Re: Pediatrician criticized me for nursing *their response letter*
Side note to support nursing past one year of age: in our house four people caught the stomach virus. They were violently throwing up all night long and diarrheaing for four days. Two of the people were my three year old daughter and husband who we were in close contact with. Guess who did not get it..... me (who's pregnant and immune system is in hyperdrive) and my 20 month old who nurses!! (who was obviously being protected by my immune system being in hyperdrive). Thank God I still nursed because taking care of three vomiting and diarrheaing people would have been way worse than two! Noone can tell me my dd#2 didn't receive some kind of health benefit from nursing past 1 year of age.
