Re: Intervention to end BFing?!
I haven't read all the posts, but enough to get the general reaction. I say, put it in perspective...they care about you and want what's best for you. That being said, they are clearly uninformed about the benefits of breastfeeding and the recommendations of the AAP. I would be offended, but probably not say I could NEVER forgive them. I find it quite laughable, really. Get them some info, tell them you respectfuly decline their advice, and move on. You are doing what's best for you and your baby. It is sad that they can't respect your opinion, but stick to it. And, find some support from LLL, local playgroup, or whatever where you can BF without being judged. Good job taking care of that LO!!
