OK, so this isn't really about breastfeeding, but it is about my 14 month old son, who is still breastfeeding a couple of times a day:
David is not yet walking alone. I don't think that's particularly unusual. He gets around pretty well holding on to furniture or walls, etc. The pediatrician is not concerned. Lately some of the other moms on the playground have made some unkind comments to me about his development ("why can't he walk alone? is something wrong with him?"; "aren't you worried??"; "is anything else wrong with him?").
How do I respond to these thoughtless comments???? I try to just say that he's developing at his own pace, but I always walk away feeling angry.
