Or have I had a sense of humouyr bypass and I seriously need to rediscover it? hmm I know that bf an older baby is unusual but he's not fed that often. He usually says it when I give him his morning feed but it can be at any time. I just don't find it funny at all and I'm getting more and more irritated grrr!!

It's the laziest and most unimaginative thing anyone can say about BF'ing. Tell him to naff off.

yanbu - that would wind me up
is he otherwise supportive
does he know why it's a good thing?

I fed mine until they were 18 months. Glad this was before the "bitty" years though.

Probably not funny the first time.
Must be pretty tedious by now

that would nark me too actually.

I'd probably kill him. Nob.

(sorry, that's not particularly helpful)

I still feed my 18 month old. Believe me, if I ever heard DH say bitty, he wouldn't do it a second time.
Have a serious word with him, it is undermining a wonderful thing you are doing for your child.
Congrats btw.

Tell him it's irritating and withhold sex until he stops saying it. I would be annoyed too.

Tell him to fuck off. If your son was 11 years old I think he'd have a point but he is still a little baby. angry

I fed ds1 until he was nearly 16 months old and he is supportive. Its just recent thing as hes got older. Come to think of it its since the new series of little britain really but its not funny its annoying tbh. Believe it or not at other times he's told me that hes proud of me for bf for so long etc.

Throw something hard at him.

yanbu I would tell him to fark off. DP wouldn't think of saying anything like that and if he did once he wouldn't be saying it again!

I hate those sketches. That would annoy me so much.

MingMingtheWonderPet Tue 21-Oct-08 21:18:10

YANBU - That would really annoy me

ChairmumMiaow Tue 21-Oct-08 21:18:53

Arrgh. Tell your husband to Fuck Right off and that he's an insensitive shit!
Definitely withhold sex until he grows up.

When DS was born I was going to BF till he could have cows milk and it was DH that specifically asked that I try to keep going till 2 as per WHO guidelines.

If he is generally supportive then i'm sure he would stop if you explain how it makes you feel. Perhaps he doesn't realise it's upsetting you. Men usually sometimes need you to spell things out to them.

slap him with a fish

he is being a muppet and clearly needs a bit of education.

Not least about his choice of comedy sketches to mimick.

BouncingTurtleSkulls Tue 21-Oct-08 21:20:06

YANBU. If he were my DH, he'd be wearing his knackers around his neck if he made such comments to me!
Kick him in the nuts grin

MrsSnape Tue 21-Oct-08 21:21:26

That would seriously piss me off. Just the kind of thing my ex would say. Idiot that he was.

PustuleRots Tue 21-Oct-08 21:22:54

If he doesn't stop then every time he wants sex, or anything for that matter, say to him.."computer says no!"

LittleBellaLugosi Tue 21-Oct-08 21:25:16

OK he's obviously very ignorant, but I think the way to deal with it is to educate him. FORCE him to look at Kellymom, the WHO site recommending BF for a minimum of 2 years, MAKE him realise that his conditioned response is wrong and needs to be changed in line with his enlightenment.

Getting narked won't make him see what an arse he is. Educating him will. (Unless of course, he's hopelessly thick.)
