This question came in today, please leave a comment if you can help:“Dear Aunty Lactivist I was very interested looking through your website and am in desperate need of some help and advise.
I am a mum of a 6 month old baby girl who has been following the continuum concept/attachment parenting almost exact for the last 5 months. I have read nearly every book, and have found loads of help on the internet, and have been really happy bringing her up. I have recently stumbled across starting to try her on solid foods. I would like her to be trying two meals a day (of only vegetables). It has worked to an extent, but she has recently gone off the idea of eating or trying anything.
I also now feel the peer pressure and feel embarrassed that I seem to be the only mum who still breastfeeds my baby in public. The only thing my local nurse could say to me who has been very sceptical about the way I have been bringing up my little girl, said “I need to start cracking on with weaning”.
I ideally would like to start child-led weaning instead, and am still happy to breastfeed until she is about two years old. Is there any advise you can give me or anyone you know I can try and contact?
