My son is only nine months old and already I am hearing pressure to wean him. I am so frustrated because the people that are pressuring me are very close to me. My mom has commented about three times now that I could give him formula at this point and he would be fine. My baby's doctor, who is also a friend, has gone so far as to give me formula for him. The doctor's reasoning was that because baby goes to daycare I would need the formula so I did not have to pump at work. It is just so frustrating. It seems that when baby's are new borns everyone and thier mother too are all interested in if you are breastfeeding and pressuring you TO breastfeed and then once the baby gets older those same people are on you to quit. I feel like my mother was just encouraging me to breastfeed because she was hopeful I would lose weight. I know that sounds terrible and she is a great mom but I really feel that this is true. I think now that she sees that I am gaining wieght and not losing she is done with the supporting of the nursing. Sorry just had to vent. I know that this is long.
