you need to figure out whats more important nursing your baby or dating that guy? im not trying to be mean but obviously he is not mature even to handle you have kids and breastfeeding them and i wouldnt want to date someone that has asked me to stop doing whats best for my child.

I started dating my boyfriend when my daughter was over 2 and I still breastfed. He never tried to get me to stop because he knew it was not his place to. He might have not be completely comfortable with it but he knew that it was just because it was something new to him. It would have put up a red flag to me if he tried to get me to stop nursing my daughter.

I was in this situation myself, and I told the guy that when he has kids he can parent them, but to leave mine alone. And whoever said she should be cut off because she's almost 2, you're nuts. Older babies aren't worthy of the best nutrients available? Whatever.

print him off some breastfeeding literature. Ask him to read it then explain to him that if he cant understand &support your decision then you cant be in a relationship w/him.

you need to just end it now IMO. he has no right to say anything about how you parent your children, theyre not his, and its creepy to think he wants to step right in already. how long have you even known this guy?
