    Default I love my pediatrician!

    I took my dd in for her 1 year check and he actually congratulated me on having nursed her to a year. He said, "Only around 10% of moms and babies make it this far, you did great!" He then told me to keep nursing her for as long as we both want to.

    I am so glad that my daughter's doctor is supportive. We had trouble with a PA in the practice at first.

    We read so many stories of ignorant (about bfing) and unsupportive doctors on these boards. It's great to read a positive story.
    And BTW, congrats on making it one year mama!

    A few of my favorite things that I've discovered on the forum: co-sleeping, baby-wearing, tandem nursing, baby-led solids, cloth diapering, APing, selective vaccination...the list goes on

    Mine did the same thing! Not only that, but when she asked about giving her whole milk and I said that I was going to nurse instead, she commended me again! I, too, love my ped!

    My son's pediatrician is very pro-breastfeeding. Of course it helps that his wife is a lactation consultant!
