My initial goal was to one year, but now when I think of having to stop (even though a year is so far away), I get upset. So now I think I may go beyond a year. I just enjoy it so much and can't imagine not bfing. My MIL is so unsupportive of bfing that it is beyond annoying. She never breastfed and apparantely has never heard of anyone bfing past 3 months. What?? My mom mentioned to her yesterday that I plan on bfing beyond a year and she looked at me like I was crazy. She said that the baby wouldn't even be taking a bottle anymore by that point so why would I want to continue to nurse. She even told me that nursing that long is a terrible habit! Oh Em Gee!!! This woman is going to make me flip my lid! Honestly, I think she wants the baby to spend the night with her so bad and it drives her crazy that she can't since I'm nursng. How selfish is that?
So I wanted to find out from my fellow mama's, how long do you plan on doing it?
