Just done my bit to educate the hv. NOW she knows about natural term weaning.

She tried the "what about still feeding an 8 yo" shock tactics. I did not bite.

She is pregnant so it might even be useful info.

A HV said that to you? Hope you're intending to write a letter as well.

HV are the bane of my freaking life right now. <seethes>

Oh, and well done.

She said bf can only finish with screaming and a lot of upset. There is no other way.

She is fairly useless all round. I`ve been thinking about writing a letter about them all anyway.

Jesus I'm now furious. PLEASE write a letter and complain. That kind of bullshit when there is supposed to be a movement to improve breastfeeding rates is horrific.

Also remember that you do not have to see a HV. You are allowed to opt out.

I finished bf with no screaming and upset and they were 1.5. My boobs were upset though!

Hi sorry I don't get your post - can someone please explain?

Maybe I am tired because I have been up since 2 am with bfing until 4 am and now i can not sleep?

My first bf until 2.5 and then I was pregnant and I found it too difficult to bf so I stopped without tears or anything?? Although toddler still goes on about how he liked it! smile
