Just as doctors are apt to encourage BF if they or their partner did, so too will they encourage weaning at whatever age. And since babies don't need formula/bottle after 1 year, they don't *need* BF, according to some drs.
It is very difficult when your doctor, someone whom you're usually respect and look to for information gives out the wrong advice.
I'd say take a copy of the AAP's new guidelines w/ the relevant areas highlighted. There are some women who will think that this dr. knows what he/she is talking about and he/she should know the real story.
Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.
