While I was out paying bills with mommy dearest I'd mentioned I was going to go out later and look for a double stroller for my daughter and son. She told me I wasn't going to need one because my son would be with her anyway.

I spoke up finally and said no she asked why and I told her I wasn't formula feeding. She got quiet and told me, "you're gonna wish you had."

I plan on pumping but using formula until the milk comes in. My son deserves to be with me and my daughter. Not my mom because imo the first year is important and bonding time with the baby and I want my daughter to know her brother.

Was I wrong for telling my mom I want my baby with me?

Back story if any body cares to read it

I'm not understanding either. ....

And if you don't bf from the get go your supply won't keep up. And it will be more difficult to learn to cooperate together.

I thought I could do that with my son. I was very wrong. It was stressful and ended poorly.
I nursed my girls from minutes after birth and it worked better for us
