  • 1 1/2 years

  • 7 month with the first one and 2nd is 9 month currently and still feeding and hoping to do till she turn 1 year old.

  • 13 months for my first, 12 months for my second

  • My little one weaned herself at 6 months because she like her solids so much!! Having said that they are all individuals, decide what works best for you and your bub.

  • my kids- 14months, 17months (because i was pregnant) and 2years. the recommendation is now 2years for breastfeeding which was used to be one year.

  • I breastfed my daughter for about 15 months before she decided that she didn’t want it any more. My son is currently 16 weeks and I’m hoping he will continue for at least 12 months, if not longer :o)

  • My first was 14 months & my second has got 5 teeth now & has learnt to bite me. She’s nearly 10 months & I honestly don’t think it’s going to last much longer. Can get very painful lately. 9 months is very good

  • 3 years first. 2nd still going at 18 months.

  • 2 weeks

  • 12 months with my first & I plan on the same with my second

  • 3 1/2 years

  • I did not know you could only have two packs

  • Everyone is different.
    14 months with first born. Then straight to cup – cows milk.
    13 months with second born. Supplemented formula.
    9 months with third born. Supplemented with formula early on.

  • 1st 9 months – self weaned; 2nd 6 months – self weaned; 3rd 16 months – self weaned and 4th is nearly 17 months and is still breastfeeding! :D

  • 1st was for 13 months (self weaned) 2nd 6 wks (lactose intolerant) 3rd 6 months (self weaned) and my 4th 2 years 9 months i weaned him off think he would still be going if i would of let him hes now 4 and a half lol.
