Re: Family Criticism
Don't second guess yourself. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends nursing to 1 year, and the World Health Organization recommends nursing to 2. I think they are probably a more reliable resource on infant feeding than your MIL!
I think the two best things you can do right now are to gather your information, and to get your husband on board with your nursing plans. He may be able to confront your MIL a little more easily than you can- after all, he probably confronted her a LOT when he was a teenager, so he's got practice.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
