I guess the title says it all. I was determined to breastfeed my son, and even though it was a rocky start (thrush & insanely sore nipples), we've had such a great breastfeeding relationship. We co-sleep, he wakes up frequently through the night to nurse and I honestly have no problem with it whatsoever. However, my husband thinks it's odd to breastfeed him much longer. He wants me to stop after 8 months. He says I should pump after 8 months, but my plan is to go until the baby self weans whenever that comes. Also, my son is not interested in eating solids. I'm partial to letting the baby tell me when he's ready, but my husband's mother thinks it's crazy that he's 7 months and hasn't eaten solids. My own mother thinks i'm crazy for co-sleeping, feeding on demand and not giving solids - so there's no support coming from that way. I feel like I have to hide. Anyone else go through anything similar?
I will not stop breastfeeding, not an option. I just want to figure out how to get my husband on board.
