Hi. I'm new in this community, thought I would just introduce myself :)
My name is Rebecca and I'm from Sweden. I have a 10 month old son, who I breastfeed as much as I can. I have been almost yelled at by my son's pediatrician because I didn't want to start with solid food when he was seven months, because he didn't gain weight very much (but the pediatrician always said he didn't look malnourished so I didn't quite see the problem -.-). Now he eats from my breast in the night once or twice. Almost panicked when he didn't one night, so I'm thinking about breastfeeding him before it's nappy-time.
I planned to breastfeed til' my son were at least 2-3 yrs, but now he seem to lost interest by himself, I can't say I don't blame the pediatrician for making me give my son solid food before I wanted to :(
How much and when do you breastfeed your babies?
