How do I deal with family hating on me breastfeeding my 13 month old?
Everyone was CRAZY supportive about me breastfeeding my daughter until she was a year old. And I had planned on weaning her right after her first bday, but she screamed and was miserable and i was upset and sore.
I realised i was only weaning her because everyone I know thinks its "gross" and "she is too old" to continue breastfeeding.
After I realised that i talked to my husband. He told me he wanted me to continue to breastfeed but he didnt say anything before because it was up to me to decide. So with the 3 of us on board we are continuing to breastfeed. But it sucks that i dont have the support i used to. in fact every one is anti-supportive (is that a word?) i dont see how its gross to breastfeed my daughter still, but i cant seem to make them understand.
i dont want the "well thats their problem" or "as long as you 3 are for it." comments. Its important to me to get them to come around. Or at least to give it my best shot
