I want to EBF for as long as possible. My DS is a fussy 15 seeker and my DH and MIL both think I have low supply (even though I can hear DS gulping in milk) and they keep giving him a bottle (expressed milk ) or trying to give him baby food. I feel kind of set up to fail!

Get rid of the bottles and get rid of the baby food. A 15 week old baby shouldn't be getting any baby food whatsoever. You have to stand up for yourself and your baby! The only way to know baby is getting enough is diapers. As long as baby is having 6-8 diapers a day baby is getting enough. The best way to up supply is to nurse, nurse, nurse!

This won't be easy but u have to put your foot down with your MIL NOW! You are the parent. YOU are the mom. I would bet good money that it is the formula and baby food ... Especially the baby food... That is upsetting your LO's tummy!!! If you see her feeding the baby I would physically intervene. You have to protect him! What they are doing might SERIOUSLY damage your breastfeeding relationship, could very well hurt baby's tiny tummy, and could up baby's likelihood of developing an allergy! You know what's best. You are his mommy! You can do it!

I would either stop going to her house with the baby or wear the baby while there so she can't really do much.
