I was wondering how many mamas are totally honest with their kid's peds and extended nursing. I stopped telling my sons' doc about nursing when my first son was 15 months and had a stomach virus. His doc told me I had to "stop all milk" as well as juice, etc. I didn't ask about mommy milk because I knew from other comments that I'd be told to stop nursing - and I knew that I wasn't going to do that since my milk was the only thing he was eating/drinking.
When my second son was 4 months old, his ped said "you can mix some cereal into his formula now". The doc was very surprised when I replied "he is still exclusively breastfed". He said, "oh, well, I guess you can pump some milk and feed cereal that way." I ignored his advice entirely.
I don't want to go through the hassle of changing peds (I did it once already for different reasons and it took months to get the files) though I am also wondering when enough is enough. I like the rest of the staff and their offices are convenient.
Thoughts? Experiences? Part of me wonders if I should be using this as a way to inform him? But I don't want to get into some weird power struggle with the doc.
