I was very upset when i took my son to his 15 month well check. Prior to this i really liked my doctor a male in his thirties (married but no children)
When i told him i was still nursing 2 x a day (morning and night) he asked me point blank - Are you nursing for yourself? or your son? i was outraged! Of course it is for him - he comes to me always initiates the nursing. he went on to tell me there were no health benefits for peyton (my son) after a year. now my son is 17 1/2 months old and this week i have begun weening him at night and it has been horrible. he is so upset and takes forever to go to sleep. my husband has been doing the bedtime routine. he supports the weaning an feels it is time. I wouldnt mind continuing until he weens himself. but with no support i have begun weening at night.
my question is - i now feel uncomfortable with my pediatrician and want to find someone else- my husband says whatever i want. I am really upset over the whole thing.
anyone have any thoughts?
