Re: help!, how do I deals with other peoples comments?
You can ignore people, or you can educate them. If you want to educate them, the following links may be useful:
- When to Wean
- Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk (note that the AAP recommends breastfeeding for a minimum of 1 year, and as long thereafter as long as both mom and baby are willing)
- WHO breastfeeding info (note that the WHO recommends breastfeeding for a minimum of 2 years, and as long thereafter as long as both mom and baby are willing)
- Extend Breastfeeding's Benefits
- Fat and Energy Contents of Expressed Human Breast Milk in Prolonged Lactation
- Unraveling Breast Milk
IMHO, the only person aside from you whose opinion matters when it comes to nursing is your DH's, because when mom and dad disagree over nursing it can cause problems. So I would make sure he reads up on the benefits of extended nursing.
