My doctor is completely convinced that I need to wean my daughter (16m) because she thinks that it is stressing my body too much. She says she is overall very supportive of women nursing as long as they wish but says there are exceptions. I am dealing with hypothyroidism and she says that my body is putting all of its energy into making the milk and that is why I have all of these hypothyroid symptoms (hair loss, etc)! I am certainly getting another opinion, but just wondering: has anyone heard this before?
