Re: Did your mom breastfeed?
My brother and I are 18 months apart and we were both bf and cd'd. It was definately not the "in" thing to do in the 80's but I am glad she did. I was bf for 17months and Im not sure about my brother. My husband was not bf and his mom doesnt really see the importance of it and I sometimes feel like she resents my decision to bf (As if I am being a baby hog and the only reason I bf is so that she doesnt get to give the baby a bottle.....come on please )
My grandmother is very pro bf and always tells me how proud she is of my decision to bf. She is a little old country lady and has told me a million times "Cow's milk is for calves, human milk is for babies" I love her for all her support!
