I found that people were very supportive of breastfeeding when my girl was a baby, and I never had a problem feeding in public. But now that she is 15 months old when I say that I'm still breastfeeding I get comments like 'really doesn't it hurt with all her teeth?,, gee you are doing well but can't she drink milk from a cup now?" No-one sees her being breastfed because she only feeds first thing in the morning and before bed, and the occasional comfort suck during the night when she is teething. Has anyone else experienced this change in people's attitudes & how did you deal with it?
