How long did you continue breast feeding once solids were introduced? There is so much literature but what do moms actually do.

I'm still breastfeeding at almost a year - he got teeth later (10 months) and has done a lot of comfort nursing and has been on a bit of a solids strike...so I won't be stopping at a year like I planned 😉

I've read a lot of literature that concludes at least 2 years is best. Me? I plan to continue for a year then introduce a sippy cup with breast milk alongside meals for the next year if I can

We are still breastfeeding at almost 21 months. Right now, the plan is still to allow him to self-wean.

Do what's comfortable for you and your child. I waited until my child was a year old. That's usually when they can start drinking dairy milk so it can be a great time to start but either way you choose your baby will still be healthy and happy:) good luck!

I'm planning on breastfeeding for at least a year.

We're gonna do a year too--breastmilk is still baby's primary nutritional source until then and the solid foods are more for practice for later.

Still breast feeding and he's going on two next week. Planning on when he's ready to self wean. He nurses between 2-3 times a day. Has 2 cups cows milk 3% and also water. Do what you feel is best for you and your lo.

I'm at 8 months and trying to make it to a year.. Breast milk or formula should be still be a main staple even when starting formula..sometimes my LO doesn't eat lunch she'll just nurse. And sometimes she skip dinner and just nurse which is completely ok

I still breast feed. My LO is 7m and only eats breakfast solids. Other times I still breast feed or give her bottle breast milk. Even when she starts two or three solids meals ill keep going to hopefully a year.

I'm BFing at 9 mon and have every intention to continue till he weans himself. I'm not in a rush to stop. Do what works for you. I know many moms that BF their toddlers (2-4 y/o)
