If married, or dating, how did your other half feel about it?
Thanks again you girls have been great!
i found that eventually if you just keep doing what you want to do without letting the negative comments get to you, family members just drop them. arm yourself with alot of great info and sarcastic comebacks
when i was dating, my 2nd was still nursing, he was just over 2. i made a point of nursing in front of my date very soon into our dating because i thought if he has a problem with me nursing, i need to now know so i can say see ya! well, that was 7 years ago and i married him i think he has been impressed over the years to see that my parenting ways can work and so he's not critical at all.
