Re: Glad I'm here.
I only have one friend who is nursing. She is a work colleague who is MUCH younger than I am (she is 29 and I'm 44), has an 18 month old and has never used formula. She just pump weaned this week and is still nursing on demand at home. I am really proud of her. And me. And you. And anyone who makes this commitment because it's by no means easy and it's like a job on top of everything else we do.
I am so lucky - my pediatrician is like the physician version of me so I get to hear exactly what I want to hear and it's validated by her medical expertise.
But this is our FOURTH pediatrician (partly because of a relocation, partly because the first Ped in the old city and the first Ped in the new city SUCKED).
