Re: Was told 3 times today to stop BF

Yep, I'm with the others. Your breasts, your baby, your business. You do what feels right for you. It seems you want to keep nursing, and it seems like your child needs to, so keep on keeping on.

As for the doctors, most of them know next to nothing about breastfeeding. And their blanket answer to everything is to "just wean." It's easier to say that than to actually educate themselves on how milk production works, and what's REALLY safe and not.

I always, always go with what Dr. Hale says. If Hale says it's safe, I believe him. He actually understands the processes, unlike everyone else.
