|I agree with the pp about gently offering information to your OB so that they don't give false information to someone who doesn't know better.|
|Women who nurse their infants for six months or more lose a significant amount of the mineral calcium from their bones, according to a new report. Although most women make up for that loss shortly thereafter|
Just to point out, the term "Nazi" is NEVER a form of endearment. Its actually a very offensive term to use for anyone other than Nazis.
it doesnt seem like this OB was considering any issues such as the previous posted mentioned..she just doesn't seem educated about bf'ing. Good for you, OP, for wanting to set the record straight.
There are definitely two sides to every story, I just read a thread on here not too long ago about a mother having major difficulties with the very thing your OB mentioned, about your son possibly regressing once the baby is born. Anyway, I just wanted to point that out, it is obviously something that works for some and not for others and I guess it all depends on the child/children involved. This particular lady was having one heck of a time nursing her toddler son and her infant, it got to where the toddler son was drinking all the milk and leaving none for the infant and mom was not able to keep up enough of a supply for both. And the toddler son did NOT want to be weaned, he wanted breast milk all the more after the baby was born. The poor lady really had A LOT to deal with, with the milk supply problem and the toddler throwing tantrums cause he demanded breast milk plus she was fighting the flu. I may have to go see if I can find that thread again just to see out of curiosity if she was ever able to resolve the issue. I sure wouldn't want to be in her shoes, what a horrible ordeal!
wow, i'm sorry if I have offended anyone, that truly and sincerely was not my intention! Didn't even think about it as I typed it as I don't have a single racist cell in my body. I am humbled and embarrassed. She is basically calling her a nursing dictator. Just wanted to clear that up so no one gets the wrong idea.
