Re: Pediatrician criticized me for nursing past one year

I would try to find a new doc. I mean if you don't agree or can't trust her why would you call or want to call in an emergency. I have a 2 1/2 yr old still nursing. Are kids nutritional needs being met by nursing? After a year not totally, but its a liquid and there's some good stuff in there, like great anti-bodies. Plus your kiddo is eating FOOD. FOOD plus BREASTMILK = HEALTHY. How do you think millions of people now populate the earth??
Many docs are on the whole milk kick. There are many other ways to get those nutrients. My kids are allergic to cow milk and we do fine with some rice milk and some soy milk. I was worried abt all soy because that's big allergen too.
Sorry I'm trying not to get on my soapp box too much, this is a subject I feel strongly about!
Any way make sure he's eating well and getting liquids (breast milk and water) and at some point introduce some type of milk. I think you are doing great! BTJMHO
