NO ONE in my family nurses and they think I'm weird for doing it. IT IS hard doing it without support and that rang true with my first because I gave up, quitting was the only thing any of them supported me in. Now that DD is 9 months old, everyone keeps saying stuff like "You better stop now before she doesnt let you" and "isnt she a little old for that??"
It drives me NUTS. But that isn't going to stop me!
