I went to a new ob-gyn today for my annual pap smear (last one moved practices) and mentioned to the nurse I was breastfeeding while she was doing my vitals & history. She asked how old my baby was and I said "Two-and-a hal
f yr. old". Usually, I get what's "that child still doing nursing?" from health professionals at this point, other than my pedi, who is supportive of it. This nurse's response was, "That's great! I'll bet she's loving it. My mom breastfed me until I was 4. You keep it up. So many people don't realize they breastfeed much longer in other countries around the world."
I definitely wasn't expecting that reaction!
