My ped is a little loopy at times. Our 12 mo visit tues went fine. The nurse asked how much whole milk she was drinking and I told them maybe 2 oz a day- I only give it to her with her meals. I told them I was still bfing every 3-4 hours. When the doc came in she asked about the whole milk- "Only about 2 oz a day?" I told her yeah, we are still nursing and that i only introduced the milk last week. She didn't say anything other than her "Okay" which is kinda a questioning okay- KWIM. Then she said something I thought was really stupid, "Babies tend to forget easy where there milk comes from" I guess she was hinting that a sippy and whole milk is what I should be going for. I heard the word "sippy" but nothing else, I was still caught on that comment. Is she implying that weaning is easy because my lo will forget that she got milk from her mommy for the past year? I think she smoked some crack before she came in the room..lol... Anyhow, she asked how long I plan to nurse and I said when she and I are both ready to stop. To that I got no reply. O'well, atleast she didn't come right out and suggest weaning. I worked hard to bf until a year, why would I just all of a sudden stop???? Crazy Crazy Crazy
Just thought I would let you all know that weaning should be easy because "babies tend to forget easily where their milk comes from"
