Quoting Mrs. Galeforce:" I had this girl, not even going to call my friend asked me today if I still breast fed, while I was breastfeeding ... [snip!] ... Shes also on drugs im pretty sure. So gonna go ahead and NOT hang out with her ever again. Its been a long time since I have."


Well that isn't HORRIBLE....I have heard worse from my family doctor. She thinks that anyone who bf's past a year is doing it for their own selfish benefit, not because the child actually still wants to bf lol. My DD is 17 months and still breastfeeds...she's on the b**b right now as we speak lol.



I am starting to get the "She's too old to be breastfeeding" shit from ppl now too.

:!: My OB tells you to stop nursing if/when you become pregnant again. Thankfully that issue didn't come up for me because I would not have stopped, especially if LO was under 12 months.

Quoting Supafly★TKO:" She believes him, though. I just told her that even one nursing session gives nutrients and antibodies that formula doesn't have and left it at that. "


She probably doesn't want to BF and is blaming her decision on medical advice.

It sounds like you were already defensive about the topic and made it bigger than it was. Sounds like she didn't know how long you can breastfeed and asked a question.



I didn't know the national average was 4 yrs old. I always thought it was gross to breastfeed past 1 1/2 and that it wasn't normal. I wasn't educated about it all. Though I wasn't able to breastfeed anyways with either kid. If I had been I still pbly would have stopped at 1 1/2.

A friend of ours lost her shit when I told her my LO was still breastfeeding at like 22 months-ish because her pedi had told her that breastfeeding after two was harmful and dangerous.

I had a girl tell my "your Tits are for your man not your kids". Than her friend said I was gonna get my child drunk from a glass of wine I had 5 hours before since all alcohol stays in your system for 30 days. Than they went on for awhile about how sick it is to BF. People are just so ignorant now a days.

Omg...I hope you laughed in their face! How dumb!

I was a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding and at the reception, I was getting water and some guy asked me if I was getting an alcoholic drink (or something) and I said I was just drinking water cause I have a 9 month old that I breast feed. Then like 20 minutes later there were several people all gathered around and I heard him say something like "and there's people talking about breastfeeding, what the hell" I gave him a dirty look. a*****e, you asked!!

My grandma asked me this morning, "You're not still nursing him, are you?" as if I shouldn't be... he turned 1 a week ago. Eh, I just let it roll off my back. I'm proud of our breastfeeding relationship. :)

I think you're just being super sensitive about it, OP. She didn't even say anything shitty to you.



I just don't get why anyone has issues with breastfeeding. It's natural and has been around forever. You think women were giving their babies a bottle of formula hundreds of years ago?



A girl asked me if breastfeeding felt like peeing. Stupidest question ever. :P

Me and her father in law told her off. Than after that she just talked more shit. So I laughed and I was like I love when someone I don't even know has to talk about me all night. My b**bs my choice b***h. It's just who the f**k thinks b**bs were made for men. She has 3 kids too.
