OIK - I have posted many times what a supporter I am of breastfeeding. I nursed my oldest until he was 13.5 mths old, and at 16.5mths I am still nursing my youngest.
Not only do I enjoy the time I have with him while we are nursing, I know that the health benefits (for both him and I) are amazing. I have no idea when I will stop nursing, I never set a concrete time in my head, I just set my minimum goal for 6mths. Once I hit that, I take it 1 day at a time and see what works for our family. Since Kyle only really nurses after morning wake up and before bed, the odd time overnight, or before a nap if I am around, it is still working for us.
I was absolutely flabbergasted when I watched this vlog and heard what comment a PEDIATRICIAN made to this mother about nursing her 13mth old daughter. I really cannot believe that it would come out of anyone's mouth - let alone a medical professional that must KNOW about the health benefits...
So, here it is - feel free to watch the video (approx 15 minutes in length) and leave a comment with your thoughts.
