Go you!!! My son is 19 months and we are still going strong with nursing. Love all the comments I got along the way too. Trusting our mommy instincts is always better than listening to people preaching what they think is right in regards to child rearing. (image)

I couldn't agree with this statement more:
"what I wanted to say is that you guys should really keep your 'smart-arse' opinions to yourself,

especially if you've NEVER breastfeed before."

AMEN.

Congrats! We're just at eight months, but I'm determined to make it to 14 months (weird goal, I know) at least!

Good for you! It is true, comments like these do come from mothers who didn't breastfed their kids too long. I breastfed my lil girl up til she was 3 and there's nothing wrong with it. She's a healthy lil girl who doesn't get sick easily all due to the nutrients from breast milk!

Wow that is amazing. I wish I could have done it! I feel like I deprived my little one simply because I let stress and others get me so wound up that breast feeding came to a halt. More power to you!

Happy 18 months old, Ben! (image)
Son was on breastmilk until 14 months old and gradually weaned to whole milk, and I'm treasuring our daily morning breastfeed. Yup, no formula milk in our house too.

Hi Michelle!
Thanks for your comment and totally agree with you! Mummy knows the best! (image)

Hey Rosebelle!
Wow! 3 years! Good for you! (image)

Hi Kayla!
I feel new mums are very vulnerable the first few weeks after they delivered, so these are the period where support and encouragement from others are vital. Don't feel bad, you can always try again on your next one! (image)

Hey MieVee!
Yeay to 0 formula in the house! (image)

Hi Alisha!
Thanks for the follow. I've returned the favor. Looking forward to seeing you back in my blog sometime! (image)

Hi Miki!
Yeap! Set my mind on it, and make sure it works. After all, I quit my job so that I can breastfeed Ben for at least 6 months. And since already quit, just breastfeed as long as Ben wants... and blink blink eye... suckle suckle suckle... it's 18 months already! (image)

Thanks for your comment! (image)

good girl yourself!! We're just about 2 weeks ahead of you: we passed the 18mth mark on the 19th of August. I think I've heard it all too at this stage...I just put all those odd comments down to a lack of understanding. I don't think all those well wishers mean any harm, later on the'll be telling us how to discipline our kids, what they should wear, watch and how they should be doing in school. I think most are trying to help....but we know what we're doing. (image) Keep up the good work!!!

Hello Aideen!

Oh yeah... these well wishers always have something to say, I agree! Now I'm getting the 'Why are you not potty training him?'... Sigh...

Thanks for your comment and support and you go to girl for 18 months+!

GOOD JOB JENNY!
Keep receiving those negative statements from my friends & family as well (image) till i duno how to answer them with the benefits of breastfeeding (image) my son is a bit smaller than other babies, they just claim that because he is breastfeed, not enough nutrient (because breastmilk is watery), thats y my son is shorter & not chubby as other babies (image)

Hi Mommy Psedornna!
No need to explain much if ppl don't want to listen.

Big, fat or chubby babies doesn't mean they are healthy... I have friends who overfeeds their baby with formula (unlike breastfeeding, baby stops when they are full) so babies being FF end up being overfed cos they just drink and drink however much you gave them. Then their small stomachs keep expanding because the amount of formula given is a lot, so end up drinking more and more lor... vicious cycle.. (image)

So, friends and relatives who tell me their babies are chubby and fat and its not because of BF, I don't comment one cos I know breastmilk is the real deal. Plus, breast milk is for human babies (image)

As for babies size, shorter or smaller it depends on you and your hubby's genes lah...

Don't fret much with what others said!

Hey there,

I've been breastfeeding for 2 months now. Although it seems little, but I'm proud to be able to overcome all the negative comments that my in laws & elderly people gave. It was very depressing!

Thank God I persevered and go on with breastfeeding. You go, girl!

Hi Tracy!

Good for you! Keep it up! In my opinion, how long or short the BF duration is doesn't matter, at least you attempt it and is doing it still, rather than some people I know who doesn't even bother trying it at all! Such a waste!

Continue on and wishing you all the best!
