I can't believe my MIL said this to me!!!

My MIL is passing thru and stops at our house to "bond" with our 11 month old. She says, "I just want to ask you something, I just want to know". So already i'm like what is she going to say. Then she asks me, why did "I" wean my daughter from her paci? I tell her. Then she says, well I just think a pacifier and rocking chair (which she urged me to get and I didn't) are vital tools a baby needs to....

I have no idea what she said after to because I tuned her out. I really thought this was rude. Now keep in mind I don't have a problem with you asking me a question, or even disagreeing with me, it's the judgment behind that you can leave at home.

Our daughter's age is mentioned above and she has been off the paci since 7 or 8 months. Why is it that she is just now asking? I feel like she just wanted to pick with me about something.

I see nothing wrong with her being off the pacifier. My daughter quit it at like 4 months... She didn't want it because it didn't give her food lol. I think I read somewhere that if kiuds use the pacifers too long it messes with their teeth.

And she wonders why we don't have a closer relationship. Everytime she comes, she has some little comment like that. It's so annoying

I think you're ignorant if you're going to get offended by a little discussion with your mil... seriously, get off your high horse.
Ps. I never used a paci or rocking chair, so I'm not agreeing with your MIL...

My daughter stopped taking a paci when she was 7 months old. She just didn't want it anymore.

What? Why did you quote yourself?

My son was only a couple of months old when he discarded it. He had more fun throwing it than using it so I trashed em. She sounds like she wants you to feel like she has all the advice and you should only come to her if you need something.

Yeah. You have bigger issues then your mil if you get upset over something like that.

 It seems as though she is a "picker". And that is fine. Smile, and let it go in one ear and out the other. From my experience, the first year with your oldest is the hardest with in laws. Especially if you do things differently than they did. But all of the little things that are big things now, will soon be obsolete problems. My inlaws and I struggled a lot with my first. Now? SO CLOSE! Wait it out.
