Re: Starting Solids/Reducing Nursing Sessions
Breastmilk should be the baby's main source of nutrition until 12 months. You don't want to drop nursing sessions until much closer to your baby's first birthday.
Umm... Why is it your DH's business how long you nurse your baby? And considering that the American Association of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for a minimum of 1 year and as long thereafter as mutually desired by mom and baby, with increased duration of nursing correlating with increased health benefits for both mother and child, and considering that the World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for a minimum of 2 years... What on earth is he thinking, when he tells you he doesn't want you to nurse until the minimum 1 year mark?
Your breasts, your baby, your choice. If you want to nurse your baby, nurse your toddler, nurse your child- do it. Don't let your DH dictate to you, not in this most intimate realm of all things.
