Re: Pediatrician criticized me for nursing past one year
I just have to say to follow what you know is best. Always question. Even the best Dr's make mistakes and the advice you were given makes me cringe. Even about the soy milk. I have BIG reservations about giving children soy milk in quantity. We are all so exposed to soy products we are already on overload.
And keep in mind that you are now giving your Jack the "Parting Gift". Breastmilk will now really benefit him in terms of immunity and fatty acitds and stuff. I have been so thankful this last year (my ds is just turning 2) that through all the teething, stomach upsets and all, that I always knew he was getting a square meal nutritionally thru my milk.
Keep up the good work, and keep following your mommy heart!
