    Maybe as your DS moves through the next 6 months and possibly starts waking more at night for teething, milestones, etc., your DH might come to appreciate what a great benefit BFing is for working through those tough times. IMO, 10 minutes of BFing at 3 am is so much better than an hour with an upset teethin lo who can't sleep. Possibly he doesn't realize what a great "trick" it is to have in your pocket

    Oh boy, if my son starts crying in the night my DH will be the first to tell me to continue nursing!

    I am pretty sure that my DS will get the length of nursing he needs as my DH above all else wants to ensure DS is happy.

    Sorry if this sounds *****y but I'm hormonal right now and I don't understand why some people, your husband included apparently, feel the need to interfere with the perfectly natural, beautiful, mother/child nursing relationship. Your husband sounds more like a "baby" than your son! If he feels threatened by other peoples comments about "mama's boys" maybe he should grow a pair and tell them where to go instead of making you do something that you and your baby may not be ready for. I'm sorry, I don't mean for this to sound like I'm yelling at you I just get so tired of women being second guessed all the time. We are mothers and we know our babies! I hope for your and your baby's sake that you don't wean until you and your LO are ready. You can't get this time back!

    That'shat I keep saying, let him be a baby while he is one.
