Unhappy Gitting razzed about nursing passed a year...grr *vent*

i am very proud that on Sat july 19th my #2 will be a year old ... and very proud to say i was able to the whole time this time around and it nice the fact while i there is no knocking on my door



I am now starting to git really strange looks or nasty comments said to me when people they ask if he is drinking milk yet ..... i am normally very nice , tell them "no" and try to quietly go on my way (which is easier said then done for me at times ... i am a BOLD in your face type )


I love the fact when someone points out he has teeth (11 of them) and i should have stopped nursing him when he started getting them"because he will bite you "...like he is going to come after me like this to nurse

he got his first 2 together the day he turned 4mos old, he has bit me once ... i did not even notice till i seen blood all over his face *i take Anticoagulants*


We have tried to milk... he sucked less then 1/2oz and chucked the sippy back at us ... same story with Next step

We/I talked to our Peds and he is all for #2 DS & me to *"nursing" till he dus not want it anymore

*Pump and put it in a sippy cup , which i am competently ok with (I pumped and sippy cuped #1DS milk from the day he turned 5mos till he was 10mos.... i was told bottles where evil and nursing would mess he teeth up 1st time mama at the time



I want to find a shirt that says something like
"still enjoying mama's milk, just deal with it "

I want Advocacy wear for my #2 DS !

Why is so hard for people to Respect my nursing relationship

Dd is 11 months and I nip any chance I get. I welcome looks and comments as a chance to educate people. A "friend" of mine recently made a comment that assumed I would be weaning at 1 year and I asked her why she was so interested in what my baby eats, since she didn't seem to be overly concerned with her dd eating all sorts of junk food.

DD CLW at 4 years old (2 mths after i had DS)
DS EBF now @ almost 11 mths old and he will CLW

Hey if someone has a comment, i may say something back with a smile and educate but it's really not their concern. Once i was nursing dd she was 1.5yrs old and got a comment to go to the restroom and me and DH said. "You are welcome to enjoy your meal in the toilet, we will be dining at the table...." (with a smile) The woman continued and said "You can cover" and i looked right at her and said "If you don't want to see put a blanket over your head or turn it...PLEASE stop harassing us or I will get the manager thanks, now enjoy your meal"

OP, I love your post w/ all the smileys in it to tell the story. Don't let the naysayers get you down. You're doing something so great for your child, just keep right on doing it. (And come here to vent anytime if you need to.)

Re: Gitting razzed about nursing passed a year...grr *vent*

Congrats Mama!!

We've been a nursing trio for just over a year as of last Tuesday. Not too many comments yet. I actually asked my mom why she wasn't giving me a hard time - she said she learned with my ODD to keep her mouth shut on the topic.

I don't tend to do too much NIP unless I have a 2nd adult with me. It's hard to tandem nurse and be somewhat covered (as I prefer for myself) w/ 2 squirmy nursers. When I do NIP one eats while the other stands at my knee and complains.
