Re: Am I really so outrageous?
Maybe you could find some links to studies showing the benefits of pumping and extended BFing and then post them in an email to your family. Include a gentle but firm note about how you do not expect them to agree with all your decisions re: your children but you ask that they at least respect your right to make them. Maybe you can silence them forever on the topic.
