So when I am talking to her she is somewhat clueless as to the trials and tribulations I am going through (all normal).
I get the impression that the only person that breastfed for longer then a few weeks in my family was my cousin (who admittedly is a bit of a black sheep in the family).
Does anyone else have a grandmother or someone that they are close to that you would think would have breastfed but never did?
My grandmother says that with here first she gave her diluted (with water) milk. Can you imagine just giving a child cows milk under a year?
