Good for you!!!! I would be sure to let your old pedi know EXACTLY why you are changing. I would ask her WHY she feels more qualified than the AAP and WHO to make breastfeeding recommendations?? Does she know of some research the rest of the world hasn't read? If she can't keep current on breastfeeding, what other important medical information is she unaware of???

So sorry, didn't see the letter you got from them. Please share the mailing address of this "University" so we can bombard them with literature regarding the benefits of extended breastfeeding.
