Hi ladies! Our son just turned ONE on 12/21 and I have EBF since birth . I am so proud of nursing our son and love doing it. I now find myself dealing with people acting sort of weird to me that now he is the big ONE I need to start weaning asap. My MIL and a couple of friends/aquantances have made some not so nice comments about OK..he is one..he shouldn't be taking a bottle (I pump at work), he should be on a sippy cup and no more nursing. He is totally fine with a sippy cup and does well, but lately he wants to NURSE, NURSE, NURSE. We co sleep (family bed) and he still nurses a couple of times a night. But, in the day too, he wants to nurse all the time.
I am so OVER my MIL saying stuff about me nursing pass one, it's annoying. I just don't know what to say to her, or others without being totally rude.
Second, we would like to try and have another baby, and I'm not getting any younger, so we would like to start trying now to see if it will happen. If not, we're fine with one..but want to give it a shot. I got my AF 6 months after our son was born and my periods are pretty regular. Do you think if I continue to nurse it will hurt our chances?
Third, I am going through some changes at my job..I work 3 days a week and pump, but would like to give up pumping at work but I'm afraid my supply will totally go away. It's just getting harder to pump at work..I've heard of women just nursing in the morning and night and their supply being just fine...just wondering about that.
Thanks so much for any advice...I feel SOOOO fortunate to still be able to nurse our son and the bond between us is beautiful! I think too, I'm going to be sad when he weans and if I wean to try and get pg.
