Oh, and we once had a ped from Ghana, who was absolutely thrilled that I was BFing Liam - he kept saying "BF babies are sooo much healthier, we almost never have them get sick. But of course, we don't tell the mothers that. We ask, 'are you nursing or bottle feeding?' and if they say bottle, we say hmmm. Ok. But nursing is great!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="Mothering Forum" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
He was still freaked that Emily was nursing at 2 years old, and that I was tandem nursing.<br><br>
Had a ped from India who was absolutely against nursing and tandem nursing, which surprised me til I found out her medical training was from the US <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="Mothering Forum" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:
I am from Chile, and 99% of women breastfeed at birth. My dad (born in 1950) was breastfed for 6 years. That was the norm back then, now, unoficially, what I have observed, is that the "norm" is a year. Most mamas don't wean before 12 months, this is from what I have seen there now. It's very breastfeeding-friendly, everyone NIP's and it's seen as a very normal thing. Chile has a lot of poverty, therefore a lot of women don't even have the choice of buying artificial baby milks
