Re: Is anyone else a closet Extended bfer?
I don't deny to anyone that I'm still bfing, but I don't publicize the fact anymore. I also don't correct people when they assume I'm done. I live in a very conservative area, and most people only BF a few months, if at all.
My LO only wants to nurse a few times a day now though, and she can go 7 or more hours during the day w/o nursing. So we rarely nurse anywhere but at home, so nobody else besides DH ever really sees it.
I also have a MIL who thinks she needs to be weaned before she spends the night with her. She is constantly asking if my LO is still "on the breast." I HATE that term. Like I walk around with her nursing constantly or something. She also keeps talking about weaning and how awful it will be for us...she just doesn't get it that I'm not planning on weaning any time soon.
