Re: My constant battle
Sorry you're going through this. Is it mostly from people at work, or your family and friends? A lot of moms stop pumping at the year mark, but I bet you could get your pediatrician to write a note saying that your baby needs the milk. Or your OB could write one saying that you need to pump to keep mastitis at bay.
ETA: I haven't dealt with negative comments at work. And really only one negative comment directed at me when Lilah was about 19 months old from my MIL, although I knew she was thinking it. But I only see family a couple times a year, so I try not to let it bother me.
Lilah 10/08 nursed 25 months
Beatrix 01/11 nursed 30 months
