Re: Help everyone is telling me to stop BF my almost 4month old

mama. Just stand your ground. I haven't read all the posts, but I agree that setting clear and firm boundaries is the way to go.

Babies are born to be breastfed.

I'd tell them that you will gladly stay out of their LIFE (aka- baby will not see them, you will not talk to them) until they are willing to accept YOUR decisions. UGH, sometimes I hate people!

Re: Help everyone is telling me to stop BF my almost 4month old

There's a whole lot of reasons to keep breastfeeding...one of them being that it is healthier for your child! Your son can't talk yet, so you have to do the speaking for him...I know it's hard sometimes, especially with family members, but stick to your guns! :-)

My son breastfed until he was a year and a half. I would have continued, but he lost interest. My daughter is due in a couple weeks and I'll let her nurse as long as she wants to, too.

I had lots of family members objecting to it (mostly on his side), and I'm a quiet/shy person so I had a hard time with it, but...it's your child, and you should do what you want to do regarding the feedings, you're his mother. Your mother-in-law had her chance to raise her children. :-)
