Re: my Dh and extended BF

When oldest DD was in preschool she never caught the things that the other kids did. She never got rotavirus, chicken pox (even though I put her in the tub w/her infected cousin), foot and mouth, nothing! Even now she rarely gets sick. In fact, I couldn't give that kid the pox until she was 6!

In contrast, I had to wean DD #2 at 18 months because I became pg and it was soooo painful. Her immunities are just not like the other two!
just want to say I know the benifites and I did have him read the sticky...(I think that is why he decided child lead weaning is better)

also though some kids/babies are just sicker then oldest has hardly been sick her whole life (she's 3 1/2 now) and my youngest on the other hand seems to catch everything (and like I said she's still nursing)

and he knows that it's not up to him, I told him in Feb it wasn't up to him
ticked him off but he's dealing with it
