I went to see my OB/GYN today for a checkup. Though he was completely supportive of my natural childbirth, he is an OB afterall and I always thought he was more or less mainstream.
He asked me about my cycle, and I told him I haven't had one because I am still nursing. He was so full of praise! He told me the best thing I will ever do for my child is to breastfeed her as long as I can. He talked about how breastfed babies have fewer ear infections, etc....all the things I already knew. It was just so nice to hear all of that coming from someone in the medical community. He encouraged me to keep going past two years, which was originally my goal.
I left his office feeling so happy. It was so nice to have my doctor not only support my extended breastfeeding but to actually commend me for it.
