I hope that the links provided you with enough quick things to say when you want some BF benefits on hand! I wish you all the best. I wouldn't say that my family was UN-supportive, but like you, my Mom formula fed my brother and I and pretty much everyone in my family (except my MIL) didn't see the "big deal" about breastfeeding and why it was SO important to me to do it! I did it for 14 months and started solids at 5 months. After I started solids, I got a lot of, "When are you going to quit nursing?" And that was always irritating!
I said we would quit when we BOTH wanted to, and that's exactly what I did. Breastfeeding is NATURAL. Women *make* milk when their babies are born! Why, if you have a choice, would you choose to ignore this milk supply and instead spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on man made formula?
Thanks to cavewoman for my adorable siggy!
