I need some advice my baby is only 3 months old and I was only planning to nurse her for one year but since being on this forum and really reading up on BF I wish to continue and let her self wean and I'm hoping we can have a long beautiful nursing realtionship I love nursing her and want her to have all the benefits.
As for the advice, last night when my husband came home and i was cooking dinner I mentioned that breastfeeding documentary that was coming out I was all excited His response was "That's weird" I asked him why? He responded whod waant to see that. I said I would many moms and every woman that is thinking of having a child should see it. He laughed at me...ugh
Later as I was nursing I started to tell him that I wanted to nurse Emmie until she was at least 2 He said no way that so weird. It hurt my feelings he went on to tell me how since I had her Ive been acting so weird. Whats so weird I said he responed all you think about is nursing and your scared to put her down shes always attached to you. You want to breastfeed her when she can talk and ask for it thats gross! Your becoming one of those "nuts"
One of those nuts? what! I got really pissed off and just couldnt believe what he was saying to me. He always supported that I breastfeed not that hed care if Id switch to formula tomorrow but he never put me down.
I tried to tell him the facts and health benefits but his eyes just seem to glaze over. "its only for babies" .. . (2 years old is still a babyto me)).
I want to resolve this with him now so its not hanging over my head and so he clearly understands that i am going to nurse as long as I can.
I think he takes things I say about how much better BM is the Formula personally because he was formula fed.
I posted another thread about my MIL sneaking formula into my home and trying to give it to my baby while i was away maybe he's worried about his familys reaction
But to call me a "nut" that plain hurt is it nuts to want whats best whats normal.
Any experience with DH that arent really into x-bf
thanks sorry for the rant
NAk sorry for weird typos
