I don't really know why I am posting or what I want people to reply or hope to achieve but here goes.
I come from a VERY anti breastfeeding family but went against tradition and fed my son, I stopped at 6 months after weeks of niggling comments and just general unease.
I am now feeding my daughter and facing it all over again, this time, I really want to go longer. I'm just sick of feeling like I am doing something weird. I KNOW it isn't, I KNOW I shouldn't listen and I KNOW I just have to get on with it - the majority of the time I can just smile and nod but sometimes (like tonight!) it all just gets a bit much.
As I said, I don't even know why I am posting (apart from to get sympathy from people I don't even know) but I just feel so exhausted by it all. I can't talk to them or ask them to stop (I think they don't even realise they are doing it most of the time, it is just an all pervading atmosphere). I can never complain (for want of a better word) about anything remotely to do with feeding as it is just used as ammo against me. I'm just a bit fed up I think, I love feeding my little girl and just wish it wasn't such an issue
