My parents and my in laws and my husband are all very supportive. SOme of that has to do with the fact that I have always been confident and am always finding out new information to give them. My dad actually really gets a kick out of watching toddler nursing acrobatics
OMGosh, yours too??? My DS is all over the place while BFing...DH wonders how he doesn't pull my nipple right off!
My family is okay with it....sorta.....kinda. DH really really wants me to stop. And from comments my mom makes I know she thinks it's time to wean him, but she's not going to be rude and unsupportive of my decisions.
My family is pretty supportive, my mom definately my dad begins to ask me don't you want your body back after they turn 2. My husband is behind me 100% I will actually be getting annoyed with hte older one nursing and he will stick up for them, I have asked him why he is so pro extended nursing and he said he wouldn't want to give them up His family has learned to shut their mouths about the whole deal. His Aunt was a maternity nurse and she has "approved" of extended nursing so they don't talk about it negatively anymore.

My ILs (which includes my MIL, who's a former NICU nurse) are pretty bothered by it, but they don't actually know I'm still nursing. Thankfully they live far far away... She was bothered when he was like 2 months though so I just figure that's ignorance for ya. My parents, I think, are ok with it but are a little weirded out that I'm still going. I don't see them too often either cuz they live 5 hours away, so thankfully it doesn't come up much. I don't plan on letting it change what I'm doing, but it DOES bother me when my mom comments. I think she's learned to just give it up now. If she does start up again asking why, I plan on forwarding her some of the articles on the benefits!!
