Re: Aunt says feed him "real food" now????

I went through this with older relatives too. Thankfully my mom nursed us all to 2 years (and she is almost 70!) mom is so ahead of her time. My MIL started feeding dh peanut butter sandwiches at 6 weeks, so everyone is different.

I discovered that my relatives were not trying to get me to stop breastfeeding, they just looked at feeding the "real" food as an exciting milestone, and they wanted to be around for it. I think it is just one of those things they think is fun, not a statement on your nursing. like sitting and crawling etc.
