My aunt who pretty much raised me is telling me I need to stop nursing my son who will be a year old June 25th because he is to old. She never nursed any of her children and thinks of it as a "taboo" thing to do. I on the other hand am VERY committed to breast feeding and plan to nurse him for as long as it is comfortable for the both of us. I need advice!!!! I'm so tired of hearing that "he's to old for that or you'll never be able to go back to work because your turning him in to a mamas boy or (and this is my favorite) that I'm messing him up mentally by breast feeding him so long. I'm at my wits end I don't want to be mean and tell her to mind her on business but I don't know how much more I can take. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! And thank you in advance.
