I hate when someone asks me if I'm *STILL* nursing (with the half-cocked head and sympathetic face). Why wouldn't I be? My son is four months old.
I hate it when someone asks me how long I intend to breast feed. I respond with, "I think I'd like to go for 18-24 months." They look at me like I have two heads.
I hate that I can't stand on a podium and shout that I'm proud that I'm an nursing mother without someone getting offended because they couldn't/didn't breast feed.
Something changed yesterday.
A friend who recently had a baby messaged me. She was having issues in the boob department, and because I'd been so vocal about breast feeding, she thought I could help.
I could help. I did help.
Through all the controversy I've stirred on facebook, my MIL's house, or just in general regarding what boobs were meant for, I got through to someone.
Every bit was worth it. I'm going to continue being a breastfeeding advocate. I don't care if people start actually believing that I have two heads.
Because I also have two boobs. :)
