Re: Extended breastfeeding and the benefits
I'm so thankful for this sticky. My MIL has been giving me such a hard time about BF'ing my DD past 6 months (She's only 3 months now.) However, I intend to do it as long as she desires to and then weans on her own, which I'm hoping is no earlier than 2 years of age. My MIL has made comments about it being disgusting and unnecessary after 1 year of age, stating that there are plenty good formulas out there good enough to give instead (YEAH RIGHT!). She said she feels that when a child is talking about it, asking for it, and trying to get it or help get the boobie out - that it is just awful.... She really offends me a bit - but her comments almost are a bit of encouragement for me to stick it out as long as possible!!!! lol. THANKS!
