My DH on the other hand, is %100 behind me bfing when our next one *He adopted DD as his own so she's OURS* comes along, but is a teensy bit wierded out over CLW.
Of course, I have him converted to CD, HB, co sleeping, AP Babywearing and all that other stuff, CLW will be a piece of cake
It was funny, his dad was going on about how hard it will be for him to study with a newborn in the house keeping him up at all hours of the night.
He goes "Dad, We'll be co-sleeping and Mo will be nursing, Sleep deprivation won't be an issue"
FIL is like "Well during the day, the baby will cry"
DH is like "Look, I'll have more of a problem studying with a TODDLER in the house than a newborn"
I think he's a little ambivalent about bfing past infancy, but will certainly follow my lead. I figure we'll keep it up for as long as both DD and I are happy with nursing. I have no doubt that he'll be supportive of that.
We have had some issues around nightweaning - when I just couldn't take the night nursing any more during my pregnancy, but couldn't take the crying either and would give in and nurse, dh got quite annoyed with me. He doesn't care how long I nurse ds, though - although I definitely want ds to wean sooner rather than later, dh thinks it's my body, my decision.

A college friend who was in town came over the other day. He said, "if you want to be impressed with this chick, just watch her nurse both kids at once! She's amazing. "
He wasn't always this supportive. But when he saw the difference in our baby when she was on formula versus when she was on 100% breastmilk, it made a believer out of him. He's probably the most outspoken breastfeeding advocate I've ever met! I think his support and outspokenness (is that a word?) has helped the wives of his friends to breastfeed longer than they would have otherwise.
We also had problems in the beginning. DD was a tongue-thruster, and beat me bloody at her first nursing session post-partum. While I healed, we had to pump and feed her with the SNS. I pumped, DH would put the SNS together, and feed her with it hanging from the bill of his baseball cap. Wonderful!
