8 months & 7 months respectively.
They both lost interest & were too nosy to see what was going on elsewhere in the room.

2 years for my first (who absolutely refused formula!) And one year with the second who then gave up of his own accord.

Currently at 17 months. DD is showing no signs of slowing down yet, day or night. I'm going to let her self wean, whenever that may be.

Three weeks for both DDs. I literally ran out of milk at that stage each time.

Knottyknitter Thu 25-Feb-16 21:10:02

13 months. Just wasn't practical once I got back to work.

TeaBelle Thu 25-Feb-16 21:10:05

16 months

10 months with my first.

Expecting my second and planning to EBF again - maybe shorter, maybe longer.

I stopped first time when it felt right, will do the same again.

Gisla Thu 25-Feb-16 21:10:20

15 months so far and no plan to stop anytime soon. I'm fine to carry on for as long as she wants at the moment.

worriedmum100 Thu 25-Feb-16 21:10:57

4 and a half months.

MissCalamity Thu 25-Feb-16 21:11:02

DS 7 months, DD 8 months. Once teeth started coming through that was it for me grin

I breastfed exclusively until 4 months when we introduced solids, then still quite a lot until about 8 or 9 months when I went back to work. I still fed ds once a day most days after that, and definitely remember breastfeeding on his 1st birthday, but by then it was intermittent, maybe once or twice a week. I'd have liked to continue for longer but he completely lost interest eventually. He's 15 months old now and has point-blank refused to feed for a while. Doesn't say no to a roast dinner and dessert though....

Miss c I struggled to read your sentence (my fault, been up since half 4) and for some reason I thought you meant teeth were coming through in your breastmilk.
my toes were literally curling!

SovietKitsch Thu 25-Feb-16 21:13:19

14 months, 12 months, 18 months and counting. DC1 & 2 were quite happy to stop, by DC3 is showing no sign of wanting to stop! I hadn't intended to get to 2 at all, but I expect we will now.
