POLL: did you breastfeed?

I wanted to know how common breast feeding was. I haven't known anyone who breast fed until I moved here, and I met a female marine. Other than that, I know noone.

Special K --- 6 years ago -

I plan to when I have kids. 

MylilZombie --- 6 years ago -

I breastfed both my babies but not as long as i wanted. my 1st i fed til she was 3 months and my 2nd i only did it for 1 month cause i dried up 

littlesilverheart --- 6 years ago -

almost all my friens breastfed for at least 6 months ... i did as well ! it is the best food for baby if u can do it ! i did it for 8 months ... 

Hokey*Pokey --- 6 years ago -

my first for 3 months and my second for a year. But the second one got a bottle once or twice a day 

ImHisPrincessL314 --- 6 years ago -

I breastfed my baby until a day before her first birthday. 

MissMaggy --- 6 years ago -

Really? I always thought it was more common, just because it's widely accepted to be better for health. 

cede --- 6 years ago -

i read it helps you lose baby weight really really quickly too? 

Abra --- 6 years ago -

Every single baby in the nicu my daughter was in, was breast fed. There were 30 beds.....all full plus the babies that came in when one was discharged. I was honestly shocked considering I always here about how breastfeeding isn't common anymore. 

Giggle Butt --- 6 years ago -

1 til 2 months
2nd til 7 months 

ALEM --- 6 years ago -

Ashlyn no
logan, tried but he didnt have a sucking reflex then when he finally started he had severe refux so it was to formula for the lil tank! 

MylilZombie --- 6 years ago -

i read it helps you lose baby weight really really quickly too? 

after having my 1st baby i was in my regular jeans like 5 days later it was about 1 week later with my 2nd 

littlesilverheart --- 6 years ago -

yes it does help u loose the weight ...more important it is better for ur baby 

Giggle Butt --- 6 years ago -

That's a myth! Lol initially, it helps with contractions.

I was always hungry! Lol I'd never eaten a whole "large" big Mac meal before. 2 months into BFing.... I did! My husband was in shock! Lol

I thought it was too I've only know a few people who haven't and only one of them didn't try at all. 

cede --- 6 years ago -

well i'm not pregnant, nor wanting any-any time soon, but i was curious because i'm watching this live birth vlog, and the people were chatting about it on the side. 

Barbie --- 6 years ago -

Every one in our room was except one but I over heard and they hadn't heard from the parents in over a week. The nurse was telling the social worker to call his command 

littlesilverheart --- 6 years ago -

it burns calories it is no myth 

NCgal --- 6 years ago -

my first I did till he was 10 months. Im having a C-section on Wednesday and Im planning on doing it again :) 

foxed --- 6 years ago -

We were lucky... 1st for a bit over 27 mos, 2nd, like 11 mos.
Too bad it wasn't for longer, but they're right good kids anyway lol :) 

Trace --- 6 years ago -

Breastfeeding does burn calories but it also makes you hungry. I lost 20lbs within two weeks of my daughters birth but packed it back on over the next 9 months while giving into my nursing cravings.

My first I nursed for 2 mo, my second for 9 1/2mo. 

Abra --- 6 years ago -

I overheard something like this in the nicu the day we were leaving. Apparently there was a baby being transfered there after a hospital stay. He'd.had an allergic reaction to formula and the parents were nowhere to be found for consent for treatment or to have the mother breastfeed :( 

Starr --- 6 years ago -

I am the first in my family to breastfeed. My mom actually made a "gross" face when I told her. 

ImHisPrincessL314 --- 6 years ago -

Wow breastfeeding isn't gross...that's strange to me that she thought it was...my mom didn't breastfeed either but was glad that I was able to. 

MrsTejeda --- 6 years ago -

I'm the first also, my mom freaked out (not in a bad way) when she first saw me bf. She was amazed on how discreet I was, without a nursing cover. 

Abra --- 6 years ago -

I had a family member stare, I was so uncomfortable. I knew she was curious but she went out of her way to go around and STARE. 

Canine Comander --- 6 years ago -

I plan to BF all of my babies. It'll be tough to start, since I won't be getting pregnant, but I'm going to do everything that I can to BF them. 

lovin u --- 6 years ago -

1st- 3 weeks
2nd- 3 months
3rd- 1 month (wanted a year but we both got.thrush and I couldn't take the pain)
4th- almost 8 months now and still going strong... she has no idea how to drink out of a bottle... its quiet funny because she knaws (sp?) on it 

Mer Independent Scentsy SSD --- 6 years ago -

I BF'ed for a year with #1 and 2 years with #2 

SecretSquirrel --- 6 years ago -

15 months
19 months
9 months (stopped early due to allergies)
Pumped for 6 weeks for a friend's baby who I carried as a surrogate.
