can't stand the DR. a little vent...
i've always done things a little different, so this is not new territory, but at moments I get very MAD at the ignorance & ego of M.D.'s. We had G's 4 month visit yesterday and all went well. And the DR asks how often he's eating, I say I'm still feeding on demand and he wakes usually around 1, then 3, then 5. (I need to tell the truth!)
'oh well, considering he's gaining weight beautifully and his age you can just let him fuss and go back to sleep as he can sleep through the night now, get him out of the habit of comfort nursing...'
so i say...
WELL, if he's gaining so good why would I want to change anything? And I plan to BF for a while and I don't want o jepordize my supply, AND I really don't mind.
HIM: Well yes your supply will go down, but you don't want him to get in the habit of always waking at night?
I do like him. For one reason he doesn't hassle me about not vaxing now, which is a huge reason I'm with him. But come on! GIVE THE MOTHER SOME RESPECT AND PROPS! Allow us to BF as much as the child wants, as often, and let this world be filled with secure, healthy children who have great trusting relationships with thier parents!
I'm only 4.5 months in this, but love it, and love BF!!!!And will not put up with people second guessing this beautiful connection...
