Re: What to do when your family thinks you're nuts...

I'm sure my MIL thinks I'm a little crazy, but she's polite and doesn't say anything. She knows that I love and am doing a great job raising her grandchildren.

My mom is the worst. She said that I was spoiling my 2 WEEK OLD baby, and that I was going to ruin him for life by wearing him, letting him nurse frequently and cosleep. Let alone the fact that I did all of those things with my perfectly well-adjusted six-year-old. We had many discussions. I told her that when she said things like that (and only made negative comments) that it made me feel like she thought I was failing as a mother, though I knew that wasn't the case. She has made a conscious effort to try to not criticize, but it's impossible for her. I just ignore her. I've done the research, and I know I'm doing what's right for our family.
