My son is 12 months old. No formula and no cows milk now either. I went for his 12 month check up and they asked if I was giving him whole milk. I thought the nurses jaw was going to hit the floor when I told her that I was still breastfeeding and was planning to continue. She said that had never heard that before from one of their patients! And she also said that most mothers quit after their baby's teeth came in! The rest of the appt was quite positive. Basically good job mommy and that I don't need to give him cow's milk if I continue to bf. So I was happy. But I thought it was a little sad that so many mommies give up breastfeeding so soon. Am I wrong? When do you stop or when do u plan to stop breastfeeding?
