Re: You're still nursing!!!

I had THE FUNNIEST comment yesterday....

My neighbor asked me if my 3yr old was eating solid foods yet? I said "oh yeah, hes been eating solid foods for a couple of years now". Then she says, "oh, then he's all done breastfeeding?"

As if you can't eat solid foods AND breastfeed.

So, she thought, all this time, that he was JUST breastfeeding.

Sigh...

I really, honestly, in my heart of hearts believe that most people are simply uneducated. They just don't understand how important it is. As long as people are being decent about it and I have the time, I really try to educate people about the benefits. If they're not being decent, then I get a bit snarky. Or, if I don't have the energy, I just "smile and wave".
