Before you had your baby/babies what was your original milestone, and what did you actually make it to?



Before I had Bub I only knew that I wanted to BF but didn't have an actual goal. We're at 7 1/2 months now so a year doesn't seem impossible anymore.



What about you?

My original goal was 6 weeks and to set short term goals along the way! He still nurses now at 13 months, they are having me wean because they are worried about pre term labor! I intend to nurse him again, if he wants, once this new baby is born!

12 months was my goal, but breastfeeding has been so easy for us since she was 3 weeks, and I love it, so now it's more a matter of "how am I ever going to stop" lol

with my 1st, my goal was at least the 1 year mark but probably 18 months.
I failed at breastfeeding him and only did it for a week.



with my 2nd my goal is 15/ 18 months. he s 10 month old and slowly weaning himself from my breast.



hopefully I ll be able to breastfeed. #3 for 18 months

I didn't and still don't really have a 'goal'. I sort of knew I would until 1 year. She's 10 months now and I figure that I'll just stop whenever she's ready.

With my first, my goal was 12 months... I made it 11.



With my second my goal was 12 months and we made it 16 before I had to get on meds for tendontitis... so we weaned.

My goal was 2 years (24 months) but I breastfed her until she was 32 months.



I have the same 2 year goal for this one, I don't want to breastfeed as long as I did with my daughter.

I wanted to do 6 months but stopped at 1 and a half weeks



She had latching problems, and my milk never really came in good. I was dried up in less than a week. Never got engorged or anything.

I took it 3 months at a time. I had tgiven up qucik with my first son and I was more determined to succeed this time. We are now at 10.5 months, so now I plan to go until he weans or 3 years whichever comes first.

With my first.. I didnt set a goal I just wanted to breastfeed. Then, I found out the benefits of extended breastfeeding. So, I wanted to continue until 2, or until he was ready to wean. We went 28 months.



Im at 14 months now, I will go to 2 years again probably, unless he is ready sooner.



I want my boobs back though lol
