you nursing your toddler? My OB totally gave me grief yesterday when she found out I am nursing my 21 month old son yet!! She said I better have him weaned by midpregnancy because it will be better for me nutritionally and if he will totally regress if he is still nursing when the baby is born. I just smiled and nodded. I knew I could have stuck up for myself at that point, but did not want to get into it with her. My son is healthy and happy. I think forcing weaning on him would cause more emotional harm than the regressing she thinks he will go through if he is still nursing when the baby is born. I guess this is kinda a vent about my OB. Luckily I see an awesome NP that runs a breastfeeding support group and nursed all her kids until they were 2+. Interested in any discussions you have had with your OB/MW and any supportive advice you can give me!
