I had to run in to town tonight and see the p.a. at my doctor's practice and he saw in my charts that I was breastfeeding so we have to work around meds with that. On the way out he asked me how long I planned to and I said for awhile. Then he told me about how his wife was still bfing their 20mo old and his mom bfed him for 2 1/2 years. So I said the shortest I had gone was two years with one of mine and he thought that was great.
So much better than the run-in I had a few years ago with an er doc who thought there was no benefit after six months.
