I can't believe anyone would have the gall to make comments about such a personal decision! Seriously! I'm lucky to have supportive parents, ILs, and doctor, but I certainly don't give a rip what anyone else thinks about my deicsion to keep nursing DS past age 1.
Someone here mentioned her mother didn't BF because of the lack of 'freedom' if she had done so...if you read What To Expect, the pros of BF and FF are discussed. Almost all of the BF pros are beneficial to the baby (PLUS benefits for mom like faster wt loss, etc.!) and ALL the pros of FF are beneficial to the MOM ONLY! And since when did having a baby mean you still got to be 'free'?
Sorry, that turned into a total vent/rant!
