This woman really beats all that I have ever seen...Today the health department called to ask how I am doing with my loaner pump. My mother tells me that "Most women are weaning their babies at Kaeleb's age". He is only 8 months old for the love of Pete. I tell her that not most of the women that I know and her response...."I am talking about more than your little circle of 10 friends". She is talking about you guys cause I only know two other people irl that nurse or nursed. I told her that my online buddies numbered a great deal more than 10 and that millions of women worldwide nurse their 3 year olds! She again asked me (I have heard this soooo many times) "Well, your not nursing full time, so you are going to stop at a year, right". I don't know if I am or not....gonna ask that in another thread...but what does she care? It's not as if I am nursing HER. I know what her problem is....Dh and I won't let her keep Kaeleb (I am not one of those mother's that needs a break from her children...not trying to offend there cause I know that sometimes a break is certainly called for...I just have never needed one) and she thinks that if I wean at a year then she can keep him...NOT...this is a woman who thinks I am crazy cause I don't smoke (and won't allow others to) around my child. Who knows what she would do when I am not around.
