  • Seasoned Nurser: 5

So it looks like the majority are Seasoned Nursers! Then there are a few out there pregnant and considering nursing! Hope these survey questions help you see some other nursing mommy’s opinions on essential items etc.! 🙂

Question #3:
How long do you plan to nurse, or how long have you nursed your child/children?

Results to #3:

  • 15 months (self weaned) X2
  • 12 months (self weaned due to pregnancy)
  • 12 months, weaned
  • 13 months, weaned
  • 14 months, weaned
  • 14 months (weaned due to hyperemesis)
  • Currently nursing 22 month old (and pregnant!)
  • Currently nursing 12 month old (and pregnant)
  • Currently nursing 19 month old (and pregnant) planning on self weaning
  • Currently nursing 2 year old and 6 month old
  • Currently nursing 16 month old
  • Currently nursing 10 month old
  • Planning on nursing until self weans X2
  • Planning on nursing until about 2 years old
  • Planning on nursing for 12 months X2

So for those who have weaned, between 12-15 months was the most common time, some self weaning, others not, and some due to pregnancy or other reasons. I’d also like to add that SAP was weaned at 14 months, and it was very hard on me. I did not want to wean that early and had wanted to nurse for 2 years, but due to starting a full time job to provide for my family I had to wean. Up until this point I had nursed exclusively (no formula ever!) and pumped/bottle fed when I was in work or college classes and couldn’t get to the daycare for a feeding, but a full time job was too much for us. So this would make14 months would be the most common time, with 15 months shortly behind!

For those who are currently nursing wow! Many of you are not only nursing older babies, but are pregnant too! I’m impressed! Proud of you mamas!

And for those of you who are planning on nursing, quite what I had expected, the comment 12 months, 2 years, or until self weaning. The 12 months and self-weaning seemed to be equally popular in this section, although with as many currently nursing mothers who have gone past 12 months, seems that self-weaning is seeing a lot of mothers moving in that direction! 🙂

Question #4:
What is your favorite nursing product? It does not have to be Medela, I just am interested to know!

Results to #4:

  • Pump In Style X3
  • Nursing Tanks!
  • Breast pads
  • Boppy Nursing Pillow X2
  • Cabbage, for sore nipples!
  • Lansinoh Breast Pads
  • Lansinoh Lanolin X2
  • Freestyle Breastpump
  • Freemie (hands free pumping product, NEW!)

So, once again, the favorite item is the Pump In Style Breastpump! I should really look into that one I think! And runers up, no surprise here, Boppy nursing pillow, and then Lansinoh Lanolin (or other lanolin) product! I agree with you mamas, definatly a must!! Breast pads also mentioned but seemed people had different preferences here.

Congrats once again to Kacy!! Good luck to everyone else on my future giveaways, don’t give up!
