Re: Pediatrician criticized me for nursing past one year
I never discussed nursing my oldest dd with the ped once she turned one. Dd2 also nursed past a year, and it was discussed in the context of her growth issues, but the ped and her GI never said there was no nutritional value. Just that they felt she needed to wean in order to eat more solids, as clearly wasn't gaining any weight from just nursing. She is two now and weaned herself around 15 months, but when we were at the ped a few weeks ago week we saw a new doctor who asked if I was still nursing her. I thought it was nice that she thought I might be still nursing dd2, was just feeling miserable and snuggling me while dd3 nursed.
