Re: Stopping Nursing?
I think your doctor has it backwards. Instead of "Wean your child so you can take a combination estrogen-progestin birth control pill", she probably meant to say "Don't take this combination pill so that you won't jeopardize your chances of nursing for as long as you and baby both want". Well, I hope that's what she meant to say, anyway... Because otherwise she's just plain wrong! And definitely exceeding the bounds of her knowledge about what your daughter NEEDS.
What are YOU looking for in a contraceptive? Do you want to maximize spontaneity? Reliability? Are you okay with barrier methods, i.e. can you use them correctly and consistently, or are you and your husband the sort of people who sometimes throw caution to the wind? What have you used in the past, and what have you liked? Do you want more children in the near future, or are you thinking of waiting several years before having another child, or are you done with having kids?
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
