Re: Pressure to give up :(
I am sort of in a similar boat, but I think my family has less influence over me than yours. They live in another state and I, frankly, have never listened to anything they say about anything and it's always been for the best! But my mother has made comments about how I need to stop BFing and should start pumping so she can have milk from a cup. Only 2 people in my 30-some aunts and cousins have ever BF, and I don't even know how long since it was not really discussed by my family. I just take my LO out of the room and BF her away from everyone else if I suspect there will be comments. And if they start up again, I say, "Not up for discussion. I know more about this than you do." Because it's true -- you obviously know more about it than they do.
Definitely come on here for support. You're doing what's best and you don't want to be pressured again. Parenting is not the kind of thing where you get experience and are an "expert," so I don't know why older family members feel that they are such!
