|And to be honest, I enjoy having the doctor praise me for being such a great mother when he sees how smart and healthy DS is compared to most children|

DS is 14 months and I have taken him to all of his visits so far. His doctor is very non-vax friendly, supports EBF, no vitamins, our diet choices, no fluoride and all that good stuff. Seeing him isn’t a chore for me, as it seems to be with some others, especially those with pushy doctors who don’t fully support their choices.
Why do I bother to take DS to the doctor? I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself if he turned out to have some kind of heart defect or other health problem that could have been picked up. I want to make sure his soft spot isn’t closing too fast or slow, I like to know for sure that he is growing normally without all the guesswork.

Most moms bf now anyways.
|Only 29 percent of all mothers, and 19 percent of black mothers, breast-feed until their babies are 6 months old - a crucial time period, according to the report.|
|Not around here! Actually, only a small percentage of moms in the USA continue bf'ing after 6 weeks and the percentage goes down the older babies get.
I've only ever seen one mom bf'ing in public in my town of 15,000. The only friends I have that bf are the ones I met online

I honestly don't know the statistics, but I was discusing this with one of my IRL friends who ebfs a 17 month old. She was telling me her sister confided she feels like a freak, because she ffs and so many people bf now. She tried bfing her 4th child, but her dh got angry with her for doing it, because he said "its weird"
