 Girl dont listen to your dad and DH they are men..what do they know about breastfeeding..your giving your baby the best nutrients that you can give him or her..continue to breastfeed!!

My hubby thinks they are uncomfortable with your breastfeeding and are trying to make excuses.
Either way babies are time consuming. pumping from personal experience is more time consuming. They don't get a say in how you feed your child.
Keep up the good work mama

If your family thinks bf is a pain they need to think of the money you are saving. Bf is convenient especially during a storm. It's been proven to be.healthier. I agree that bf a chance to bond with baby while relaxing. Your honey can take care of himself for.20 mins. What's wrong with any of that?

Tell the big babies that the true little baby takes priority over them. My ex was like that. I hated it, my husband now was 100% supportive in the bf our 3 children.

I agree with everyone else. Just ignore them and continue doing what you know is best.

Wow!! I kinda want to smack your husband. I would be sitting down with him and telling him that it's his job to support you. Grrr!!! Whether he likes you bf or not doesn't matter. I'm sorry Momma. I know how hard it is when our SO aren't our biggest cheerleaders (My ex-db). 

Seriously, have you tried talking to your dh about him being unsupportive?
