Hi, my DD is almost 11 months old and we have a wonderful breastfeeding relationship. I pump twice a day at work on the days I work (4 days a weekS) so that she has BM while she is at daycare. When she is home with me all day she still nurses every 2-3 hours, sometimes more and wakes 2-3 times during the night to nurse as well. She is finally eating some solids consistently, but at daycare she is still drinking a lot of BM, which is great. My issue is...I plan on BFing for at least two years, so we are nowhere near weaning, it makes me sad even thinking about not nursing. I have been getting so annoyed because now that she is nearing 12 months people keep asking when she is going to wean. I just politely say "No time soon, I plan on nursing her until at least 2 years, it is the best for her immune system". But inside it is so annoying, how do I let that go and not feel insulted when people ask me that because surely the question will come up more and more frequently as she gets older!
