"Oh good, 6 months is long enough anyway, when you told me you wanted to feed for 1 year, I thought that was overboard."
"I'm glad you aren't one of those moms who breastfeed forever. When they can ask for food, it is time to quit"
"I think moms who feed past a year are doing it for their own pleasure"
"It was about time, your body just wasn't equipped to making enough milk for her" Ok, this is hurtful because it makes you feel like something is wrong with you. You aren't able to produce enough food, so a comment like this is a stab to the heart.
"I think you were eating too much spicy food, that is horrible for the baby"
"Formula is much better today then ever before, breastfeeding isn't as necessary anymore."
"Now I am happy I get to bottle feed her now cause you were always feeding her."
I know some of the comments weren't meant to be hurtful, but I don't think the person put much thought into what they said before they said it. You are already sensitive to if you are caring for your baby the right way, so supportive comments of what the mother decides to do, is always the way to go. Critzing, being unsupportive, or being snippy is not helpful and only makes you not go to that person when you have questions or need advice. Just because someone is old does not always mean they are wiser, because someone has 4 kids does not make them a expert in parenting, and a Dr does not mean they have common sense or always know what is best for you and your baby. That little voice that is inside all of us, yes the one that we try to ignore at times because everyone around us tells us otherwise, well that is the voice we need to listen to most.
