Okay as most of you know I just moved to small town Iowa. My dh and I took our daughter to her 1 year check up. He is not very supportive of bfing past a year he thinks I should wind it down lol. Well the dr asked me if we have switched her from formula to milk. My husband butted in and said no she is still nursing. This nice male dr started smiling he said that's great keep going as long as you can. And told my husband how much healthier kids are when they are breastfed until they want to stop lol. I almost *&@# my pants. I mean I find a diehard probfing doctor in small town IOWA for real.

This was our first appointment lol I was expecting the worst because he is a young male doctor I figured he wouldn't know anything about breastfeeding. Much to my suprise and delight I was wrong. My husband hasn't mentioned winding down again which is great.

He was young? There's hope for the new generation of doctors, I guess. At least some of them. ;-)
