Re: Pediatrician criticized me for nursing *their response letter*
Wow!! I'm so sorry you had to go through all this!! My ped has never openly criticized me for breastfeeding, but he has admitted to a friend of mine that it grosses him out and asked her several times when she was going to stop?!!!
My daughter had openheart surgery at 15 months. When I told him I would definately continue nursing until after she was recovered from surgery he was openly shocked.
Even the specialists in the CICU where she had her surgery weren't educated enough to realize that breastmilk is a clear liquid. They didn't let me give her bm till after a certain period and even then didn't let me nurse her for several days. I was not happy!! All I wanted to do was comfort my baby in the most basic way!!
