Ok I have been here before, pissing and moaning about my coworkers and their weird anti nursing comments (I am a nurse FYI) So again I was in the ER and the fact that I am "still" nursing came up. (I had to pump) Which brought about a wonderful conversation on when you should feed kids solid food. Almost all of them said at at least 2 months if not sooner. I was agast. I mean if you don't wish to nurse FINE but you don't feed babies at 2 months... AGH!!!
One guy had a premie and they feed her regual baby food a 2 weeks! So she would sleep at night. Are these people insane??? And these are medical people!
You know what they need in nursing schools and medical schools... proper infant nutrition classes! It is terifying to know this is what is out there!

On a good not a fellow co work is still nursing her baby at 9 months. (The only one!) verytime I see here I compliment her on it. She says she will stop at a year... I have time to work on her!

Horrifying! Reminds me why I almost never go to the dr. Nor do I take my kids. (Well, I do go to a homeopath, the dentist, and a shrink! Probably wouldn't need any of them as much either if I'd have been bfed for more than 3 mos! :LOL)
