my family keeps making fun of me for nursing my son, who is not even 1 years old yet. my dad said, "are you gonna nurse him until he's 5?" and my mom said, "he only likes to nurse at night, isn't that weaning?" i do not appreciate the sarcasm, it is very hurtful and unsupportive. I would like to know how you guys deal with the jokes? what do you tell people? i am especially interested in any kind of research i can use to defend myself with. I told my family i am planning to nurse my son until he is at least TWO.
