I am placing this on the Nursing-Beyond-One-Year forum, because I think you’ll appreciate the rest of the world’s view on “extended” nursing best and can lend perspective to my situation.
My husband and I separated last month, and things have not been going great between us. He has never been supportive of my nursing. With our twins nearly 18 months old, he thinks continued nursing is abnormal behavior. I work f/t and nurse first thing in the AM and to put them to bed at night. They will take a bottle from him with no trouble normally.
Now, he wants more (consecutive) time with our 3 children, and while I’ve been pretty liberal in giving visitation, I won’t allow him to have the twins overnight two nights in a row because we are nursing. He is not happy about this. I don’t need to be convinced of the value of BF, but I think it may well come before a judge (or possibly a mediator) as a complaint that I am using this to withhold reasonable visitation. Anyone have any thoughts or experience in this?
