My daughter had her one year check up. She is perfect and healthy. The doctor told me that I didn't need to nurse her anymore. I was surprised so I said that I thought it was recommended as long as both mommy and baby are okay with it until they are 2 years old. She shook her head and gave me a weird look and re-iterated that I can quit nursing now but since I'm not working then it is okay if I want to. It wasn't a friendly conversation like oh you can quit now if you want to, it was more like why are you still nursing even though she didn't use those words.
I don't want to quit nursing. My daughter loves nursing. She just turned one. I realize that we are entering the extended nursing phase but it isn't like she is 5 years old and the doctor needs to remind me that it is okay to quit nursing.
At 4 months old she told me to give the baby rice cereal. I understand that some babies need it for health reasons, but my daughter was fine. I am starting to think that the doctor might be just a little to old skool for me.
