Is it normal I don’t know how long I want to breastfeed for? Right now she's only 3 months, I know I don’t want to go passed a year though.

I'm not going passed a year. Neither my baby or me is attached to it, so I'm just doing it until she can start cows milk!

Its good to not put time pressure on yourself. I wanted to breast feed a year and I started having struggle producing enough around 7m. I was way too hard on myself because I was so fixated on this ‘must breast feed for a whole year thing’ but in the end doing a combo of formula and what I could pump was best for me and the baby. So play it by ear. Your doing great

I had a time line as well of at least a year but she didn't latch well and i never produced enough milk for her at like a week i had to stop and move to formula so no big deal whatever you decide to do

Just do it for as long as comfortably can. Don't worry about timelines.

Nicole asks So I got the liletta IUd 3 years ago, at that time the doctor said to come in in 3 years to get a new one. But now new research shows that it can be left in up to 5 years. I called planned parenthood and they couldn't give me any information because I'm not their patient. But I plan on going to them to get another one put in. I just don’t know if I need to get one now or if I can wait another 2 years.
