I'm sorry, but this just peeves me so much. Why would anyone be against me doing the best thing for my baby?!? My in-laws are ridiculous about Bfing for anything longer than like a couple of months. My MIL constantly says how she can't believe people would go for longer because, Oh my Gosh!, the baby gets teeth. Um, they don't bite you, dummy!!! I have BFed both the boys too and it never happened, you think she would realize that by the 3rd time. And even if it did, I wouldn't stop, so there!! My grandmother-in-law is the same way. She keeps trying to get me to feed Norah solid food right now and telling me I should stop BFing soon so that I can be "free." Free from what, giving the best to my child and loving every minute of it? She also completely believes that things that were done in the 1950s are still great, no matter what modern medicine says, ok, right. They didn't BF their kids, so I shouldn't.
Anyway, sorry to go off, but they drive me bananas!! I can't scream at them, so I just had to rant :) Thanks for listening!
