I think that it is a generation thing. My mom did not nurse any of my sisters or I because that was not the thing to do. Every time my DS #1 would cry, she would say, "Maybe you are not making enough milk." I got frustrated with her saying that one day, I expressed some milk to show her I had some, and I ended up squirting DS #1 in the forehead. I started laughing when it happened, and she stopped harping on me about my milk supply.
