Ooh, I'm so sorry! I'm sorry that you have to deal with ridiculous comments, and unfortunatley these are not all that uncommon. I am still nursing my almost 2yr old daughter, am pregnant, and have found that the people who made the worse commetns were my own family. What I have learned, however and more importantly is that they are bystanders in this journey, and you my dear are doing and giving the most unbeleivable gift to your child for the rest of her life. Many that make comments are uneducated about the breastfeeding experience and make comments because they have no experience. In addition, breastfeeding is a longterm commitment to mother, child, and even the whole family. A women who makes this sacrifice to put her child first can push a button of guilt in other women who made the choice not to breastfeed. I learned this first hand from some bottle-feeding mothers, that their comments and judgments were driven by feelings of guilt and inadequacy as a mother. I was doing somehting they "should" have done, or "could" have done. I tell you, keep reaching out to other breastfeeding mothers, like on this forum or friends that have reached the goals you want to reach, and ignore the comments. As for your hubby, use your time with im to educate him. There are many great articles out there and on this site, to show your husband. The breastfeeding journey is a short one, in the bigger picture of life, and HIS darling child is reaping the greatest health benefit you can give her. Tell him, if anything, in today's flu season, your DD's best protection is that miracle mama's milk!!!
Good luck sweetheart, and keep up the GREAT work! You know in your heart what is best...just trust your soul, your heart, and your mothering. You WILL always do what is best!!! You already have
