    I hadn't considered that she might believe this. We are adopted so mum never breastfed. I guess I just presumed everyone knows breast is best. She was a Karitane after all! But yes, we are talking a loooong time ago now (40+ yrs)

    Totally agree with everything you said. I don't think mum would argue that ds doesn't want it, but it's more the suggestion that he doesn't NEED it (insert roll eyes face)
    By the way, can someone tell me how to put faces like the one in the quote?

    I agree. This is the tack I've used so far. But she just won't quit so I thought I might have to try something else. By the way, did you have a lotus birth? I'd love to hear more about it...

    I presume auto correct changed your "passive". Can you give me some examples? I do passive aggressive pretty well

    My step mum was telling me to week from 6 months as well. I always say who recommendation is 2 years and that's what I'm trying for.

    I'm at almost 21 months now and I'm over it lol.

    That IS a great achievement Moosie! Congratulations!
    Since I've given up the night feeds a few months ago I can have a drink at night once ds is asleep so this isn't the case for my mum. I think she's just embarrassed about what other people think.

    After being 'encouraged' to wean with DD1 when DD2 came along I just told everyone I was planning on breastfeeding her until she was 18 years old. When my mum said that DD2 wouldn't want to breastfeed until she was 18 I responded with 'tough luck to her, my house, my rules. It will be a good incentive for her to move out of home.' I never responded in any other way and it didn't take long for people to stop asking because they knew they were never going to get a serious answer out of me (I tried the serious answer first time round).
    When DS came long no one even commented...think I was already labelled 'crazy breastfeeding woman' by then.
