Breastfeeding your choice? GROSS

Hello moms, how many twenty something year old moms breastfeed? If so how long and your reason for stopping?

I have a 2-1/2 year old ds who weaned at 18 months and a 6mon old ds who's going strong.


Something that irritates me is a family friend, he thinks its gross to see me nursing because "if I want to see a boob its going to be me sucking it" it makes me gag men are so vulger some times, but I just chalk that up to immaturity.

How old is everyone, and what's the craziest thing you've experienced from people about nursing.

I have a 4yo who weaned at 18mos. And currently nursing my DD who is almost 19months. I don't plan on weaning anytime soon. I get the rude comments mostly from female friends and family. I don't care anymore to hear it since I know what I am doing is best for her.

Dd only nursed for 4mnths, ds1 nursed for 2mnths and ds2 is 15mnths and still nursing. the older two i was very uneducated and stopped to go back to work and because of a wrong latch. i educatedyself with my youngest and he will most likely self wean when he wants.

some people are such jerk-offs when it comes to bfing.

I'm 30 and live in WV. I breastfed my son until he self weaned at a year. No one ever said a judge mental word to me about breastfeeding. Pretty much every woman I know breastfed.
