So before I knew anything about breastfeeding, my DH had asked how long I was going to nurse our DS. In hindsight, I really didnt know anything about breastfeeding except for things I had heard...couldn't even tell you where. But it seemed that nursing your baby until they're one was the magical number. So that's what I told DH.
AS of now, there is no end in sight for my DS. And I'm thrilled about that
He nurses like a newborn right now and has been for a couple months.
I've tried to explain to DH the benefits of extended breastfeeding & that I didn't know what nursing was going to be like and that I had given him an uneducated answer, but I've learned a lot now..and I plan for DS to self-wean. I've explained that it's a gradual process.
He seems to still want an age as to when that will be. He's very much the conservative type so I think his main concern is what family/friends will think/say as I continue to nurse our "walking" baby. In his words..."he's getting too old for that".
(NIP took a few times for him to get used to but I do it all the time now)
I guess my question is...has anyone else dealt with this?
Or does anyone have some advice on how to better discuss this with DH?
