I have been going with the flow as far as breastfeeding my son goes. We had alot of problems in the beginning and I managed to tread through it in spite of all of the difficulties. Its going so well and has been since he was about 2 1/2 months old. he's now approaching 10 months and my mother in law (whom is around ALL THE TIME) keeps pressuring me to stop when he turns a year old. I told her the WHO reccommends 2 years. And if its going well why stop? she insisted that he should just be given regular cows milk that is weird to breastfeed any longer. I keep educating her on the benefits of prolonged breastfeeding. She gets me so worked up. and what really sucks is my hubby feels the same way. I basicly told them both to GTH ill stop when I want to but this weekend at dinner she had the nerve to bring it up in front of guests. I dont understand, I would think she would want the best for him. any thoughts or suggestions??
