By "letting" me and ds breastfeed until 9 months now instead if 6.... what he doesn't know yet: ds WILL self wean but only after a year. I've shown him webpages stating bfing longer is beneficial but he wants an "accredited" source that's American..... the WHO isn't one he agrees with (which seems so dumb to me because we use their growth chart lol). He says i don't know how happy he is when he gets a bottle and I'm like i don't need to know because i see how relaxed and relieved he is when he snuggles in to nurse. Besides, i don't want bottles because he's starting solids soon, he can use a sippy instead!
Basically dh thinks he knows everything and he doesn't understand the problems with what he expects... like a birthday cake for ds's 6 month bday which he hasn't started solids yet! Btw, he says if i don't then he'll give it to ds when I'm at work. I'm getting very upset but the more upset i get the more he laughs and continues with other things he could do to upset me. He says I'm only looking at one side if the argument... like it's normal to give cake and ice cream to a baby! MIL gave dd ice cream at 9 months!!! I'm thinking i should find a sitter....
