So when a bfing mom has that child turn one, I highly recommend reading Mothering Your Nursing Toddler because it gives you so much confidence in your decision. Well, I started re-reading it now that Samantha turned two and man is it worth reading twice. I relate and am so much more relaxed about the solids issue then I was at 12 months of nursing. Again, it's just amazing at restoring your faith in the natural process. I just wanted to share.

Cheers!

Thanks for the reminder, I've seen you mention this book but never got around to buying it. I think I will now!

I obviously have a long way to go before Colette is 1, but I may go ahead and get it now. It can't hurt and I also like knowing all the info so I can encourage friends to BF as long as possible.

Ian is 1 on saturday, but have completely spent my budget for books for awhile on kid books. Got some really good ones though, including Katy No Pocket , Sylvestor and the Magic Wishing Pebble, the Story of Ping, and danny and the Dinosaur, anyone else remember those? I got some newer ones too, Billy loves the Five Ducks right now, and Ian likes it too, bought The Snow Dragon, Five Littel Monkeys and some others too, spent way too much on books, but they'll be good for home education too.

I may well check that book out - I could use some encouragement after the rough patch we went through. I've been looking for info on the pros and cons of extended breastfeeding, so that next time my GP tells me to stop breastfeeding I can tell her why I'd rather not. I swear, if I went to see my GP about a sprained ankle, she would somehow blame it on the fact that I am "still" breastfeeding

LOL, yes their must be some way breastfeeding can cause sprained ankles too.
I am getting quite annoyed with having health problems blamed on breastfeeding and if i get it again this time am going to ask for it writing or for them to get the senior dr in, who is actually a bit more inteligiant (OB/GYN so you'd think theyw ould know something about breastfeeding!).
On the extended breastfeeding bit though, my brother was still breastfeeding at 2 when i got Russian Flu, which is somewhat related to the current swine flu going around. I was desperately ill lost about 35 lbs which was over 1/3 of my body weight, severe resperatory problems and so on. My brother had a stuffy nose for a few days. And once he was weaned I was always the healthier of the two of us.
Even my dh who was always uncomfortable with breastfeeding past 1 year says he is really glad Ian is breastfeeding now. A friend of ours is in hospital with flu now, delirious, doesnt even know where he is, so we expect the results will come back swine flu. Hope he gets over this soon, he is really a nice person, Billy calls him Mr Fix It and adores him, and he's just one of those people devotes his whole life to his family.

If money is an issue, borrow it from LLL.

If your doctor is giving you bad information, come over to the BPOY sticky. (It's in my siggie too.) Have them dispute that info!

Well breastfeeding could be depleting your bone density making you more prone for a sprained ankle.....

Have you tried to tell them what WHO recommends? What is the official recommendation in the UK?

Something nice to read while she is having growth spurts. It's great that you have your goal set for 1+ years. I had that same start out goal and it was great to meet it.

I'm 90% certain my GP is aware of WHO and UK gov recommendations, but has her own opinion. She did tell me that she didn't breastfeed her children at all. I don't know for certain whether that's because she tried and couldn't or just didn't want to, but I'd put my money on the latter. Other than her breastfeeding attitude, she's actually very nice! Fortunately the surgery has other GPs, so next time I go I'll just request someone else.

I saw the book on amazon UK with a recommendation and comment from Elizabeth Pantley. It's on my wishlist now
