Tell him that your breastfeeding is your business and you'll thank him to keep his opinions about it to himself. Remind him that the AAP recommends breastfeeding to AT LEAST 12 months and the WHO recommends AT LEAST 2 years.
As long as your baby is growing and doing well, tell him to shove it.

I'm a little firecracker today, I had a bad day at work so you may not want to actually tell your Ped. to shove it, ok? But you get the idea.
thanks mama.

and yeah, jack is in the 75th percentile for height and weight, so i think he's doing fine. the thing is, she kept saying how healthy, happy, and great he looks. i wanted to be like, "uh yeah! he's a happy breastfed baby!!"
