BF'ing vent Amanduuuh Due March 17; 1 child; 1 angel baby; Texas 4620 posts

I'm just sick of hearing how I need to stop BF'ing DD. She just turned 1 two weeks ago and it seems like eeeeveryone I know is pressuring me to take her off the boob. My cousin even said, "Well in your case I'll let you till 18 months but not after that." Uuuuhhh what?! I know I'm doing what's best for her. I just get sick of all the negativity. Like, why does it matter? My kid, my boobs, my time. It in no way effects anyone else. My friends are annoyed because I can't go out drinking with them- idc. I can't leave DD for more than a few hours hours because she still likes to nurse every 3-4 hours during the day and pacifies most of the night. It's really just making me more of a hermit.




End vent

I hated that too when DS had just turned 1!! I had to wean him because my doc is afraid of preterm labor, butttt I think we will be going back when he is 18 months and new baby is born, as long as he is interested!

Lol I guess! I just stared at her when she said it. I keep telling my family I'm going to BF till she's 5 just to freak them out.

WTF is your cousin going to do to make you stop breast feeding? I'm sorry ignore them. I'm glad I never had that problem DD is 19 months and still breast feeding.

I'm hoping to make it to 2 years. If she wants to wean after that I'm okay with it. My ultimate goal is 3. Good job on 19 months!!

First of all, congrats on making it a year! That is awesome beyond words and I'm so envious!
Screw what everyone else says or thinks! It's not like you can't pump and store a little milk if you do decide you want a night out, but that's up to you and you alone.
... How can someone hate on your for being an awesome mom? Lmao.

Same with DS. Everyone keeps asking me when I'm going to stop, except my MIL and SIL. My family just thinks it's "not normal" to still be breastfeeding him. I keep getting, "So he's only on cow's milk now, right?" Um no.
Even DS's pedi gave me a weird look when I told him I'm still only giving him breastmilk (along with table food, of course) :roll:

Omg girl it's so annoying!! My family is always telling me TO give the boob and they know I'm trying to wean him. It's so stupid for others to tell you what to do I just ignore it

We don't have a goal just to continue until she's ready to wean. Congrats to you for making it to 12 months :)

Her pedi also acted like it was weird. He was like, "well I guess if its not bothering you, you can still do it. She's only doing it out of habit now, not necessity." I just rolled my eyes. She won't take cow milk and I don't want to give it to her. My mom BF'd my brother till he was almost 3! Even she gives me shit!!

Thank you!! I would love to pump milk for her but my boobs don't respond to a pump. I never get a letdown. I've tried everything so she only gets it from the tap lol.
