My son is 19 months and I still breastfeed exclusively from my breast, he never took a bottle... Now he eats a lot of solid foods and drinks juice out of cups but he still wants breastmilk. He won't take cow milk no matter how hard we try... He cries if he doesn't get his breastmilk and he is a stubborn baby, he will cry and cry and cry... So me and my husband decided that he will stop on his own time...Now I'm almost 7 months pregnant... I have been hearing comments since my son turned 1 about me still breastfeeding him and I just ignored it but it's getting more and more irritating!! I hear them the most from my friends who either dont have children or ones that didn't even bother trying to breastfeed. My aunt told me 2 months is too long, Aside from my husband, my mom,my sister, and my in-laws everyone else has always had something to say. My father always has something to negative to input! At the doctor I go to we alternate between two female doctors. One is so excited that I was still breastfeeding and ask was I going to tandem feed and I told her it was based on my son. She also told me it was perfectly safe to continue feeding him. Just last week I went to my doctors for the check up on my pregnancy and saw the other doctor and she was so rude, saying if my son is walking he shouldn't still be on the breast! Well my son started walking at 7 months!! So my mother was upset , (who never breastfed) and told me to change my doctor... It's just beginning to get to be too much!
