I don't even know how to take this. It was from a friend who had her baby the same time as me, but she only pumped the first day and then went to formula. Oh, and I guess I should add that I'm telling everyone I'm stopping at a year even though I don't even know that for sure. I'm planning on just going with the flow.

From her:
"Just thought of something - you may want to stop breastfeeding before shcool is out otherwise your milk may not dry up till August."

I replied:
"Hmm, I hadn't thought of that." (I had no clue what to say to that)

Her response:
"You will be with her all summer (we're teachers) therefore making milk."

What does that even mean? I never responded after that because I thought it was so weird.

That is bizarre. Why would she say anything about your breastfeeding, as far as I can tell it's your business if your still making milk come August! Some people are just too nosy for their own good.

Some people just need to say what they feel. drives me nuts. i constantly get the "when are you stopping" question, and it drives me nuts.
But that is a really dumb reason to stop.

I don't understand why it would matter if I'm still making milk in August. Plus, even if I do stop when she's one, there's nothing to say when I'll dry up. She's also the one who told me to stop so that my boobs will fit in my bridesmaid dress in June (not her wedding - don't worry, it's not a bridezilla thing).

Weird. I guess she must be really concerned about your milk drying up to have put that much thought into it. She probably just feels like a failure or regrets stopping so wants you to as well. Maybe it is a slap in the face to her?

I find it annoying too. The past couple weeks, I haven't been getting as much when pumping at work (think it is stress related) and I said I was worried because I didn't want him to run out of milk while he is at his Dad's and a couple people commented that he is almost 6 months old and there really isn't any reason to BF after that anyway. WT*????

Hmmm, yeah, I'm not really sure what she was even trying to get at with that. It sounds a lot like the typical "You need to stop breastfeeding now" nosiness, which drives me nuts! My boobs = my business.
