I was at a restaurant with all the in-laws the other night and was asked the famous question ... how long? I remained calm on the outside (I think) while on pins inside. I can't even remember my response, something like "I'm not sure, we'll see how it goes, each month she grows and changes in different ways." I had mentally prepared myself that they're expectation was We'd be stopping soon and put my defenses up. Instead their follow up to my response was OVERWHELMING support of how great it was we were still nursing and how GOOD it was for dd.Originally Posted by Momtoone
I am trying to change my perception to expect that when asked this in the future, especially from strangers, that they are going to be pleased and proud the longer we nurse. Megan will be 1 year old next month.
Leaving DD with others...
I have found that dd nurses more frequently when she has unobstructed access. I love to nurse, so I readily offer my milk at the slightest sign of interest. If I'm not around she is happy for hours (even up to 5-6 recently) with food and watered-down juice from others.
