Almost 8 months later I still get hounded by my MIL about not breastfeeding my child. It wasn't a choice that I was comfortable with. She (MIL) told me she breasfed all 3 of her children, but when I talked to my DH dad he said she never once did it with his 2, otherwise he wouldn't have had to buy all the formula he did.
On Mother's Day we had a family cookout here and DHs Aunt annouced she was expecting in October. People got to asking her questions and one was "Are you going to BF?" her response was "Yes, I plan too." My Milk turned around and said "Atleast someone will." I felt really insulted and wanted to ask her to leave, but I didn't want to be the *itchy DIL.
I understand a mothers milk is better for the baby, but what if its not for you or if you can't produce it.
I don't feel like a horrible mother, its just I'm tired of being hounded about it.
What are your thoughts and opinions?
