I feel included now, I've had my first "oh, is he still on the boob" with hmm face.
DS was one last week, he's not that old!!
and he has ONE feed a day, which I have no intention of stopping before DC2 comes

Yes you've passed, welcome to the club grin.

Did you smile and say yes, tell them that Bfing is recommended for a minimum of 2 years by WHO or just say "it suits us as a family"? smile

Very jealous, we are at 15 months and still boring old tolerance from everywhere smile. Think it may be because DD is small and bald and only looks big if I sit next to a mum BFing a real littley. Seriously...with so much support and so little antipathy, why would I stop!?

Yay! Congratulations! grin

Sadly at 15 months all I've ever had is a "Don't (supermarket) provide a feeding area?"

to which I replied, "Yes, here." (in cafe)

grin carrotcake

ds is only 8months but is not going to give up anytime soon. i stopped feeding my older 2 in public around this age so have been thinking about how things will be over the next few months for us.

I just smile beautifically at everyone in a 'yes, I know, still nursing. Isn't it just lovely' type way. They never say a word other than to be nice grin
Welcome to the club

Well done carrot grin

my answer was yes and a probably rather passive aggressive smile

People have asked before (luckily I havent experienced any negativity in all the time I've been feeding him), but this was my first hmm face!

wait until you're tandeming with a 3 year old. Then the 'surprise' turns to people shuffling away, backwards.....

My DD (13 months) only has 2 feeds now morning and evening so we never feed in public but sometimes I really want people to know I'm still breastfeeding as I'm really proud of myself (and her) for being in that small percentage that gets past one year! Family and friends know obviously and don't really say anything either way!
