Re: Vent about MIL
Stay strong and continue to stand your ground! I have the same problem, but with my own mother. Ironically, my MIL is the supportive one. Ppl criticize things that are foreign to them. I know that my mom gives me a hard time because she does not understand the amazing bond that dd and I have cultivated as a result of bf. I just do not see why they think feeding with a bottle is their only way the connect with their grandchild. There are numerous other activities which babies enjoy to allow them to build a relationship. My mom even goes as far as purchasing every type of bottle on the market in hopes that my dd will take one so that she can fed her. Dd gets so upset each and every time she attempts it, but she is determined to get her to take one. I am hoping that eventually she will just give up.
