work. I was on formula from 4 months on. I don't think there were Medela breast pumps back then so I don't blame her. My mom only nursed my younger brother for a month because she got a high fever. Her doctor said because of the fever she had to stop nursing him and he was put on formula from then on. :

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

I was breastfed for about a year back in 1965. All of my 6 older brothers and sisters were BF'd except my oldest brother who was born 2 months premature at home and then caught pneumonia. This was in 1946. Back where my mother grew up most people BF'd their babies because that's just the way it was done. All 3 of my sisters have BF'd their children. I BF'd DD for a year and I'm EBFing my twins right now. It was not easy at the beginning either time, especially with the twins and my DS being in NICU, having to pump for him, DD being preemie and not knowing how to latch for weeks, slow weight gain. I almost quit several times but I'm just too stubborn. Now I'm to the easy part of nursing and soooo glad I didn't quit.
