My MIL flipped out on me a little bit ago for giving my DD more milk. MIL "she's only meant to get 16 oz which is two cups of milk à day!!!" Well we ran out of DD's juice last night and we went have money for more til Friday and DD out right don't like water and refuses to drink it. I ask my MIL what I'm to do let my toddler cry cuz she wants a drink and keep pushing water at her? My MIL was like "u get wic for the kid right? Why don't u go use the shit and get ur kid juice?!" Well I can't use any of the wic checks until Friday which is went well have money anyway so we were just gonna get everything on Friday. She flipped out more telling me I'm a bull shit lair and to show her my DD's wic checks. I told her no and asked what the big deal was DH and I buy the milk anyway so does it bother her and why does she need to know?

Uh, she needs to calm down. Its milk, not arsenic. Geez. She would crap her pants at the amount my dd drinks. She has drank a gallon of milk a day since she was two, she is now twelve.

Juice is bad for her teeth so only a crappy parent would push juice. Yes, you should push water.

She gets zero say since it's not her child, you don't have to show her shit. However, it's pretty obvious that you live with the woman, so it's safe to say that she's at her snapping point. Find a place of your own.

Do you live with your MIL? She sounds like a peach.

You really should push the water. If she is thirsty she will eventually drink it and it is much better for her and her teeth.

non of her business, but she is correct kids do not need more than 16oz of milk a day. Your little one will drink water if she is thirsty. Still not MIL's business though.
