Definitely attend your local LLL meeting. I've been going since DS was born (he's 5 months old), and I really enjoy it. It's great to meet with other moms who have similar parenting styles. Many have children/babies older than DS, so it's nice to ask experienced moms all my questions.
Several of my friends are currently BFing (there are five of us with babies all 5months and younger), but I've had one in particular say to me, "If you BF beyond a year, I don't think I can be friends with you anymore". Half joking but I found it to be quite offensive! She is a BFing mother herself. They all believe that children should be weaned by one year, because they say there's no longer any nutritional benefit. I beg to differ, and in my opinion, BFing is more about "getting the milk". Anyway, so I plan to go over a year if DS is keen to continue, and I plan to say, "The AAP recommends BFing beyond a year, because babies really do benefit from it beyond a year old". I'm hoping that will work. I also plan to say that I'm not going to just stop nursing DS because I feel it's time...I'm going to let him decide too.
