I am an avid subscriber to the Whatever Floats Your Boat club and did not intend my last post to be at all preachy or judgmental or anything like that. On the contrary, I was feeling paranoid about societal pressure and felt the need to defend my right to continue to nurse past age 1...I have no clue why I'd been feeling so unnecessarily paranoid and insecure about it, but I'm not now and part of getting here was blogging about it. Catharsis is the name of the game.
In short, please know that I don't think that I know what's best for ANYBODY'S kid but my own, and I hope I never act like I do because I try really hard not to. It's hard enough for mamas these days without other mamas judging them...From where I stand, nursing seemed like the path of least resistance, so I took it, and since me and my nursing partner are happy on that path, we've decided to stay a little while longer.
