Dd bio-dad has decied he wants weekend visits. (He left when I got pregnant and just came back around, she's 11 mo) I said no bc she is still nursing every 2-3 hours. So I hired an attorney and we will be going to court. I don't want my child robbed of her love of nursing and all the benefits of it. Anyone else ever go through this? Any advice?

I hope not! My goal is for her to self wean. I explained it to biodad and he agreed. His mother is an LPN and totally screwed it up. Said I shouldn't have ever bf, "formula is made by drs and is better"
He doesn't really want to see her anyway, just fight me.

I've heard of special rules with visitation & breastfeeding. From what I understand the courts will work with you & breastfeeding. They might just have him come see you two while you are still nursing until you wean.

Excuse my language, but his mother MUST be a dumbass. I can't even wrap my mind around her logic.

That's what I assumed. All of my friends are telling me otherwise, NONE of them bf. My lawyer said it will probably be a year before we go to court anyway. I highly doubt he will try and see her during that time. Wonder if that will play any part?

Uhhh...yeah. she also thinks dd will be a lesbian now. This woman also constantly sets her disabled gd on kitchen counters only to hav e her fall off. But of course she's in the medical field so she knows EVERYTHING.

What???

1.) Why does she think your DD will be a lesbian?
2.) Who the hell would let her watch their child if she's that irresponsible? That's ridiculous.

Wow! Praying about your situation. It sounds like bio dad may be getting his act together, Im hoping his mom doesnt have an influence on him, she sounds like a troubled woman.

They may grant visitation for daytime (or even overnights after a year) and ask that you pump and send milk.  aehanrahan has some experience with this stuff.

Apparently, allowing a girl to nurse as long as them want makes them have a breadt fixation, therefore....a lesbian. Haha.. I was in shock....
