    Angry Just need to vent

    So my LO is 5 1/2 months. I plan on soley breastfeeding until a year. I mean no solids until a year. I have quite a few problems that run in my family that I have researched and they all say breastfeeding and waiting on solids until a year can lesson his chance of developing these. Anyways I posted my myspace page my emotion of not doing this and to my suprise got this comment from someone:
    For the same reason I tell people its wrong for a child past 9mons old to still suck on a pacifier. Savannahs been eating adult food for months now and drinks real milk and juice all from a sippy cup. She won't be a year til Dec 16.
    I mean what the hell. Um real milk, and what am I giving Andrew fake milk. Also excuse me for letting my baby be a baby. It just really annoyed me

    It can be annoying can't it. Sometimes people not doing what they know is best, come up with a 'defense tactic' to make it seem like what they're doing is better. They can never really fool themselves though, so they try to convince others.

    Let it roll off your back. do not respond to it.


    Keep your focus clear and - well - focused and if you continue to share what you're doing and how you're feeling - without responding negatively to opposing positions - you leave the door open for them IF/WHEN they choose to come to you for assistance. If you reply to thoughts such as this,you tend to slowly close the door.

    Someone recently called this type of thing "willful ignorance".
