    I'm glad your DH got on board the nursing-past-one train. Give him a big hug for me.
    So glad that he told his mom!

    You know I think it's very common for people to assume that once they are 12 months they aren't babies anymore and suddenly morph into toddlers. That just isn't true. Seems like it's the norm for them to be nursing a lot at 12 months and the relationship changing more towards the age of 2.
    BTW, at my IRL LLLI meeting on Thu, the Leader told us that the AAP is changing their guidelines to encourage nursing until 2!!

    Great news!!! When a man will stick up for you to his mom, that is always a good sign.

    My DH and I had more than one "heated discussion" over me continuing to bf DD1 past one year! You would never know it now. Having BTDT, I am SO happy to hear your story. WTG mama!!!!!

    Good for DH!

    You know sometimes men don't like to have an idea come to them from their wife They resist then come around when they hear it from someone else or later on when it's had time to really sink in. The funniest is when they cme back with it later like it's a brand new idea they just thought of. :rolleyes

    DH may have done some soul searching, but he also may have done some behind the scenes research and he's too manly to just come out and admit he was being too rigid before. In time he may even be an outspoken lactivist.

    I love how MIL has decided that your baby is clingy because of BFing. I have issues with my MIL too and I think it's because they're jealous that they can't soothe our babies for us, like we can. It's like they view it as something we've taken away from them, the opportunity to hold & feed. You'll have to excuse me if my heart isn't bleeding for them.
    You said it exactly right. I think it bothers my MIL that she needs my milk to care for him when she babysits. I've said this to people (mainly my sister and close friends). They think it's so strange that she would feel that way. I'm glad to see someone else has the same theory.
