my MIL threatened to call CPS on me...

because she found out I am not breastfeeding my newborn triplets... I also have 2 other children ( so 5 children under the age of 5 ) ... she is really annoying me... I know CPS wont follow through and that I have absolutly nothing to worry about ( besides what a loon she is) .... but OMG she is so crazy !

  • Let her. It's not a crime and you aren't abusing them. That would also be the last time I talked to her. That's just not cool in my book. You're supposed to be family, supporting each other.

  • It's not a crime to not BF your children. It pisses me off that wackos will call CPS over dumb ass things and in the meantime REAL abuse is happening...

  • unless she has another complaint other than you not breastfeeding cps will not bother coming out...u arent doing anything illegal cps does not have the funds to visit every parent that doesnt breastfeed their kids...
