“You’re still breastfeeding?”


Anybody else seem to get this comment a lot? My little girl is 4 months today and almost every time (even at like 2 months!) I talk to someone in my husband’s family, they say “are you still breastfeeding?” in a way that sounds like I’m the weird one for feeding my baby this way. My family also keeps asking when she can have baby food (I’m waiting until 6 months).

A little background - my SIL tried breastfeeding with her 3 kids, but never made it past 3 months. My parents formula fed my brother and me. I get it that maybe this is unusual to them, but I intend to do it for a year (until I go back to work) and to constantly be asked if I’m still breastfeeding is already annoying 😂
