I am confused....some people are encouraging me to breatfeed, saying that it is the best thing for the baby; some people said 'shame on you' still feeding your 15 months old...he is too old for breatmilk now. What should I do? I am battling deep inside myself. I love the bounding between my son and me when I hold him close to my breasts and watching him enjoying the breastmilk. However, he wakes up a few time a night searching for my breasts too for comfort. I want him to have nice restful sleep and begin to eat more other solids (he is a picky eater...loves veggies, fruits, yogurt, but not so much meat). He wouldn't drink any formula nor milk. Not sure if it's due to breastfeeding. These are the reasons that I want to quit breastfeeding. Other than that, I love to feed him and I am not ready to give up yet. How did other moms do?
