Re: my Dh and extended BF

My DH is constantly having to change his way of thinking with this LO. He has 2 from a previous marriage that are in their twenties. He and his first wife didn't do any reading or research on child rearing. He was busy working to feed the family and his wife just wasn't really interested (in reading or child rearing).

He wasn't so sure about the CD thing, now he wouldn't think of putting a sposie on his little girl (and he's a mostly SAHD so he does most of the diapering and all of the laundry). He has expressed some doubts in the past about BF a toddler (before she was born), but I'm quite sure that now he'll have a different opinion when we get there.

Good luck with your DH,
Amy

Re: my Dh and extended BF

I'm sorry you guys don't agree on extended breastfeeding. I really hope that you are able to work things out in a manner that still allows your DD to nurse. She is so tiny.

Reading posts like these make me realize just how lucky I am. My DH fully supports CLW. Our ds will be 2 in a few weeks and he still nurses all the time. It would crush him if I cut him off.

Re: my Dh and extended BF

My DH is the same way, although his magic number is 15 months! It's b/c he wants his boobs back... I informed him they are MY boobs thank you and I loan them out as I see fit! I also let him know that just b/c the baby stops nursing does NOT mean that they are automatically yours... So we'll be nursing right on thru to college with this LO! LOL!

My DH is very supportive. I'm still nursing my 20 month old. It is EVERYONE else in my life that keeps asking when I'm going to stop. It drives me nuts!

I agree Mama. I am so lucky. DH loves that he nurses and would never dream of trying to tell me when to stop.

To the OP and other mom's in the situation. Try to educate him and if that doesn't work well then too bad for him. When he starts nursing then he can make choices involving your breasts.

It sounds to me like it's just typical man behavior

I really don't see why your dh has a say in the matter at all. Mine certainly doesn't.

Re: my Dh and extended BF

I am sorry you are dealing with this with your DH.
My DH was always supportive of extend bfding.
He knows how important it was for me to let them wean themselves.
I hope you two can come together on this one.
GL mamma.
