I find it incredibly annoying that people who I run into, family members we don't see often, etc. without fail ask if I'm breastfeeding. I hate it, it makes me uncomfortable. I say no and then leave it but if they ask why then I usually just say she has stomach problems which made it really hard for her. Which is 100% true, but it still pains me to talk about it.
She's eating solids now but I just wonder when will people stop asking? when she's 5? IDK
That's true also, many people don't understand extended BF, when I had told my family I wanted to BF for at least a year they thought I was nuts. Well, it didn't work out so at least they don't have to deal with it.
I had people asking me all the time with my first baby and even though I wanted to BF I couldn't due to medications I needed to take. Everyone would say to me "well then don't take the medication, BFing is SO much better for your baby" Yea, easier said than done, especially when my dr ordered me to take my medication for MY HEALTH.
My second son had stomach issues as he's lactose intolerant and had to be put on soy formula. I hate that you have to explain yourself and your parenting choices to people!
