I haven't been nursing for several months now, but I had a mini lactivism moment today. My ds Early Intervention case worker and his speech lady were here today. His speech lady comes once a week and she was doing some more evaluation type of things so that the EI person could get a good reading of how ds is progressing. They brought out some flash cards and ds started to try to name the pictures. She showed him one of a baby bottle and ds just looked at it. She kept asking him what it was and finally he said "doll". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I giggled a bit and said he probably didn't know what it was since he had never used one. The look on both of their faces was absolutely priceless. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> The EI asked "Then what did he use?" and I just laughed and then she said "Oh...oh...oh, he was breastfed!" I told her yes, for 17 months. They both just looked at me and were just almost flabergasted he nursed that long. Of course I don't think it was long enough. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> I was able to tell them about the AAP and WHO recomendations on it and could attribute it to his over all good health. Hopefully, they will keep that in mind and pass it along. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Lol that is so cute. I am just curious, did they still mark it wrong? I have heard bad stories about tests like that even when the baby has only been breastfed and never seen a bottle that they still expect them to recognize one and know what it is for.

4 yr. old DD's standard reply to any bottle or bottle comment is "Babies love boobies!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Nah, they weren't really marking him today. They were just seeing how he was doing since begining with the thearpy about a month ago so they did more eval style things. If it had been a real eval I probably would have asked them to ask him something else. I have gotten to know the EI people here very well since my other ds worked with them until he aged out of the system. They know me well enough to know I will question everything! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

A bottle shouldn't be one of the things that a child is expected to recognize!
