Re: Finding a Balance
I am highly concerned about those comments from your DH. That is emotionally abusive, not just derogatory. If my DH said something like that, he'd be moving into the Comfort Inn down the road pronto. You may need to consider counseling if it seems like DH is trying to sabotage your BFing efforts. From what you're saying, he is not working with you on this, and I can't imagine it's going to get better as your baby gets older, because I suspect he'll be pressuring you to wean early. Even supportive husbands are guilty of that. Please keep a strong head about this. This is one area where you are doing what's right, so you can feel confident in that.
