  • A friend of mine stopped about 2/1/2. I think it was also for financial reasons , so not only healthier but a cheaper option than buying more cows milk .

  • My babies all self weaned by 14 months.. which made me sad.
    I really hope this last baby wants to breast feed for an extended period, although, I’m sure I will get tired of a 2 year old trying to whip out my boobie in the middle of the mall haha

  • Whatever you both feel comfortable with, my bubs basically weaned themselves at 14 months. I’m sure you will know when your child loses interest & no longer needs that comfort, sadly, all of a sudden they are grown up & off!

  • It’s up to you to decide what is best for you and your child.

  • As long as your kid isnt biting you keep it up as long as you want. I only stopped when i was pregnant with my second and third child. with the third child i only stopped when he wanted to at 18 months. Let your kid lead he way or stop if you have any health issues and know you have done whats best for you and your kid.

  • Stop if you and and when you want. It’s totally up to you if you think it’s the right time to stop.

  • If the child is two, they’re not really getting nutrition from it anymore – it’s comfort. So if you’ve had enough, I’d say it’s time to wean them.

  • I breastfed my daughter till she was 1 year and 1 week old. It’s your choice to go on or not. But there wouldn’t be anything bad if you decide to stop. :-)

  • Its great you have breastfed for so long, with my first I got bitten hard when she was 9 months after struggling with my milk supply so long I ended it there. My son weaned himself at 6 months, again I struggled with my milk supply. Congratulations, but if you have now decided you have had enough, you are right to give up. Good luck.

  • If you have had enough then it’s your choice when you stop.
    No one else can make that decision for you or pressure you to keep going


    • Exactly. The time is right when you or your child decide.
