In all honestly, this is YOUR baby. Not theirs. When it's their baby they can do whatever they want with it. You don't have to explain yourself to them. Tell them that the health of your child outweighs what they think so you will do what is best for your child. And let them know that what is best for your child isn't something that the whole family can chime in on. You won't abuse or starve your child, so they have no say.[/b]
ITA. Thats my attitude.
and I also wanted to add that the issues of your Uncles wife weren't becasue she breastfed them. Women have been breastfeeding babies for centuries. If it was such a horrible thing than the human race would never have survived.[/b]
American and Canadian Pediatrics recommend EBF for 6 months, and at least one year.
WHO (World Health Org) recommends bfing for two years.
The list of benefits is so long, to long to list. Nak
