    Still BFing! Kaia will be 6 months on the 16th of this month.
    No supplementing at all.
    Still plan on letting her self-wean.

    How long have you been BFing?
    Will be 8 months this month

    How is it going?
    great! Have yet another clogged duct right now though. Ouch

    Are you supplementing at all?
    1 bottle right before bed.

    Any problems or concerns?
    Nope.

    When do you intend on weaning?
    I'm not sure yet, probably around a year-ish. I plan to let him pretty much self wean, but we won't go past 2.

    I feel like I've been BFing forever though. I mean I had a little break while I was pregnant with Kaia but I don't know, I'll be happy when I have my boobs back when she's done

    Are you supplementing at all? I have tried but DS doesn't like the bottle
    Any problems or concerns? Not that I can think of
    When do you intend on weaning? Hopefully we make it til he is 12 months old

    See you in a year daddy

    well shes 8 weeks today, but i couldnt BF because she was in nicu, so monday will be 8 weeks! im so lucky she still latched after having formula!

    its going great, there are days i dont like it because we nurse for an hour at a time sometimes

    yes, i supplement because i cant pump enough and i go to school 4 days a week. we're getting there though!

    this colic is killing me! i dont know what to do! also, i really dont like sleeping with a bra

    i say i'll wean when she wants, but if she has it her way, she'll do it forever, this child doesnt care what it is, as long as milk is coming out! she'll take any bottle/nipple

    im still her favorite pacifier though

    How long have you been BFing? 18 days
    How is it going? Well
    Are you supplementing at all? Nope
    Any problems or concerns? I don't think I like BFing.. I like giving her my milk... but the whole leaking, constantly wearing a bra, having to wear certain clothing, pulling my boob out bit sucks. I might start pumping and giving her bottles of my milk a lot more in a couple weeks when she starts getting bottles anyway so Grandma (and eventually Daddy) can feed her.
    When do you intend on weaning? It depends. If I stick with the boobs, I'll let her self ween... if I switch to bottle completely... well I have no idea.... I suppose it all depends on how well she takes to a sippy cup. We'll see when we get there... I want her to have my breast milk for at least a year though no matter what.

    it does get better, you dont leak as much, but at 2 months, dont make it through the night feedings still. i completely agree with you
