I took my DS to his 1yr check up and everything went well.. but she asked if i was still BFing .. I told her yes ma'm..  I have never let on or said anything about wanting to wean.. cause I believe in him weaning himself.  But, .. she said that it was great and that I should  keep BFing thru the sick season.. and about 4 or 5 months I "should" start weaning him!!!   All I could do was just look at her like she was stupid or sumthing..  lol  I never said anything back .. she just proceded to keep talking. I just can't get over that she would say that!  I've always told them that I wanted to BF atleast untill he was 2.. but if he is not ready then I will not push him.. that was just a goal!   Sorry.. I just needed to to get this out of my mind.. it was bothering me..lol

She probably was. Doesn't mean you need to pay attention.

Smile and nod.  And then find another pedi.......if you really feel like you need one.

They have 3 different pedi's that attend there and he has seen all 3.. and I think this last one is not the one I will keep attending..  Not saying she's a bad one.. but just not the right one for me.. She kinda made me feel like everything i was telling her or talking to her about..  it was like..  she's heard it all a million times and she just wants to do what she has to do and get out!  I felt rushed by her i guess.. I guess it could have been me IDK!

Maybe she meant don't wean until after the flu season was over. Either way do what you want... lol.
