Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

The doctors suggested to me that they like to see us women breast feed up to a year because it is very healthy for the baby, but in reality it is all up to you when you would like to stop like me I am 7 and a half months pregnant and I plan on breast feeding for at least 10 months, plus after so long you can start using a pump and put them on bottles. Good Luck and congratulations it is a wonderful experience.
I was told that most drs recommend until atleast a year but it can be beneficial past this point too.. I have been struggling with this question myself.. My daughter is 12 months and I am 16 weeks pregnant with baby #2 I have just decided to let my daughter decide when she is ready to wean herself.. one fo those things that I am just playing be ear according to the needs and wants of the two of us.. It is an incredible bonding experience too.. enjoy it I cant wait to start nursing the other baby as well =)
around 10 months
