Re: How to deal with family giving us a hard time?

For me, I've always found quoting the pediatrician to be the easiest with pushy family. For us dd wasn't supposed to be in public situations for 8 weeks so I just quoted her pediatrician. So if he's not supposed to be overstimulated for a while I would just use part of that time to say "I'm sorry his pediatrician says for X weeks baby has to stay at home with family only and then he can have 1 or 2 visitors a day for up to 30 minutes for the next X weeks after that the pediatrician will decide if he can be seen more, etc at his well baby visit and we'll let everyone know" If she wants details you can give her details that don't mean anything. "He had four big poops today, doctor was impressed"

Hugs mama. I am so sorry you have this to deal with on top of having him still in the hospital. I hope you're doing ok on your healing from delivery and emotionally doing ok with everything else.
SAHM to my Dd(6/08) , Ds (9/12) and foster mom. Always praying for our five former foster kids.
