i know that sounds really weird, but i live in the south, and my grandmother has some old wives tale about the farmer's almanac and the signs being in the knees today, and to not "feed" the baby.... first my dd just turned 1 last week, second she is pretty sick right now, third i am in no hurry to wean her at all, and i really don't care for all my family's friendly advice about doing so. they have been on my case to wean dd since she was 6 months old... idk why they think it is their business how my child eats, but they have made it theirs, and its driving me crazy! i just really don't see the big deal about taking our time with the whole process. she is really big on table foods and eats anything i do(or anyone else.lol) and i know in her time she will rather have food and her own drink, she is quite independent. but until that time comes i just really wish my family would lay off. no one i know (except one girl that i really don't know that well) has ever bf their baby, let alone for a whole year. they really just have no clue what bf is all about. just wanting to vent,because today, like every time i see her, my grandmother is on her "get gabby off the boob crusade" and i'm just real sick of it!
