Although I haven't made it to the one year mark just yet, we are only 2 1/2 months out, and since I've made it this long, and I'm convinced extended nursing will work and is best for me and my baby, I have also started hearing about my new decision.
My mother (I can hear the collective groans now) and several others are of the opinion that bf boys (and apparently this does not extend to girls?) will be "sexually malfunctional" if they nurse into the toddler years, and that they will somehow become breast deviants of some sort when they grow up. Aside from knowing this is completely rediculous, the best I can come back with right now is that nursing is NOT a sexual activity.
I'm sure this has been addressed before, so if there is a good thread will someone point me to it? Otherwise, how can I respond to this criticism?
