Re: my Dh and extended BF
My DH is constantly having to change his way of thinking with this LO. He has 2 from a previous marriage that are in their twenties. He and his first wife didn't do any reading or research on child rearing. He was busy working to feed the family and his wife just wasn't really interested (in reading or child rearing).
He wasn't so sure about the CD thing, now he wouldn't think of putting a sposie on his little girl (and he's a mostly SAHD so he does most of the diapering and all of the laundry). He has expressed some doubts in the past about BF a toddler (before she was born), but I'm quite sure that now he'll have a different opinion when we get there.
Good luck with your DH,
Mommy to one beautiful baby girl and married to the best Dad ever
